ESafety believes that social media authentication would not be practical

Australian eSafety Commissioner Julie Inman-Grant has dismissed the practice of verifying users' identities on social media.

Addressing the Senate on Wednesday night, Inman-Grant said such a regime works in banking industry as it has been heavily regulated for many years, specifically to combat it money laundering from illegal activities.

"It would be very difficult, I think, for example, for Facebook redefine - or identify - the 2,7 billion users told him.

While acknowledging that it was not impossible, he said he would create a number of others issues and that the removal of the possibility anonymity or the use of a nickname is unlikely to prevent bullying in cyberspace and other such incidents.

"In adult trolling we often see the following: high self-esteem, sadism and masochism - of course there are many trolls who are not interested in hiding the ID card ", said Inman-Grant.

Similarly, he said, if social media sites implemented a "real name" policy, it would not be effective given the way systems are created.

"I also suspect that there will be huge civil liberties on USA", He added.

"I think there are gradual steps we could take as getting rid of anonymity or even using aliases on the internet completely will be very difficult to achieve."

"I want to be realistic about what is in the realm of the possible. Of course it would be great if everyone had a name tag on Internet, so that they can not do or say things without consequence. ”

What Inman-Grant said is that anonymity hinders them investigations of the department as there is no access to information on the source of the incidents, such as cyberbullying.
