Controversy: Formspring has been the subject of some controversy as of late since users have the choice of being completely anonymous when linking their social networks with their Formspring accounts. This has led to some pretty insensitive, inappropriate questions being asked, with no accountability since the questions are posed from anonymous users. If you choose to use Formspring, keep this potential issue in mind when selecting your level of privacy.
