Facebook made me do it…

A man has been convicted for murdering his wife after she changed her Facebook marital status from “Married to Single” (BBC). Technollama argues that Facebook needs to come with a better disclaimer and suggests:

“This website can cause long-term damage to your relationship; put you in contact with people you would rather forget; destroy the idealised memories of that person you used to have a crush on in high-school; follow the daily happenings of the terminally inane and self-absorbed; and it may eventually cause death.”

Personally I think the disclaimer is too short and facebook should warn against all kinds of social interaction and not only the idealised re-unions online.
