The problem with fake accounts is a lot of consistency is needed. All social networks require an email address to sign up with, and a lot of email networks have social network plugins that are going to get your browser to fetch stuff from their servers.
'hiding' can still be done but it's not as simple as it once was, filling in sign up forms with fake details.
All a bit OT anyway, I see Google just trying to catalyse its social network.
