Original post has advertisorial content. There's something ironic about a supposed "online privacy tips" site linking - vigorously - off of facebook

The CIA, FBI, and NSA control many of the exit nodes, so just be aware.

Yes and no.

Not absolutely in any circumstance, but to degrees yes.

You people need to quit the black and white thinking. The question is to what extent it is reasonably possible.

Here are my tips, take them or ignore them if you will.

For social media, absolutely make some under you real name, but do nothing with them. Let them collect dust for years as something you can point to when asked.

If you want to have fun on social media, make fake accounts using disposable emails and do whatever you want. Bans mean nothing to a troll account.

Do not link accounts. Do not participate in any data mining.

Always use ad blockers, use more than one browser, never make a browser account for "convenience".

Limit your actual online purchases with credit cards to an email account that has 0 social media presence.

Never dox yourself.
