Are your only “friends” on Facebook or MySpace? Ever wonder, “Would these people miss me if I ever stopped posting?”
If you’ve ever thought about suicide, then maybe you should try Web 2.0 Suicide Machine first.
Web 2.0 Suicide Machine kills all of your on-line social media profiles. You can pull the plug on all your time-sucking “friends” on Facebook and MySpace; and kill all your “followers” on Twitter with one shot.
A person I’m very close too recently committed suicide on Farmville. She sold off all of her Farmville possessions to stake claim in the real world. She said she wanted to use the extra time to reconnect with her real-life friends and family. Hopefully they’ll have time for her.
Facebook is not taking the Suicide Machine lightly. They’ve excommunicated them. But don’t worry; I’ll be the Dr. Kevorkian of the blogosphere. If you want to commit on-line suicide, here is the link: http://suicidemachine.org/
Personally I like having an online presence. I can say whatever I want and have it published right away. I don’t necessarily like the fact my mom, grandma and my three bosses are reading my pages all the time. But it doesn’t bother me enough to commit on-line suicide or even “unfriend” them. If they don’t like what I’m writing about they can click away. And if they ever mention anything to me about it, I will be committing on-line homicide when I erase them from my list.
(Just kidding grandma.)
But if the Facebook/MySpace/Twitter thing has got you down, then go ahead a commit on-line suicide. I dare you.
Don’t worry, you will be missed, but only for a little while, because my bet is you’ll be back. That’s the great thing about a virtual world, you can always resurrect yourself from the dead. Kind of like Jesus, but without the millions “followers.”
