    Ooooo

    The hacktivist collective, who recently replaced the Syrian Ministry of Defence website with one of its own, claims that, come bonfire night (as the day is celebrated in the UK), the "medium of communication you all so dearly adore will be destroyed". It also goes on to say that other hackers should "join the cause and kill Facebook for the sake of your own privacy.

    Should be interesting :)

    The Youtube video

    The only thing I care less about than Anonymous is Facebook.

    Kill Facebook? As long as people start talking to each other again.

    Every girl I ever kissed I was thinking of a pro footballer.

    Does it make a difference if Facebook are aware of it, is there anything more they can do to protect themselves?

    I don't know the first thing about hacking, but it seems that anonymous are gonna be more skilled at 'Killing' Facebook, than the Facebook staff will be at defending it(?)

    This would be awesome if pulled off!
    I so hope it happens but by telling the world about it now is kind of shooting themselves in the foot is it not?

    Sounds good to me. I don't actually use Facebook and this is starting to mark you out as a weirdo. I would rather people figuring out I am weirdo took a little more effort.

    Users shouldn't be afraid of their website. The website should be afraid of it's users.

    People seem unable to comprehend the fact I don't have a facebook account.

    I think the Spy agencies will be annoyed at them for trying to ruin their new toy.

    The only thing I'd miss on the internet is Google.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

  • Deleted user 10 August 2011 13:34:20
    That video is too cringeworthy.

    I do love the irony that is the average anti-facebook internet warrior arguing that it has ruined real life social interaction. The fuck do they know about real social interaction.

    Same here! When I tell them they seem to think it's some kind of personal insult!

    Yep - we're the lepers of the bunch now!

    I don't Tweeter or MyFace or Farcebook or any of that stuff. EG is probably as advanced as I get in terms of social interaction.
