Do you believe that it is possible  to shut down Facebook with a cyber attack on 5th November 2012, which is not  even organised in a proper way ? Few activists on internet threatened to shut  down Zynga and Facebook, after the gaming giant announced it was laying off  five per cent of its work force.
.
Most obvious like other big fake claims, this  claim is also not from the activist working as Anonymous  Genuinely. Generally I am strong supporter of Anonymous or Wikileaks  but the Idea behind Anonymous have lots of Pro and Con.
.
I ask some Anonymous (who are actually  managing major operations) to comment about the attack scheduled on  5th November by some unknown anonymous group, and their reply was simply —  “FAKE” .
.
Facebook , Twitter and  other social media sites and News organisations are giving you  platform for spreading information, they are your voice with an amplifier.  Do you think you can use your MIC after unplugging is ? If yes, then  think again…

Message for individual behind Facebook  attack: Dude, Do you have any idea that, how you will post a  successful  facebook hack status on your Anonymous facebook page (having  millions of fans)  after shutting down Facebook ? LOL , its same like  “Cutting off the branch  you’re sitting on“.
.
The concept of being anonymous makes people  more daring, being nameless can bring people together, and because there is  such  a large following their protests can often make a big impact. Some of them  are  doing extraordinary job in this fight against corruption and Injustice ,  but on  the other hand we have n00bs also  who continuously using Anonymous banner  for personal benefit and Discredit the Collective Name – ‘Anonymous‘.
.
Two weeks before we have seen a fake  claim by @FawkesSecurity posted a threat to bomb a government building by  Anonymous, then yesterday we have seen a Ransomware  malware attacking computers for ransom money in the name of Anonymous. Its  already clear to everyone that Anonymous does not condone violence in any way  and they are involved in only peaceful protest and internet protest.
.
Hacking Random sites and Leaking documents and  Details of innocent people of the World was never the part of this Internet  Protest.
.
I would like to request all Anonymous Members  and Supporters to concentrate on what we all really can do together,  not on what you alone can (a fake claim, even you don’t have an idea that how  its possible) do with the name of Anonymous. Do you have an Idea ? Share it on  IRC’s with others, discuss and then come out with an organized way  !
