Come November 5th, Facebook will be “destroyed”, if a person known as “Anonymous” has his way, anyway. The hacking group, in a Youtube video as well as through a Twitter account, reveal that orchestrated plan will be named “Operation Facebook”.
The hacking group called out Facebook for its privacy setting that makes it difficult for many users to delete their account once they’re signed up.
“[Facebook] gives users the illusion of (privacy) and hides the details away from them ‘for their own good’ while they then make millions off of you,” they say regarding the reason that they plan to take it down. They allege that Facebook sells information to government agencies once users sign up to the popular social media website and that they “spy on people”.
The hacking group goes on to say that “Facebook knows more about you than your family.”
The group has even tried to recruit members to join the team. “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 hacking group said in the Youtube video.
