After getting booted from Google+, Anonymous announces its own social network
Responding to Google's ban of +YourAnonNews on new social network Google+, "hacktivist" group Anonymous and Presstorm Media began discussing the possibility of a new social network called AnonPlus (or Anon+).
"This project is not overnight and will take many of those out there who simply want a better internet," the site's landing page says. "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."
Over the weekend, Anonymous and Presstorm put up anonplus.com along with the initial announcement that the project's developer teams will be announced soon. The initial Java team consists of 17 developers, and the "Website/Tools" team adds two more. More teams will be announced as the project is fleshed out.
Mockups of the site's design are already being discussed on the anonplus discussion forums with a couple of examples showing a clear inspiration from the likes of Google+ and Twitter.
