Web 2.0 Suicide Machine, Facebook bans the application!

Web2.0_Suicide_Machine

Most of us have heard the term ‘Social Suicide’ which is intended to isolate oneself from the social scene or a social circle but very few must have heard about a Web 2.0 Social Suicide which intends to make one disappear from the Web forever, in other words committing a web suicide. There is an application on SuicideMachine.org which allows anyone to kill all the social networking profiles just with a click.

Of course the idea is not very pleasant but here is how they are preaching the Web Suicide:

Liberate your newbie friends with a Web2.0 suicide! 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 service currently runs with Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and LinkedIn! Commit NOW!

Facecbook has taken action on this by blocking the IP, the suicide Machine use.

After more than 50.000 friends being unfriended and more than 500 forever "signed-out" users, Facebook started to block our suicidemachine from their servers without any comment! We are currently looking in ways to circumvent this ungrounded restriction imposed on our service!

Thanks for your understanding
Sincerly,
Your 2.0 suicide team

As it has been clear by the statement that they haven’t dropped their weapons rather they are finding more backdoors in order to accomplish it. Facebook representative has given the following statement in this regard:

Facebook provides the ability for people who no longer want to use the site to either deactivate their account or delete it completely. Web 2.0 Suicide Machine collects login credentials and scrapes Facebook pages, which are violations of our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. We’ve blocked the site’s access to Facebook as is our policy for sites that violate our SRR. We’re currently investigating and considering whether to take further action

It will be interesting to see how Facebook responds on this any further.

  • […] The term ‘Social Suicide’ was a buzz a few months back when ‘Web 2.0 Suicide Machine’ was introduced that could delete your social networking accounts with just a single mouse click. This website was successful in motivating people to remove their virtual friends and get back to the real world; in just a small period of time over 500 people deleted their facebook accounts and as a result facebook banned this application.
