Multiple Usernames & Passwords No More: OneID Unveils Its Next-Gen Identity Service. Today, our online identities are fragmented across an array of usernames, email addresses, screen names, social media accounts, passwords, and on and on.

Multiple Usernames & Passwords No More: OneID Unveils Its Next-Gen Identity Service

We struggle to remember our login info and passwords, so oftentimes we use a few simple passwords that are easy to remember, or find ourselves turning to hints or inboxes to remember our forgotten permutations. Of course, this can cause cracks in our security armor, especially when it comes to online transactions, leaving us vulnerable to online thieves and no-goodniks.

Enter: OneID, a San Jose-based startup launching in beta today that is aiming to play a role in the next-generation of digital identity with a service that eliminates the need for multiple usernames and passwords. With OneID, users can securely log in to websites (across platforms), paying online with one single digital identity. As such, OneID’s identity software runs in four places — browsers, mobile devices, websites, and the cloud.

Google+ is now allowing nicknames, pseudonyms & more

Up until now, Google+ users were supposed to only use their given-by-their-parents-on-a-birth-certificate names, which might have worked well for a lot of normal social-web users accustomed to that policy by Facebook-driven norms. But the policy didn’t sit well with a lot of others, from artists and developers to the many other types of individuals who commonly use handles other than their given names as they move through real and online spaces. In a Google+ post announcing the change, Google executive Bradley Horowitz wrote, “Today we’re pleased to be launching features that will address and remedy the majority of these issues. The Verified Twitter Account for Rupert Murdoch's Wife Was Fake. Rupert Murdoch joined Twitter last week.

The Verified Twitter Account for Rupert Murdoch's Wife Was Fake

So did his wife, Wendi Deng Murdoch. "Joining my husband @rupertmurdoch in our new digital adventure on Twitter," reads her bio. Cute, right? Rupert was verified, Wendi was verified, and so began another cute chapter of celebrities figuring out how to use Twitter. Much to the world's surprise - and inability to cope - Rupert turns out to be pretty good at Twitter.

Hello Twitter. Yes, that's right. Remember this cute exchange between Rupert and fake-Wendi, when Rupert said something politically prickly, and fake-Wendi hollered at him to delete the tweet? @rupertmurdoch RUPERT!!! People blogged about that. To those of you who kept maintaining the account was fake, even after being verified, good on you for being suspicious.— Wendi Deng Murdoch (@Wendi_Deng) January 3, 2012 Update 11:01 a.m. Twitter has responded with a tweet confirming that it did verify the @Wendi_Deng account for a short time on Jan. 2.

Ces derniers jours ont été marqués par un certain nombre d’annonces des grands acteurs du Web, et en premier lieu le dévoilement par Mark Zuckerberg de la stratégie mobile de Facebook.

Activité de votre réseau : « Gmail Api  just unfriend « Facebook  !

Aujourd’hui, on apprend que Google a décidé de fermer l’API Contacts de Gmail à Facebook en mettant en avant le caractère asymétrique de leurs relations et le manque d’ouverture du réseau social. A mon sens ces mouvements sont importants et en disent beaucoup sur leurs velléités de gestion de notre identité numérique ! Présente-moi tes amis et ils resteront… avec les miens. Facebook propose des « Trusted friends » en cas de piratage. La plateforme aux 800M d’utilisateurs a dévoilé hier une nouvelle fonctionnalité afin de renforcer la sécurité et la confidentialité des données des adeptes du réseau.

Facebook propose des « Trusted friends » en cas de piratage

L’idée est de limiter les risques de piratage de comptes. Facebook propose donc de choisir entre trois et cinq « amis de confiance » pour que le titulaire d’un compte détourné puisse reprendre le contrôle de son profil. Concrètement, en cas de piratage l’utilisateur peut demander à la direction du réseau de générer et faire parvenir des codes à leurs plus proches amis sélectionnés.

Facebook's Randi Zuckerberg: Anonymity Online 'Has To Go Away' Randi Zuckerberg, Facebook’s marketing director, has a fix for cyberbullying: stop people from doing anything online without their names attached.

Facebook's Randi Zuckerberg: Anonymity Online 'Has To Go Away'

Facebook requires all members to use their real names and email addresses when joining the social network -- a policy that has been difficult at times to enforce, as the prevalence of spam accounts or profiles assigned to people’s pets suggest. Zuckerberg, who is Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg’s sister, argued that putting an end to anonymity online could help curb bullying and harassment on the web. “I think anonymity on the Internet has to go away,” she said during a panel discussion on social media hosted Tuesday evening by Marie Claire magazine. “People behave a lot better when they have their real names down. … I think people hide behind anonymity and they feel like they can say whatever they want behind closed doors.” “There's so much more we can do,” she said.

“So when does it get better? Another Reason Facebook Wants a Web of Real Identities: Commerce. Last week, Facebook’s marketing head, Randi Zuckerberg, caused a stir when she asserted that online anonymity has to go away.

Another Reason Facebook Wants a Web of Real Identities: Commerce

But the reason large, powerful networks are pushing for a world in which our verified and authenticated identities exist online isn’t simply to stop cyber-bullying and to create incentives for users to behave more nicely. This is about money. Part of the company’s drive is also to help users leverage their online identities to transform and accelerate online commerce. The topic of online identity and anonymity is polarizing. Powerful interests have strong incentives to build a web where real identities rule. Unfortunately, none of these debates address the heart of the matter in this specific context, which is that for networks like Facebook, the game is to encourage its users to leverage their real identities online so that Facebook can accelerate its ability to power online transactions.

Google reveals what it would do running the Postal Service. The postal sector asked the question yesterday, “What Would Google Do?”

Google reveals what it would do running the Postal Service

If it was running the struggling US Postal Service. And Google came back with a reply. Yesterday saw a fascinating event held in Arlington, Virginia, in which the postal sector grilled various internet and digital gurus to grasp some idea of how the physical mail industry should be responding to the digital revolution. Among the respected experts sharing their views at the PostalVision2020 conference was Google’s vice president and “co-founder of the internet”, Vint Cerf. And while there was much talk during the day about various potential for the USPS to move into new digital forms of communications, the Google vice president said that actually, the internet search giant would probably take advantage of the unique asset of the USPS if it was running the agency.
