1. Teen Takes Her Own Life After Being Banned From Wasting It On Facebook

A 17-year-old girl hanged herself in her Parbhani, India bedroom earlier this week after her parents forbade her from logging on to her Facebook account so that she could concentrate on her school work. "I cannot stay in a home with such restrictions as I can't live without Facebook,” the teen wrote in her suicide note. Gawker commenter johhnymoore probably stated the inherent tragedy of the situation best: “It is sad she had to leave a suicide note the old fashioned way rather than a Facebook status update.”
