Anonymous or someone claiming to be part of Anonymous has set up a new Twitter account and also released a video on YouTube, and are claiming that they will bring down the world’s largest social network on the 5th of November.
They are calling it ‘Operation Facebook’ and Anonymous have released a statement, which criticises Facebook’s privacy, something which has come under criticism quite a lot in the past, you can see part of the statement below.
We wish to get your attention, hoping you heed the warnings as follows:
Your medium of communication you all so dearly adore will be destroyed. If you are a willing hacktivist or a guy who just wants to protect the freedom of information then join the cause and kill facebook for the sake of your own privacy.
The date of November the 5th is significant, because it is the date in 1605 when Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the House of Lords here in the UK, and Anonymous portray themselves as a modern day Guy Fawkes.
