Wants to employ you in it as well.

The Internet will be relieved of the criminally pointless status updates for one (?) day if Anonymous succeeds in its latest plan to bring down Facebook. They have a date for the showdown as well: Jan 28.

According to a new video posted by the popular hacker group, the process will be initiated from 12 am on Jan 28, and calls to whoever supports their cause (we are not sure how being against SOPA has anything to do with Facebook) to download a software and actually take part in the attack.

“Do not fear,” the anonymous narrator says. “There is no way you can get caught. They cannot take down that large of a group.”

Facebook received a similar threat in November last year but nothing came to be.
