Very interesting in the least, but seems like an ad rant to me....
facebook and google are doing it wrong, twitter is better!! -sigh-
He has this ideal that everyone uses facebook for the same reasons. I don't use facebook for myself--pfft fuck that--I use it simply because it's much more intricate than just emailing all of my friends. Emails are dull xD.
Very interesting talk - I relate to quite a bit of that; I discuss a lot of stuff here I'd feel a bit ashamed discussing with, say, university colleagues.
There's also the important issue of work/life separation. Not long ago, two people from a local news agency were fired because they were talking on Twitter - under their real names - about how obituaries were written in advance, before people died; they were chatting amongst themselves about stuff that's old hat in news agencies, but they were also speaking as professionals - because they couldn't separate their identities like they would do IRL. That's just one of many ways you could be judged as an employee due to what you do in your free time.
Also, obligatory relevant xkcd strip:
(I'm not really as outwardly passionate as Randall here, but I think he has a strong point.)

Funny thing - I prefer using e-mail because I prefer talking to people one-on-one without being too much in the spotlight.
A minute and a half in and I'm wondering if it could be any more boring and anymore like a rant about rivals success.
You know what? When it comes to identity people are just themselves, they only have one self, anyone wanting to invent or reinvent or assume multiple identities is a complete and utter asshat usually, I never seen any, for instance, create multiple accounts on here for any purpose other than being and ass or trying to circumvent the rules and that's exactly why its prohibited.
