When dealing with web companies, there are two types of people. There are the ones who tell you real names, and the ones who don’t. There is a battle going on between which one should dominate the web, and we have some information to help you decide.

This simplification for the reality of web seems too simple, but it’s how we represent ourselves online that defines our core belied between transparency and anonymity. You have the choice to present your real self online and take credit and consequences for your action, or you let your actions speak for you and maintain your privacy.

When speaking between the two subjects two people always come to mind, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and 4Chan founder Chris “Moot” Poole, these are the two candidates in the debate.

Mark Zuckerberg is all about people using the Internet to make real connections and get their true self out there, while Chris Poole supports the side of letting creativity and activism flow while keeping safe and anonymous.

From the good people at the real-time conversation company Namesake, we get a creative infographic that delegates between the two sides and gives support and downfalls for both sides. Each side has their own philosophy about the issue and causes people to stop and think.

Are you a supporter of keeping your information private, or do you want to take credit for your work?
