Creating Facebook Public Profiles Now Requires A Digital Signature

Following a massive large brand land grab by Facebook users, the site has begun requiring electronic signatures in order to create a Public Profile Page. The added step could have been added for a number of reasons, but given all the changes Facebook has made to the public profiles, the increased security measures are just another aspect of growing concerns Facebook may have regarding the more integrated way in which Public Profiles now work.

When you go to create a new Public Profile page, you’ll now be required to provide an electronic signature in order to complete the setup process (as pictured below). I imagine that this has been added as another level of security that preserves the privacy settings Facebook has been able to provide to users on its network.
