*cide

noose.gifThe following actions comprise a list of Cliché behavior in social networking. While these actions have, until reaching cliché status, made the actor appear to be somewhat introspective, deep and rather emotionally connected, they in fact represent a culmination of the symptoms of a stew of behavioral disorders and general lack of personal management skills.

The compulsion to add too many people as your friend early on in a new social network will be known from now on as Friendive-Compulsive disorder.

The list is as follows:

* Declaring email bankruptcy. First known cases: 2002. There has recently been a resurgence in the financial and startup blogging worlds. “I have 500 unread emails. I am declaring email bankruptcy”

* Maintaining an Orkut, Friendster or Vox account and publicly claiming to actually log-in to these services

* Deleting your Facebook account. This one is growing in popularity and is most certainly already cliché, but we are not near the end of this.

* Having both a Myspace page and a Linkedin account. I am sorry, opposite worlds. You may implode or spontaneously ignite due to the fact that on one of them you are living a lie.

* The latest is Twittercide. The act of publicly announcing the killing of your oversubscribed twitter account.

  1. “2.0” anything is sooo overused. Funny story for those of you not in the south or midwest. There is this fast food chain called Sonic that is currently running a TV ad where a guy and his wife are at a drive thru window. The guy orders a “coffee 2.0”, so his wife asked why he ordered that. Then he says that “some guy in the office who is always getting promoted says “2.0” all the time, so I thought I would try it out.”

    I am probably not doing this gag justice, but it is hilarious.
