The hacktivist group Anonymous has been kicked off Google+ and in response, the group is looking to build its own social network called AnonPlus
According to a group's blog post
, Anonymous got banned from Google+ due to some of its content.
"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," the group wrote on its blog.
In response, the group is building its own social network called AnonPlus.
"Not only did a few people organized an Operation ageist Google+, but we have started to build our own Social Network," the group added. "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."
"This lil info dump of a site is here simply to dispence info, soon the actual site will go up and you can begin to interact with it," Anonymous said on the 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."
