Anonymous vows to take down Facebook

The group claims that Facebook has been providing information to governments, and describes it as 'the opposite of the Antisec cause'.
"Facebook has been 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," says the group in an associated YouTube video.
"Some of these so-called whitehat infosec firms are working for authoritarian governments, such as those of Egypt and Syria."
"Everything you do on Facebook stays on Facebook regardless of your 'privacy' settings, and deleting your account is impossible, even if you "delete" your account, all your personal info stays on Facebook and can be recovered at any time," it says.
"Changing the privacy settings to make your Facebook account more 'private' is also a delusion. Facebook knows more about you than your family."

Since Facebook has the largest database of private info. on U.S. citizens, a hacker like Anonymous could actually succeed in outing it and spreading it all over the Internet, doing gigantic harm! Why oh why didn't you listen a long time ago and flee the horrible ZuckerBeast? Now the CIA, FBI and who knows what other sinister org. knows all about you.

Boycott Facebook - Flee the ZuckerBeast!

The Facebook'd treason & plot.

I see no reason when the facebook'd treason should ever be forgot.
