AnonPlus: Hacktivist Internet Collective ‘Anonymous’ To Launch Social Network
technology

What do you do when you get banned or kicked out from Google+? You create your own social networking website, at least that’s what hacker group, Anonymous, has decided to do.

Anonymous, the famed online group known for its hacking exploits and Guy Fawkes masks is launching its very own social network called AnonPlus. The group Presstorm reportedly set up the site, and the news comes after Anonymous’ Google+ page and several profiles of its members were removed from Google’s social network. An Anonymous representative explains in a memo:

This is the sad fact of what happens across the internet when you walk to a different beat of the drum. We’ve all heard the stories of activists being banned from FaceBook, Twitter, YouTube, and governments blocking their people from these sites as well through organized black-outs. That day has come to an end. This is one social network that will not tolerate being shut down, censored, or oppressed – even in the face of blackout. We the people have had enough… enough of governments and corporations saying what’s best for us – what’s safe for our minds.

AnonPlus is a work in progress, currently offering nothing more than a splash page linking to a developers forum, and a homepage message promising big things for the future. One thing is certain, this social network will allow members who sign-up to remain anonymous at all times. It’s hard to say what type of services will be offered, although it’s safe to say that photo-tagging and Farmville probably won’t be involved.
