Kill Off Your Online Identities With The Web 2.0 Suicide Machine

Supposedly the most depressing day of the year is just a few weeks away, and that sucks. But if you off yourself, you can’t drink, so it’s a conundrum. What you can do is use the website to remove yourself from unnecessary social media sites that either you’ve stopped using or don’t really enjoy anymore.

The metaphor is morbid, but the free service that Web 2.0 Suicide Machine offers is actually pretty cool:

This machine lets you delete all your energy sucking social-networking profiles, kill your fake virtual friends, and completely do away with your Web2.0 alterego. The machine is just a metaphor for the website which moddr_ is hosting; the belly of the beast where the web2.0 suicide scripts are maintained. Our services currently runs with Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and LinkedIn!

You could do it yourself, but the point of the service is to automate as much of the process as possible, so you’re not wasting valuable hours clicking through pages and hitting delete buttons.

And just to be completely clear, we’re only talking killing off unwanted social media profiles here. If you’re truly feeling depressed and iffy on the whole being alive thing, call this number first to talk anonymously with someone and get a second opinion: 1-800-273-TALK (8255). (See? I can take the subject seriously, too.) via Very Short List
