Web 2.0 Suicide Machine

A lot has been made of recent comments by Marc Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, that privacy is dead. Without wanting to go into that discussion, fact is that a whole lot more personal information is now available and easily accessable.

Twitter shows you what someone has had for breakfast, Foursquare tells you who’s the mayor of the local Starbucks and Facebook is a constant reminder of your friends’ drunken shenanigans. But why share all this information?

Many people have been sharing this information for years without ever stopping to think how this could impact them. Your tweet informing your loyal followers about an upcoming holiday and Google Maps make a potent tool in the arsenal of any self respecting burglar. Facebook and MySpace are known to have been used by peadophiles to try and pick up kids.

And did you ever stop to think why on god’s green earth it makes sense to accept that friend request from someone you have never met or spoken to before, other than inflating your number of ‘friends’ and thus self importance?

For all the people who have woken up, smelled the coffee and didn’t like the scent of their online profile there now is the Web 2.0 Suicide Machine. Fed up with feeding your inane bullshit to your following of spammers, scammers and other members of the People’s Republic of Twitter? No longer feel the need to look cool by posting a picture of yourself with a hot chick you had to buy a drink to get her to pose with you? Sick and tired of being called a mayor on the back of the purchase of an over priced coffee?

So are the people who created the Web 2.0 Suicide Machine, which enables you to erase your social networking profiles on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and MySpace. You simply login, hit ‘commit’ and sit back while the tool does its magic.

On the back of the release of this tool Facebook have commited their own version of a 2.0 suicide by sending a C&D letter, which was promtply published for all to see and led to a wave of publicity. I guess the Zuck is unfamiliar with the Streisand effect.

So tell us, are you ready to commit cyber suicide?
