[WEBINAR] Bulletproof: How Today's Business Leaders Stay on Top


Definition - What does Cybercide mean?

Cybercide is a slang term for the deletion of an individual's entire online presences. Cybercide includes the removal of all social media profiles, shared photos, blog posts, directory entries and so on. Generally, a person commits cybercide out of a desire to be less connected and dependent on the Internet.

Techopedia explains Cybercide

There is no standard method of committing cybercide. In fact, it may not be entirely possible or practical. While constantly participating in social media, chat groups, sharing sites and blogs can easily be taken to an extreme, the opposite scenario where an individual has no email, no profiles and so on is just as extreme. From finding employment to keeping on top of local news, having an online presence can be very useful. Most people are able to handle their online presence in a sustainable way, but few may fall prey to Internet addiction or dependency. Thus, if a person is nursing an unhealthy addiction to being constantly connected, cybercide may be an effective way to go cold turkey.
