An anonymous social network in the making?

Spurred by blocked accounts of Anonymous members and activists on various popular social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and (recently) Google+, a group apparently loosely affiliated with Anonymous has had enough and has decided to create a social network “where there is no fear… of censorship… of blackout… nor of holding back.”

Time will tell if and how their plan will be realized. The plan was announced on presstorm, and so far they have a name (“Anon+”), a domain (anonplus.com) and a link to a forum (anonplus.presstorm.com) where, among other things, people can take part of a discussion about what this “revolutionary social network” should be like.

It seems pretty likely that Anon+ will be constructed with privacy and anonymity in mind and that it will not require members to share any information with anyone unless they explicitly want to. I also think it is safe to say that it will not require or encourage users to use their real names.

“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,” it is explained on the site. “Soon the actual site will go up and you can begin to interact with it.”
