How can the new users of Facebook address themselves as Angel, Princess, Rani, Er., CA? Yes, now you can’t add these adjectives before you name as Facebook is asking for Aadhaar authentication.
After, linking Aadhaar with bank accounts, mobile numbers, or for that matter Paytm and even for paid sex in Goa wasn’t enough to create confusion that Facebook gifted this as a new year gift?
The social media giant Facebook is testing a new feature in India wherein it is prompting new users to enter their names as per their Aadhaar card.
Facebook verified that it is really examining such feature: “We want to make sure people can use the names they’re known by on Facebook, and can easily connect with friends and family. This is a small test where we provide additional language when people sign up for an account to say that using the name on their Aadhaar card makes it easier for friends to recognize them. This is an optional prompt which we are testing. People are not required to enter the name on their Aadhaar card,” said a Facebook spokesperson.
And, don’t be confused with this new feature as Facebook isn’t asking for your Aadhaar number, but just the name as per your Aadhaar card.
And, like always Twitteratis lost their mind and result is something hilarious:
#1. I N D E E D
Facebook probably already knows you more than #Aadhar ever will.

#Raise a bigger security question
If facebook account linked to aadhar is hacked then using the same aadhar info bank account linked to to that aadhar could easily be hacked. Also this will raise a bigger security threat as this info could be used by enemies of the state.https://t.co/En1vl86DUG
