World Without Me – Privacy in the Digital World

Today, netizens live very public lives. With Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, Google+, Flickr and many other social networks it has become difficult to keep your personal life out of the public eye.  Also, the privacy settings on these websites can be very confusing.

Stalking on Social Web

World Without Me offers a solution in one simple word – “Percial???; very simply put, Personal + Social. “Percial” is the basis of some cool features on the Digital Afterlife planning website – www.worldwithoutme.com. World Without Me tools like Discussions and Dispatches help make your web experience percial – i.e. perfect blend of personal space while still giving an option to be selectively social.

World Without Me Discussions are closed private conversations which are perfect for talking about an important issue or planning a secret event with your close friends and family. Only the people you invite to a Discussion can view and participate in that particular Discussion. For example, you want to throw your best friend a surprise birthday party. you may start a Discussion on World Without Me inviting a few close friends to discuss the details of the party in secret out of sight of party poopers.

 Dispatches on World Without Me is a cool way to schedule messages for future delivery. You could set a future message to be delivered next week, or next year or even after a decade! You can also set Dispatches to be forwarded to your loved in your Digital Afterlife.

Moreover, you can personalize Dispatches by attaching audio or video clips or any file you would like to share with the recipient. For example, you want to send a future message to your spouse on your anniversary, containing a video montage of your last vacation together. You can create and attach the video montage to your Dispatch and schedule it for delivery on the date of your anniversary.

To add to your Percial experience, you can create a Digital Autobiography on the go by archiving your Digital Footprint at World Without Me. You can add important emails, upload documents, archive your Tweets and Facebook updates to your Digital Footprint and share it with your close friends and family during your lifetime and also after death.

The percial experience at World Without Me is a relief from the otherwise increasingly creepy social network scenario present today. Don’t think social networks are creepy? Well you surely have another thought coming after this app experience.
