Remember When We Thought The Facebook News Feed Was Creepy? Well A Woman Just Got Legally Divorced By Facebook
Remember when Facebook unveiled the News Feed and everyone flipped their shit because they thought their privacy was being violated?
And then 12 minutes later, everyone was like “oh look, my ex got fat and my childhood bully’s baby looks like an alien. I can get used to this feature.”
Or when the ‘Poke’ button was rolled out, everyone was like ‘that is so fucking creep–POKE ME OR I’LL STAB YOU.’
But what happens when Facebook unveils the ‘Divorce’ button?
A New York City judge has given a woman permission to file divorce papers via a private Facebook message, according to the New York Daily News.
Elanora Baidoo, 36, married Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku in 2009. But the marriage soured and Victor decided the most manly thing to do was pull a Houdini and straight up disappear on poor Elanora.
The terms of the digital divorce state that the private message will be sent once a week for three consecutive weeks or until acknowledged by Victor.
Unfortunately, it may be a while before divorce papers start flooding our News Feeds.
Elanora and Victor’s marriage was never consummated and they have never been living together, making Facebook a more appropriate forum to cut ties.
The first Facebook message has been sent, and no response has been delivered.
I know this is a unique circumstance but I am preparing for the day when my kids refuse to break-up with their partners using face-to-face human interaction. In order to avoid being that salty old-timer who lives to remind the younger generation they are a group of pussies, I know I’m going to have to come to terms with my kid sending a Facebook bot to deliver her belongings with a typed note “Let’s break up LOL.”
Nope, he’s going to get the belt.
