Openbook is Anonymous' answer to Facebook.
The problem was the mass surveillance.
The problem was the mass hysteria.
The problem was the algorithmic newsfeed.
The problem was that everything you said was tied to your irl identity.
The problem was the Ad Hominem Fallacy.
Openbook is our solution.

#Openbook101💬 is where we explain how to use Openbook, and how to get the most out of your time here.
Openbook is not a replacement for Facebook. It is something completely different. However, we do recommend getting off of Facebook, and using Openbook, instead... because of those differences.
Openbook was made to allow users to circumvent the mass culture of social media.
Openbook was made to allow technological laymen to more easily circumvent the mass surveillance of the internet.
Openbook was made to help detox your mind from your mind prisons, to grow beyond the narrow idea of who you are, and open your mind to who you could be. And to allow us to communicate more directly by stripping the message of the messenger.

Hashtags were invented to help us better categorize information. They are also used to rally around a certain topic, or issue, and in the best case scenario have the potential to inspire people toward thoughtful, constructive mass action.

Hashtags can only contain letters, numbers, and underscores. They cannot contain spaces.
Hashtags must be separated by spaces! If you cram a string of hashtags together without spaces between them, they're hard to read, and on Openbook only the first hashtag will be turned into a link (in order to to discourage such madness).
Hashtags usually start with a letter, although they CAN start with a number, but ONLY if they ALSO include letters. This allows the original use of the "#" symbol to represent numbers without causing conflict with the newer use of # to represent hashtags. For example, numbers such as #1, or the meaning of life #42, will not turn into hashtag links or generate wiki articles.
Hashtags cannot have a space anywhere inside the hashtag, since a space marks the end of a hashtag. However, a hashtag can contain multiple words, as long as there are no spaces between the words. To make the hashtag more readable, capitalize each word in it. For instance, you can write @OpenbookHistory💬 instead of @openbookhistory💬, even though these both link to the same hashtag. You can also use an underscore in a hashtag, although this is uncommon.
If you're into the history of hashtags check out @HashtagHistory💬.

The purpose of Openbook is to create a platform that can channel the collective voice of humanity, shielded by anonymity, and propagated through multiplicity and decentralization, to allow an ongoing unstoppable flow of truth.
Of course, this truth will always come along with the lies, the lulz, the trolls, and the psy-ops of the dark forces, but this is the mission of Openbook: to #keepthep0rtalsopen💬, and maintain the openness that the Internet originally introduced to humanity before "skynet" started to funnel humanity into the mind prison upheld by the combination of identity-driven social media and government-sponsored totalitarian surveillance programs.
