The website Glassdoor has been around for a while, and is all about people looking into companies before working for them. It’s built by anonymous reviews about the company, so that they can be as honest as possible. It’s been plagued over the years by companies that push employees to give 5 star reviews to counter negative reviews, and so forth. Over time, employers also tried to get real names to retaliate against negative reviews. Glassdoor recently acquired a professional networking app, trying to follow-on the success of LinkedIn, but it requires real name information. They have also started auto filling information into user accounts whenever possible. Guess what people are concerned about? Yep, anonymity just isn’t what it used to be. Whatever goes on the Internet, can be tied back to you.

Anonymous review site Glassdoor now consults public sources to identify users.
