”Everyone talks about deleting their Facebook account, but we rarely take action," Social Roulette co-creator Kyle McDonald says. "Sometimes we need a simple game to help take the responsibility off our shoulders, and provide a moment for reflection." So he and friends created Social Roulette, which as Tech Crunch explains is "an online version of Russian Roulette, the lethal real-life game where a player places one bullet in a six-chamber revolver pistol, spins the cylinder, and fires the gun at their head."
Social Roulette works on your virtual self: play, and you have a one in six chance of having your Facebook account deleted. When I explained it to her, my wife asks, "Is that winning or losing?"
As of May 11th, Facebook has changed the API key, on the grounds that it was "creating a negative user experience." No kidding.
