    "Anonymous" hacker group posts Youtube video threatening to destroy Facebook

    "Your medium of communication you all so dearly adore will be destroyed," a speaker representing the hacktivist group Anonymous says in a YouTube video posted July 16 that rapidly gained wider exposure today.

    Turns out that these boys are regular killjoys as their hit is timed to coincide with Guy Fawkes Day, which is celebrated in Britain to commemorate the Gunpowder Plot in which Fawkes and his fellow co-conspirators attempted unsuccessfully to blow the British House of Lords to smithereens in 1605.

    But Anonymous is on a mission. In recent months, the loosely-organized group has gone after websites operated by the likes of PayPal, Master Card, Visa and the Church of Scientology.

    So what was Facebook's sin to deserve such an explosive finale? To be sure, Facebook doesn't have a great record when it comes to privacy protection but Anonymous now claims that the company is guilty of "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." No official reaction yet from Facebook.

    What a bunch of BS. Like this is ever going to happen.

    In the past there has been someone making posts about FB is going to start charging for their services.

    This was found out to be the activities of a disgruntled former employee with an axe to grind.

    Not sure if this is related though.

    I have a facebook account and I have photos. I have restricted my account to where only my friends can see them. I police in a relatively small area and most everyone here knows me anyway. As far as content I do not post anything out of the ordinary that I would not tell anyone face to face. I just keep it straight and so far no problems. Even my Deputy Chief has one.

    I had one for a few years. It was okay for a while but ended up causing more pains in the ass than anything. I deleted it out of my life and haven't looked back. I agree that the 50 "friends" don't need to know your daily status.
