Aadhaar card information will be given on Facebook too!
To stop fake accounts and record their presence in the virtual world, the world’s leading social media platform Facebook has also taken a step in the same way as the Indian government. Facebook has now started testing the use of the ‘base’ required to get banks, mobile connections etc.

Only a small number of people using Facebook on mobile are seeing this message right now. While it is a matter of fact that Facebook users are not seeking information from the Aadhaar card under this test program, it is only saying that the new joining users should use the name written on their Aadhaar card.
This step would not raise any issue related to the identity of the Aadhaar card nor misuse of the information of the Aadhaar card. But seeking the name associated with Aadhaar card, there is definitely an initiative that encourages users joining this platform to come face to face with real identity.
