Hacking group Anonymous starting its own social network after being blocked by Google+

The online group Anonymous which has gained attention in the last year with hacker attacks on PayPal, Visa, Amazon, Bank of America, and various world governments is now stating its own social network after being kicked off the new Google+ social site. Their account was suspended for violating Google's community standards with its posts. Their Gmail account has also been shut down.

Their new social networking site will be called AnonPlus and is described as "a social network where there is no fear of censorship, of blackout, nor of holding back." Anonymous said AnonPlus is intended as a platform "simply to dispense info". Anonymous says the site will be open to everyone when it goes live and is currently being worked on by 18 developers. Anonymous also has an active Twitter presence with its @YourAnonNews account, which has more than 19,000 followers.
