UPDATE - I received this response from Newsy.com.
I read your post about Anonymous hackers targeting Facebook and I am sad to hear that the date they chose fell on your anniversary. I also think it is important to take the threat seriously but as this Newsy video points out they may not be able to pull it off.
I found it very interesting that they tweeted this was just a group of people in the organization and not the whole organization acting as one.
(Note from Nick -- Yes, I think that's another example that Anonymous may not be the unified global entity that some people claim it to be, but rather a bunch of individual or smaller groups with their own agendas.)
I also think it is important to note that the hacker group has failed to take down giants in the past like Amazon so I am not sure if they will be really able to take out the Internet king like Facebook.
I was hoping you would embed the video with your post. I think it would compliment it well as you documented much of the history of the hacking group while the video gives some background on the current situation.
(Note from Nick - Done. The embedded video is below. Thanks for sharing.)
