Re: Anonymous on Facebook

"It's interesting how people think that Facebook does not know who you are just because you don't give them your real name. Between your activity, the activity of your friends, the info you friends have on you (email and phone) Facebook is able to build out a pretty solid profile on you. Facebook knows who you are. They know who you are even if you don't use Facebook so not hard to connect you to an account, even if not under your own name."

The only real way to connect to FB and stay anonymous is to use virtual machine on a dynamically assigned IP which you refresh before and after connecting or connect through a private proxy or VPN. Don't do any other surfing from that browser just for FB only. This is how the spammers and scammers do it to try and avoid their accounts getting flagged.
