Anonymous Vows Destruction of Facebook on Guy Fawkes Day | ZDNet


 

 

Summary: Notorious online collective Anonymous (”hacktivists”) have vowed to destroy Facebook this November 5. Is Google Plus partly to blame?

The notorious, indefinite online collective Anonymous (often called “hacktivists”) has drawn a parallel between Facebook and totalitarian governments, vowing to “destroy” the Wal-Mart of social networks on November 5.

UPDATE: It now seems like “Operation Facebook” is not wholly supported by Anonymous and reports are in conflict; some do and some don’t. For the new developments, read Anonymous does not support killing Facebook on November 5. /UPDATE

According to their press release on YouTube and the transcript on Village Voice, Anonymous plans to “kill Facebook,” the “medium of communication we all so dearly adore.”
