In a bizarre world, one might just want to social network as much as the rest but without wanting to be known, you know, anonymously. Speaking of ‘anonymously’, big time hacker group, who have been making waves the last few months with a full on hackathon on a global scale, hacker group Anonymous, have actually started their very own social networking site they’ve dubbed ‘Anonplus’ – check it here. Wonder where they got that name from? (wink wink)
We’re presuming this is most likely a lash out at the more popular networks and possibly one in particular i.e. Google + (in case you missed that) for having denied them space to maybe host a page or something like that. Although the site doesn’t quite seem ready yet, it might be long before we see the first “anonymous” post on Anonplus. On the plus side, at least they haven’t hacked into the existing networks but simply decided not to get mad but to get even and beat these guys at their own game. Who wouldn’t want to be posting updates etc. anonymously right?
The reason behind the Anonplus social network
Anonymous have stated through their almost up and running social networking site, “This project is not overnight and will take many of those out there who simply want a better internet. We will not be stopped by those looking to troll or those willing to stop the spreading of the truth. One thing I would like to point out that this project is for ALL people not just anonymous, this idea is a presstorm idea and only takes the name anon because of the Anonymity of the social network.”
What’s your take on this dear reader? You think the Anonymous group has a shot at being the next big social network? Let us know.
