'Anonymous' to start social network It appears that the hacktivist group Anonymous has been kicked from Google+, along with the group having lost their Gmail and other Google accounts.
The account, "Your Anon News" was taken down for not violating "Community Standards."

Says the group:

What we didn't know at the time is that we were just one of a [handful] of Anonymous accounts that was silenced."


Additionally, the group is preparing its own social network, dubbed AnonPlus:

Not only did a few people organized an Operation [against] Google+, but we have started to build our own Social Network.... Welcome to AnonPlus.

AnonPlus was meant to [thwart] government censorship - so that in the case of a government blackout - the people can still be heard.

This social network will also incorporate and facilitate an open source educational environment...allow open communication of ideas - and is essentially a cyber-anarchy formatted environment...allow open exchange of currency via alternative currency....This social network is essentially: The [activists'] dashboard.
