> Rotterdam, 18th of February 2010
> Facebook excommunicates WORM because of the Web2.0 Suicide Machine
> It is with great sorrow that we announce that Facebook Inc. has
> decided that WORM, the producer of the Web 2.0 Suicide Machine,
> will be excommunicated from Facebook.
> The initiative to build the Web 2.0 Suicide Machine came from
> Moddr_, WORM’s media lab. By threatening WORM, Facebook is trying
> to take down the Suicide Machine.
> The Web 2.0 Suicide Machine allows users of - among others -
> Facebook to commit ‘social network suicide’. Facebook threatens
> WORM with further legal action if WORM doesn’t stop targeting the
> FaceBook platform via the SuicideMachine. In addition, it has now
> also demanded that WORM immediately deletes its own Facebook
> profile (WORM_Rotterdam). According to Facebook and its lawyer, the
> Web 2.0 Suicide Machine has violated Facebook’s Terms of Service
> and with that WORM has forfeited it’s right to keep using the
> platform. WORM does not want to engage in a fight over this matter
> with Facebook. The idea behind the Web 2.0 Suicide Machine was to
> be able to ‘unfriend’ in an automated fashion and to make users of
> social networks aware that they should always be in control of
> their own data. Facebook won’t allow for this control and is also
> not willing to enter into this debate. We are pretty much done with
> that and are left with no other choice than to commit online
> suicide ourselves. The conditions and attitude of Facebook leave no
> other option as far as WORM is concerned.
> WORM deeply regrets the current situation. The web 2.0 Suicide
> Machine was never intended to target Facebook as such, but meant as
> a tool for people who, for whatever reason, are tired of their
> online life. Facebook wants all access to their service, personal
> data of their users included, to run via their own ‘connect’
> platform. In this way, Facebook can set, interpret and change its
> own rules as it sees fit...
> The excommunication of WORM illustrates that data freedom and net
> neutrality of users is merely an illusion on many social network
> sites. Not only is it not allowed for people to unfriend (in an
> automated manner), but companies also have the power to expel users
> they do not like. Facebook shows that a user only has the rights
> that Facebook grants it.
> Facebook claims all rights. WORM does not want to continue living
> in this 2.0 world. Which is why we say goodbye to all our friends.
> We wish you all the best.
> No flowers, no speeches.
> WORM, Rotterdam
