Today, The New York Times reported that Facebook could be looking to take the twinge at anonymous social networking with the new app launching sometime in the future. The team led by the Facebook Product Manager Josh Miller, it appears that they are still working out the crimps, but the main idea behind it is to have the Facebook users discuss the topics which they don’t want people associating with their real identities and allow the users to select whatever the username they want.

Generally, there will be lot of questions left open for now, like how, if at all Facebook plans to integrate this with, then Facebook and other details like will anonymous picture sharing will be included or not?. Will the app will be similar to the Facebook messenger app or any other social message board?Of course, when the anonymous concept comes, spammers comes in droves, so it will be interesting to see how this be handled.
