"VIrtual ID" let's you log into Gov/Bank with your FB/google. What Could Go Wrong?
[link to www.independent.co.uk]

"The Government will announce details this month of a controversial national identity scheme which will allow people to use their mobile phones and social media profiles as official identification documents for accessing public services.

People wishing to apply for services ranging from tax credits to fishing licences and passports will be asked to choose from a list of familiar online log-ins, including those they already use on social media sites, banks, and large retailers such as supermarkets, to prove their identity.

Once they have logged in correctly by computer or mobile phone, the site will send a message to the government agency authenticating that user’s identity.

The Cabinet Office is understood to have held discussions with the Post Office, high street banks, mobile phone companies and technology giants ranging from Facebook and Microsoft to Google, PayPal and BT.

Ministers are anxious that the identity programme is not denounced as a “Big Brother” national ID card by the back door, which is why data will not be kept centrally by any government department."


this is insane. that's all i can say about that.
soon we will be voting with our facebooks.

Absurd! The most absurd thing though, is that most people will see nothing about this as questionable.

One for the afternoon crowd. I doubt too many people here would log onto the IRS.gov site with their facebook ID!
