Prove ID before opening a social media account?

This is the only way people are going to stop being racist.

I'm not saying the social media companies should hold the data about us, but maybe use your government gateway account so log into your social accounts so then people will maybe think twice before calling someone racist names or bullying people. 

I think days of being anonymous online should be over!

I really don't enough about this to comment about any specific methods.

Oh that's just your account to log onto your government account for your taxes and what not. 👍🏻

This is a very good point and I would love to see this implemented, I had to close my FB page due to increased harassment, you block one minute and then they join with another account, a bit like the multi accounts on here. So sad.

It would also discourage keyboard warriors.... Maybe everyone here can put up a pic so we can see who is who?

I promise not to report you for changing one of my posts in your quotation....

sorted....I'm gonna speak to BB about the editing facility because as far as I'm concerned, apart from staff with a good reason. nobody should have the ability to edit anyone else's posts.

Caz.......never ever do that again. What I post is what I post and not show up as some bastardized comments from someone else.

I thought that for someone to enter your page you had to accept a 'friend;' request.

Yes and no, depends on the content you post (public or not) people can still contact you via messenger, it was four years ago so may have improved. But I am not a friend of social media anymore it was my job at Rio Tintoand it got boring with all the crap I posted and I found people were just posting crap as well.

I can only post on 'friends' pages, my own page and any groups I have been accepted into.

I ain't buying your harassment story.

Just another piss poor attempt at a pity party. 

Just ask any women, sad cases everywhere just a preoccupation.

comment deleted Caz.....no need for that. Mags made a comment which you disagree with but it was not derogatory. Take it to pm if you wish but I'm not having a stooshie starting on open forum.

Yes but when you get a shit load in a day you beg the question why but they have improved the settlings now but I don't do it as it gives me a reason to meet people for coffee.
