Facebook will DIE on November 5th. You have been warned.

10 August 2011

Bitterwallet - Facebook logo As per usual, there’ll be fireworks on November 5th. But this year, they’ll be online and they’ll be GLOBAL. That’s if the promise made by shady hacking group Anonymous comes true, for they have declared that Guy Fawkes Day will be the day that they DESTROY FACEBOOK.

Yes, the planet’s biggest social network is fixed firmly in the sights of Anonymous and they reckon they’re going to blow it sky high while we’re out staring at bonfires and burning our hands on sparklers.

Anonymous say that Facebook “gives users the illusion of (privacy) and hides the details away from them "for their own good" while they then make millions off of you.” For those reasons, it has to end, and Anonymous believe that we’ll all thank them for it in the future.

Put it in your diaries and start saving the 36,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 pictures that you’ve uploaded to your Facebook account before they’re gone for good. KABLOOM!

Elsewhere, Facebook have launched a standalone messaging app thingy (although only in the US for now) which will probably be MASSIVE in the very near future. Shame you've only got about three months to enjoy it. KABLOOM!

    I find this really surprising. Not the hacking, but the planning to do it on a British commemorative day. Maybe the rest of the world will learn about our culture, and how we, you know, burn catholics.

    Given that Anonymous use the stylised mask from V for Vendetta its not surprising they plan something big for November the 5th given the significance in the film and probably less consideration towards Guy and his merry band of conspirators...

    Oh dear. Next you'll be telling us that XYZ has been razed and that the houses of parliament are under attack. Behave. You're as bad as everyone else. And I quote Anonops on Twitter.... anonops AnonOps TO PRESS: MEDIAS OF THE WORLD... STOP LYING! #OpFacebook is just ANOTHER FAKE! WE DONT "KILL" THE MESSENGER. THAT'S NOT OUR STYLE #Anonymous

    How to get Facebook Messenger in the UK or any other country that isn't the US: 1. Download this app: https://market.android.com/details?id=ch.racic.android.marketenabler 2. Use the app to set your SIM to TMobile[US] 3. Search for Facebook Messenger on the Market using your phone. 4. Install Facebook Messenger.

    Been using it for a few hours on my iPhone. I think it's quite good. Giving you the option to send a message to your phone contacts, in a text message that they can reply to. Whole Facebook message inbox from website/mobile application. Photo feature doesn't work how I expected, but it's good.

    My phone also gives "the option to send a message to your phone contacts, in a text message that they can reply to", although I bought mine in 1997.
