I use my real name, but I noticed that Facebook added an "alternative name" feature in account settings under "change name", so I put my nickname there. Honestly, it's just as "real" - more people know me under that name, including at work.
On LinkedIn I stuffed it into the last name. Works fine and people can look me up under it (and I come up for 'furry', too).
My furry name and my real name are pretty much the same thing.
I technically have a Facebook account, from the time when it was open only to college students. I used it maybe a maximum of five times. It's currently deactivated, but I log on if I want to see something for which the site makes me log in, after which I deactivate it again.
Facebook is just too much for me to handle. Too much info.
if you don't want to bother with having to keep deactivating facebook, you can just delete your profile entirely:
i go by my real name on facebook but i post furry stuff anyway because everyone on my friends list knows i'm a furry anyway. i have no plans on adding employers or teachers or the like because i've read stories about this kind of thing that don't end well. :S
I once got a very good job offer due to my FaceBook account. True story.
I don't think I would've gotten it if I was "Cross Affliction" or "Cruci Fox" or whatever.
