Anonymous threatens to destroy Facebook on 5 November 2011

Anonymous, a group of hackers, has posted a warning on YouTube that it intends “destroying” Facebook on 5 November 2011. The voice in the video speaks about Facebook’s privacy practices and how it apparently sells personal information to government agencies. The date, of course, is associated with sedition and was most recently popularized by the film, V for Vendetta.

Whether Facebook engages in the practices Anonymous accuses it of (some of the alleged practices are pretty well-known and often commented on), it will be interesting to see whether Anonymous takes action against Facebook on 5 November and what impact such an attack will have.
