Thats up to you. I dont think the details of eexactly how that will work have been disclosed yet, but regardless, thats up to you. 

 

Its a common security practice to reveal as little personal info as possible with strangers met over online interactions though.

I love your name. Wear it with pride. It's your badge of honor. Don't change for anyone. Follow your heart.

its never a good thing to give out your personal info to the public. Your name is personal info. Why dont you think people in here doesnt have user name like, John smith, Joe Mike, David Lee, Chris Brown, ect.

If we can just use our first name I'll be ok with it. Sadly I don't think it will work like that

You're personal information will only be displayed to the people you allow. Everyone else will see your PSN tag. I don't have an exact source, but I think this was address in February at the PS4 reveal.
