Hacker Group Anonymous’ Leadership Disowns “Operation Facebook,” Only “Some Anons” Are Involved

According to a tweet from the AnonOps Twitter feed eight hours ago, “Operation Facebook” was only organized by some members of Anonymous:

#OpFacebook is being organised by some Anons. This does not necessarily mean that all of #Anonymous agrees with it.

Another tweet from a few hours prior proclaims:

TO PRESS: MEDIAS OF THE WORLD… STOP LYING! #OpFacebook is just ANOTHER FAKE! WE DONT “KILL” THE MESSENGER. THAT’S NOT OUR STYLE #Anonymous

If the AnonOps Twitter feed is in fact run by the leaders of Anonymous, then this means that Operation Facebook is not actually a fake, but instead an operation created by a splinter group within Anonymous.

Gizmodo pulled a quote from a source on an Anonymous IRC chat board, which helps clarify how “ops” are created:

“Anonymous is a mindset not a group. Mindsets do not have leaders. With any given operation there are always some who agree and some who disagree. With opFaceBook specifically there are those that agree and those that disagree. Annoymous allows each person individually to vote on each operation, a yes vote means they participate, a no vote means they do not. Anyone is allowed to create an op and if others vote yes it will get traction and something may be accomplished.”
