This unusual activity is actually a form of spamming and has been creating a lot of talks in and out of the said social networking site.
Spam is the use of electronic messaging systems (including most broadcast media, digital delivery systems) to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately. (taken from Wikipedia)
Given these facts, Facebook security group has been trying to resolve this issue and explained that the security of their users are their top priorities. But given these facts, what could be the news behind this?
Operation Facebook: November 5
It has been speculated that a group called "Anonymous" will take down the said social networking site. But a few weeks later the group took back their threat and told that it was just a joke. Even though, few people have waited for the said date and it seems nothing actually happened.
A Few More Weeks Later
November 15, the giant social networking site has been spammed with lots of inappropriate photos, some of which are from celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber. Many users have been reported to take their accounts down due to this malicious spamming.
Up to now, Facebook hasn't publicize the reason behind this issue. Due to this, speculation over the web has connected the November 5 threat to this actions. Last week, a group who claims to be allied with Anonymous posted a video that it had created a virus called "Fawkes" virus, a WORM that would attack Facebook.
The video claims the worm can be controlled remotely and that once it's fully understood it "will use this to its advantage against corruption."
From what I can see, it seems that Anonymous made a mistake on their announcement. They said that the fifth of November is the date to kill Facebook, unfortunately, it seems to be that this is the start of 'killing' Facebook.
