Death by Facebook?!?!

Okay. I just want to say before I get started that Facebook is a toy. It’s great for staying in touch, keeping random people (and friends) informed about your life, and it’s a decent way to send messages, but at the end of the day we all have to remember that it is a toy. We use Facebook for fun. Hence, a toy – like a video game or an action figure or a board game.

Now with that out of the way, I’d like to turn your attention to the Mr. Crazy, who didn’t seem to embrace this concept (I think the headline says everything you need to know:

British man killed wife over ‘single’ Facebook status. 

Are you kidding me???  

How insecure of a person do you have to be to kill your wife for changing her facebook status to single? I mean, let’s assume for a second that Facebook isn’t a toy and that it really was the definition of all that is real (and I know I personally continually joke that it is) – have you ever heard of a divorce??!? I guess something insane like this was inevitable. 

I can’t even fathom what’s next…

  1. Um. Well I know that I was not officially married to my husband until my facebook status said so. That’s what they told me down at the Town Hall. It’s actually why I got a facebook. I want to make sure that my children are legitamate and I would hate for an online profile to doom them to life as bastards.

    Huh…

  2. Now here’s a question for you: How would you feel if someone you counted as an actual friend de-friended you on Facebook and did not tell you, just let you find out on your own? I think I might freak out, just like the husband. I mean, it’s not a true relationship, unless you are virtual friends online, right?
