I used to use my real name on the Internet: Usenet, FidoNet, blogging, FB, Twitter, G+, etc.
I worked on reducing my digital footprint, and now searching my name on the web doesn't return much.
Even my LinkedIn profile is not under my legal name, but people who know me IRL immediately know it's me.
It's not about hiding, it's about privacy.
Likewise, I do shut and lock the stall door when I go to the washroom: you know what I'm doing, I know you know, but I'd rather keep it private.
