But given that Facebook is also entering the frictionless currency business, via Facebook credits, I expect they will raise the authentication ante too. You already need to provide either a credit card number or a cell phone number in order to build and distribute an app on the Facebook Platform; I predict that before long you’ll have to do the same just to have a Facebook ID. Just wait.
Meanwhile, I’m down one fake Facebook pseudo identity. Guess it’s time to cook up another one.
