Facebook will be “destroyed”, A group of hackers known as Anonymous has vowed . The hacking group, in a Youtube video as well as through a Twitter account, revealed about its masterminded  plan "Operation Facebook”.

Facebook was started in 2004 and has more than 750 million users worldwide. Its 27-year-old CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, is thought to be worth £8.3 billion ($13.5 billion) according to Forbes.And while its popularity appears to be increasing, many questions remain over privacy issues - there are fears that the information uploaded by users will be passed on to other sources.The hacking group called out Facebook for its privacy setting that makes it difficult for many users to delete their account once they’re signed up.

The hacking group said in the youtube video that “Facebook knows more about you than your family.
Facebook gives users the illusion of (privacy) and hides the details away from them ‘for their own good’ while they then make millions off of you,” they say regarding the reason that they plan to take it down. They allege that Facebook sells information to government agencies once users sign up to the popular social media website and that they “spy on people”.

The group has even tried to recruit members to join the team. “If you are a willing hacktivist or a guy who just wants to protect the freedom of information then join the cause and kill Facebook for the sake of your own privacy,” the hacking group said in the Youtube video.
