Digital artists Paolo Cirio and Alessandro Ludovico used Facebook profiles to create a mock dating website called "Lovely-Faces.com".
The duo says that Facebook asked them to stop scraping the billion-dollar website. The "hacktivists", however, say their activities are legal, as they are only using publicly available information.
Facebook is of the opinion that "scraping people´s information violates our terms. We have taken, and will continue to take, aggressive legal action against organizations that violate these terms."
