Is your New Year’s Resolution to reduce the amount of time you spend on Social Media sites? Or maybe it’s to completely stop the time-sucking that is Facebook and Twitter.

Here’s a site you should know about…Web 2.0 Suicide Machine . It allows you to sign out of all your Social Networking sites forever.

“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!”

This is for serious quitters only. Once you commit Social Networking suicide – there is no going back. It takes less than an hour to delete all traces by the suicide machine. Manual suicide?  9 hours 35 minutes.

Watch videos of those who were brave even to commit, read their last words…and do it if you dare!

pattern_1This is kinds crazy. Create a pattern via Twitter, it gets encoded somehow, and then gets turned into a graphic on a T-Shirt. 

The concept, created by Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi is based on the idea of using something ‘the wrong way’. Creating a new use for an old technology but combining it with a new one. pattern_3

This video gives a look into how it works.

There is a misconception that Twitter is for teenagers wanting to know exactly what their friends are doing at any given moment. Twitter is a serious business…Nielsen Wire reported last week that Twitter use increased at an amazing rate of 1,382% in one year.  February 2008 saw 475,000 unique visitors, while February 2009 had 7 million users! That makes Twitter is the fastest growing site in the Member Communities category, followed by Zimbio with a 240% gain and Facebook growing 228%.

What accounts for this incredible growth?  The 35-49 year old demographic is 41% of the site’s audience.  Does this mean people are using it for business?  The majority of people visit while at work – 62%, while 35% access it from home.  

I wonder if Obama and his Twitter use for his campaign from the beginning, had anything to do with this amazing surge in the site’s use.
