All of these and Google are also moving towards phone
'auth' (aka: database of you), and 'real name' government
picture ID policies. Don't expect your accounts to be
grandfathered, Facebook is already locking longstanding
accounts out that do not provide these.

It would seem there is now good oppurtunity for people
to spin up alternative projects to the big 4 that would
take a nice post-snowden post-big-data approach
to respecting people and their right to privacy, etc.
A good strong no bullshit stance on that could be
quite profitable in its own right when compared to
the abysmal big 4. It won't be free, but it could be
anon... $25/year cash in the mail x 1M users = $$$.
Who's in?
