The subject of anonymity on the web has come up time and time again; confusing a lot of AA and NA members on what is “right” and what is “wrong” in sharing recovery on the web. The articles below give a lot of information from the respective programs. I agree and disagree with a lot of it, but still try to maintain myself in following the guidelines.
My Facebook profile is an anonymous ID, and most of my friends list are composed of folks in recovery. I maintain an anonymous web site for recovery with anonymous user names. If you wish to share recovery with anonymity, please join us there.

I can only advise that you remember that Facebook IS an open and public domain no matter HOW you set your privacy levels. Be careful of what you “say” and how you might say it.
