How would you feel if you had to use your real name on social media? Well China says you do. It passed a law mandating users of internet based communication services to use their real names.

Those already on sites will have limited access until they go through the same identification process.

New developments continue to happen and keep people talking. Yesterday, the autopsy results were release, Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr came to Missouri, and CNN’s interview with Jesse Williams on Michael Brown went viral.
