Facebook Suicide Photo

The blame is placed upon "social isolation in the Internet age."

31-year old Claire Lin of Taiwan documented her suicide heavily through each step on Facebook through pictures and postings. In one picture Lin showed a charcoal barbecue burning next to two stuffed animals and in another her room filled with fumes. She also described what she was going through in graphic detail and some of our friends pleaded with her to not go through with the suicide.

  1. ...and the world still spins...without a care really.

    thats why I live for myself! cause you don't know when you're going to die, or who will even give a crap.

  2. Facebook breaks up marriages, it breaks up friendships, it breaks up family members and now it appears it also kills.

  3. Well, here's yet another reason I hate this monster that Facebook has become. They call it a "social network," but really it's an anti-social network. Everybody has so many so-called friends, most of whom they will never meet and interact with on a human level. They know all the details of your life and the things you're dealing with, but they won't even call the authorities and attempt to help you when for over an hour you are killing yourself and uploading photos of it. What a stinking narcissistic age we live in. I thought we were done with the "Me Generation," but clearly it's still all about me, me, me. Shameful.

  4. No one cares about you on FB ,they only are selfish and thrive off your suffering,
    that is why i opt out of FB !! God is the answer whom will have his angels drive,
    away the demons, so that you will live and be happy while on earth.*

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
