Keep your friends close…

And your enemies online. Being on the Institute for Distributed Creativity list has brought the much-needed phenomenon of anti-social networking to my attention. If I had an estate to endow on someone, I would endow it on these people.

Enemybook: “Enemybook is an anti-social utility that disconnects you to the so-called friends around you. Enemybook remedies the one-sided perspective of Facebook, by allowing you to manage enemies as well as friends. With Enemybook you can add people as Facebook enemies, specify why they are your enemies, notify your enemies, see who lists you as an enemy, and even become friends with the enemies of your enemies.”

Snubster: “Who Needs Friends: The Snubster Difference”
(Apparently Snubster is actually becoming a real networking site now, and people are bonding over their shared dislikes – which is how we really make friends, after all..)

Here’s a real quote from someone’s Snubster list: [name of guy she hates] i sit next 2 him in social studies & he is always yelling across the room 2 Britney & making noises. he gives me a headache & actually annoys me on purpose. I HATE HIM!!!!!

Hatebook (made by Germans) Hatebook is an anti-social utility that disconnects you from the things YOU HATE.

“As some day it may happen that a victim must be found,
I’ve got a little list–I’ve got a little list
Of society offenders who might well be underground,
And who never would be missed–who never would be missed!
