Thomas Crampton is No Longer Engaged

Boing Boing posted a funny story about Thomas Crampton, who unchecked the engaged box in Facebook and unwittingly notified his entier social network that we was not engaged anymore.

Thomas did it to keep privacy in his affairs (and he is still engaged)… but didn’t know that he was creating a serious communications situation that spanned “nine time zones” and auto notified and sent to feeds his new status. Although he was still engaged… he just wanted more privacy in his relationship and decided to change a setting. He also became a rapid source of condolences on Twitter.

Wow… what a demonstration of the power of digital rumors and word of click messaging.
