Web 2.0 Suicide Machine Offs Your Online Identity

Sure, joining Twitter and Facebook seemed like a good idea at the time, but maybe you've changed your mind and want your life back. Web 2.0 Suicide Machine erases your persona like you were never there.

If you're sick and tired of being beholden to the siren song of constantly updating your social networks, it might be time to get out. Trouble is, you can't just suddenly stop updating or your friends might harass — or worse, "poke" you — to find out if you're OK.

Simply deleting your accounts won't necessarily solve the problem because you'll still leave little traces of yourself all over the social networking sites that are as easily associated with you as a fingerprint. Web 2.0 Suicide Machine completely eradicates your entire existence from the servers of sites like Twitter, LinkedIn and MySpace. (Facebook currently blocks the web app's IP address, so you're out of luck there for the time being.)

To use the tool you'll need to hand over your login credentials for the corresponding web app (you won't need them anymore anyway, right) and let the the Suicide Machine do its thing. If you do decide to off yourself, be aware it can't be undone — so be sure you're serious.

Are you so over social networking that you're ready to disappear yourself, or do you want to stick around and enjoy the party a little longer? Share your thoughts in the comments.

    Sounds like a good way to grab someone's ID

    apparently this won't work


      The original article points out that Facebook isn't an option for the service.

    Interesting idea, but FaceBook seems to have the better hand with allowing users to deactivate or delete their accounts already. Websites you should be worried about is the ones you get banned from and you can't do anything about what you have already left on the internet.
