Grab your pitchforks and text art tanks: Huffington Post is doubling down on its anonymity crackdown.
The site’s new commenting system, explained by Tim McDonald, HuffPost’s director of community, requires users to have a Facebook account:
Here’s how to get started under this new system. When you log in to your account and go to make a comment, you will be prompted to link your commenting account to your verified Facebook account. Then, choose how you’d like your name to be displayed. You can either display your first and last names, or your first name and last initial. This is the only information that will be viewable to the community at large, and you will have control over your private information via Facebook’s privacy settings.
