The hacker group “Anonymous” has threaten to destroy facebook on November 5 with a video posted on Youtube. The hacktivists are plans to destroy the facebook because of the privacy related matters that facebook is infamous for. It claims that facebook has been gathering info about all users and no matter what your privacy settings are they are still being sold to agencies or government.
Anonymous are the hacker group that has a history of hacking big sites like the Sony PlayStation and getting into the site of CIA.
And here’s the video on Youtube by Anonymous.

Here’s what they say on the video.
Attention citizens of the world, We are Anonymous.
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.
Facebook has been selling information to government agencies and giving clandestine access to information security firms so that they can spy on people from all around the world. Some of these so-called whitehat infosec firms are working for authoritarian governments, such as those of Egypt and Syria.
Everything you do on Facebook stays on Facebook regardless of your “privacy” settings, and deleting your account is impossible, even if you “delete” your account, all your personal info stays on Facebook and can be recovered at any time. Changing the privacy settings to make your Facebook account more “private” is also a delusion. Facebook knows more about you than your family.
You cannot hide from the reality in which you, the people of the internet live in facebook is the opposite of the anti-sect cause. You are not safe from them nor from any government. One day you will look back on this and realize what we have done here is right. Think for a while and prepare for the day that will go down in history, November 5th 2011.
We are anonymous
We are legion
We do not forgive
We do not forget
