Had enough of social networking? Commit a virtual suicide. Go absolutely off from your networks like Twitter and Facebook with Web 2.0 Suicide Machine, a natty service that will wash out your online presence from these life consuming sites. Ever since its December 09 launch, 83,481 friends have been unfriended and 284,622 tweets have been removed.

All you have to do is, become fed up of the social networking world, go to the website, hand in your log in details and click on Commit – the service will conk off your tweets, Facebook friends, connections on LinkedIn. Left will be the remainders – a profile with no info or data – only your profile picture stays with a suicide message that you’ve written. Not much different than manual deletion except for the long Q&A procedure and no permanent removal from social space- users after suicide will never be able to resurrect the same profile.

Final words or Testimonials range from morbid good riddance, “Together we stand, divided we fall,” “I regret nothing,” and disparages, “I told you so, you damned fools!”

Facebook has raised objections to their trimming number of users and warned the founders of Suicide Machine citing privacy infringement. It even went ahead and blocked Suicide Machine from accessing its website but to no avail as the tool continues to push people off the hill.
