Kashmir Hill writes about the recent brouhaha over Facebook asking users if they would confirm or deny whether a friend was using their real name. Although fellow privacy advocate Paul Bernal in the U.K. was quite upset over the survey, this blog viewed it as creepy but not really inconsistent with Facebook’s policies and attempt to monetize its service but serving up more real-name users to advertisers.

In any event, as Kash reports, Facebook stopped using the survey, so everyone can just calm down until Facebook’s next privacy-disrespectful move.
