Facebook’s marketing director Randi Zuckerberg, wants to put an end to online anonymity. She believes that Internet users would act much more responsibly on the Internet if they were forced to use their real names at all times.

Zuckerberg, who also happens to be the sister of Facebook’s co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, said during a presentation at a roundtable hosted Tuesday by Marie Claire magazine on cyberbullying and social media that the use of real names online could help curb bullying and harassment on the web.

I think anonymity on the Internet has to go away… People behave a lot better when they have their real names down. … I think people hide behind anonymity and they feel like they can say whatever they want behind closed doors.Zuckerberg didn’t offer any specifics but maintained that “there’s so much more we can do…We’re actively tying to work with partners like Common Sense Media and our safety advisory committee.”
