When I've asked people about their choice to use fictional names on social media, majority cite their job search as the reasoning behind staying hidden. If you don't use your real name, the chances of being found and judged for your personal life by possible employers minimizes. But if you use a fictional name, then employers can't find out how passionate you are about your future career and about your life!
