They even say in the statement that “everything you do on Facebook is the social network, regardless of privacy settings,” and that “it is impossible to delete the account because the data are stored on Facebook.” “Facebook knows more about you than your family,” says the message.

The group also warns that the day of the attack “will go down in history.”

Facebook would not comment on the threats so far.
