Anonymous says its starting its own social network

John Moe Jul 18, 2011

Well, good luck with that. AnonPlus will, we are told, be a rival to Google+ and Facebook but without any censorship and without any need to reveal your actual identity. The idea apparently came about after several Anonymous members were banned from Google+, thus peeving the hackers, who had this to say:

What they didn’t know at the time is that they were just one of a handfull of Anonymous accounts that were silenced. This is the sad fact that happens across the internet when you march to a different beat of the drum. We’ve all heard the stories of activists being banned from FaceBook, Twitter, and Governments blocking their people from these sites as well through organized black outs. That day has came to an end. Not only did a few people organized an Operation against Google+, but we have started to build our own Social Network.

Nothing is built at http://anonplus.com/ beyond a black background and some sophomoric writing about how awesomely powerful the writers are.
