"Hacktivists" Use Facebook Profiles for Mock Dating Website

 

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 peopleĀ“s information violates our terms. We have taken, and will continue to take, aggressive legal action against organizations that violate these terms."
