http://edition.cnn.com/2013/03/16/opinion/schneier-internet-surveillance/index.html?c&page=1 I've been saying this for a while now. It doesn't matter if you use your real name online, or if you refuse to use google, or anything really. There is no such thing as anonymity or privacy. You could probably be tracked through the internet even if you don't even use the internet. If the Government, or anybody really, wants to track you, they can. If I look real hard for something comforting in all of this, the only thing I can come up with is maybe that I haven't given anybody a reason to track me (that I know of).
