Night Clubs Using Facebook to Check Your I.D. [POLL]
Here’s a new twist on Facebook! Bouncers at clubs in the U.K. are now checking your Facebook account to make sure the name on your I.D. matches your Facebook profile.
Some people think it’s a great idea, but others? Not so much.
Nick Pickles, from the campaign group Big Brother Watch, said he was against the idea of checking Facebook accounts.
“Not only is it ridiculous from a security point of view, it’s an affront to the basic rights of people to be able to live their lives in private,” he said.
“If the problem is that people haven’t got good enough quality IDs, then let’s make sure they do have good enough quality IDs.
“This shouldn’t be an excuse for nightclubs to snoop and pry into people’s private lives.”
