Commited Social Suicide…well not quite…

I read from somewhere the other day that there were sites around the internet that helped people commit suicide… Wondering what this was all about, I found out that people weren’t exactly committing real suicide but rather “Social Suicides” which is where they wipe out their “Online Persona”. There are actually sites out there that allow and help people get rid of their online persona like those on MySpace, Friendster or Facebook. Now this is an interesting thought and naturally these social sites have “blocked” such sites from accessing and doing what they should be. Naturally it goes against the privacy and access policies stated on these social sites.

I guess there are actually people out there who wish to get rid of their online information and identities. Reasons could be many fold but I guess sometimes, the less information there is available online for others to see, the safe one would feel. However this means that the person would also be less “connected” and “wired”.

As a first move in joining this social suicide move, I actually removed all the game applications like “Special Forces”, “Restaurant City”, “Farmville”, “Fishville” from my Facebook profile. Why? Well… coz I guess I’ve had enough fun with these apps and I’d like to spend my time doing other more productive things like writing this blog entry for example. If I didn’t remove the apps today, I’d most probably be doing some missions or feeding my hungry staff and fishes and not to mention ploughing my field and milking my cows…

If anyone wants to call me out for a drink… I’m now free to take up your offer… 🙂

Duplicated Tweet Messages on Facebook

I’ve got a problem here…. whenever I perform a post here on wordpress, a copy is automatically sent to Tweeter via Tweeter Tools. Tweeter will then send a copy of my latest Tweets to Facebook.

Meanwhile I also have a WordBook Plugin here which posts my articles to Facebook.

As you can see… I end up having double posts on Facebook. I guess I will need to disable one of them.. either Tweeter Tools or WordBook. Any idea which one I should choose to disable? Please let me know your comments and suggestions here…

SMS Control for Facebook

Judging from how popular Facebook is amongst my friends and being interested to see how easy it is to develop an application for Facebook, I have taken the opportunity to create an application which allows facebook users to update their STATUS messages without needing to be seated infront of their computer with an internet connection.

Users who install the application and carry out the mobile phone authentication verification will be able to use their Mobile Phones to update their status wherever they are.
