Hacker group ‘Anonymous’ has vowed to kill the social networking site, Facebook, citing privacy concern and security violation of user information.
The day (November 5th, 2011) is celebrated as Guy Fawkes Day in Britain as a commemoration of the Gunpowder Plot in which Fawkes placed explosives in the House of Lords in 1605.
The speaker in the video, invites people to join the cause and kill Facebook for the sake of protecting their own privacy.
“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 speaker added.
Mentioning privacy concerns and Facebook’s ability to store and sell personal information about its users, the group said, “Everything you do on Facebook stays on Facebook regardless of your ‘privacy’ settings, and deleting your account is impossible.”
“Facebook has been selling information to government agencies and giving clandestine access to information security firms so that they can spy on people from around the world,” ‘Anonymous’ said.
