And yet today, while I should be popping open a bottle of champagne or at least busting out the Facebook sticker version to celebrate the anniversary of our victory, I'm still getting messages from people whose accounts are unfairly reported and blocked. Many are shocked and deeply hurt that they're being singled out and required to provide proof of the names that friends, family, and often thousands of followers know them by online and off.

Would you really interact with everyone, or only the people you truly consider to be your friends? After all, there are plenty of people on social networking sites that we add just for the sake of it.
