Anonymous vows to 'destroy' Facebook on Nov5

In a message posted on video-sharing site YouTube, Anonymous said people who want to protect the freedom of information should "join the cause and kill facebook for the sake of your own privacy."

It said everything users do "stays" on Facebook, regardless of their privacy settings, adding deleting one's account is "impossible."
