Facebook for Hackers: Anonymous Creates Own Social Network
Anonymous is preparing to launch its own social network.
"Welcome to the Revolution."
In the grandiose style that has become its trademark, the long-running and notorious Anonymous hacking group announced that it will soon launch its own social network, AnonPlus.
In its declaration of intent, posted on anonplus.com, Anonymous writes that AnonPlus will be "a new social network where there is no fear ... of censorship ... of blackout ... nor of holding back."
Anonymous' move to start its own social networking portal comes after Anonymous' Google's+ profile, "Your Anon News," was suspended for violating the terms and conditions of Google's new social networking site.
Google's decision to keep Anonymous at a safe distance is hardly surprising; in the past few months, Anonymous has launched attacks against several top government agencies and websites, including military consultants Booz Allen Hamilton and credit card companies MasterCard, Visa and PayPal.
Although the hacking group has not said when AnonPlus will become operational, Anonymous promises that once it is live, "there will be no more oppression. There will be no more tyranny."
