Hacktivist Group Anonymous Founds Social Networking Site

Hacktivist Group Anonymous Founds Social Networking Site

After having its Google+ profile removed for community standards violations, hacker collective Anonymous has decided to try the social networking thing for itself.

The site, currently running under the temporary name of AnonPlus, is only a splash page at this point, with a message explaining the intent and goals of the site. Primarily, Anonymous wants a site where there will be no fear of "censorship," "blackout," or "holding back." They also mention that the site will be open to anyone that wants to join and not just to members of Anonymous.


"This project is not overnight and will take many of those out there who simply want a better internet," notes the message. "We will not be stopped by those looking to troll or those willing to stop the spreading of the truth."

Earlier this month, the collective made headlines after having launched several online attacks against police union websites in Arizona, claiming the attacks to be in protest of the state's immigration laws. The attacks inevitably led to Anonymous being labeled a "cyber terrorism group" by the Arizona Department of Public safety.

More recently, they claimed credit for an attack against military contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, in which the email addresses and passwords of 90,000 military personnel were compromised, along with the exposure of potentially illegal surveillance projects and political corruption.

Maybe they can build it using that open source social network that some college guys tried to start (Diaspora).

Yeah and I would not join their social network at all and expect any kind of privacy of my information. Good try though.

>> labeled a "cyber terrorism group" by the Arizona Department of Public safety.

Ahhh... Arizona. Where high-school kids running scripts are "terrorists", and police with one hand on their gun asking you for your papers because you look Latino are "public servants".

Sounds kind of like a social network combined with WikiLeaks,

I'd be interested in joining if it weren't for what omegadraco and realneil pointed... I'd be scared there was some ulterior motive in getting signups, or that personal information would be taken advantage of.

Not to mention i'm sure the government is going to flag and keep tabs on the networks members since like 3vi1 pointed out, in some places its labeled as a cyber terrorist group

To all those people out there reading this, who believe in free speech, free thought and all those inalienable rights that are given to humans, not one not a group of humans but all of them. YOU ARE ANONYMOUS. There are those who fight for these things they want to make the world a better place through nonviolent civil disobedience. If you believe that the governments of this world have become corrupt then i urge you join the fight to right the wrongs, to free the unjustly incarcerated, to that the people no longer have to fear their governments because if people fear their governments then there is tyranny and tyranny SHOULD NOT be allowed a foothold in this world if we are to make it a better place.

We are all anonymous. The government does not look out for our well being, or our constitutional rights. For more information on what is really going on visit http://www.whatis-theplan.org
