don’t worry about FB.  It will be fine!  I have a TON of pics too.

@HappilyEverAfter54: you can actually pull all of your photos off your facebook account through shutterfly.

I’m assuming it’s a hoax – BUT – go to account settings.  At the bottom of the General tab, under “Language”, there’s an option to download a copy of your Facebook data.  Can’t hurt to do it I guess.  Good luck!

ETA: I mean literally UNDER Language – don’t click on Language. 🙂

I’m a web developer.

We back up EVERYTHING! All our servers automatically run full back-ups weekly and incremental back-ups nightly.

I work for a much smaller and less tech-savvy company than Facebook (I work for a hospital). Any company that has a “web department” will do at a minimum the backups my company does.

Don’t worry, the worst that can happen is a couple hours down-time where you won’t be able to access the site.

More likely, it will just be a “denial of service” attack that may or may not slow things down for a couple hours.

Anonymous is a group that spun off from 4chan and it likes to cause internet drama and antagonize groups it believes are corrupt/manipulative/generally bad  (in 2008 they went after Scientology), not to say they couldn’t do some damage but I think it’s as much about generating a buzz as anything else.

ETA I teach in a high school and a lot of my students talk about 4chan an Anonymous.

I thought they were going after Mexican drug cartels instead? I literally just read a CNN article about it this am.
