The Truth About Google Plus

Let me start off with a warning. Playing around with things you don't understand can ruin you for life.

You risk your lives for the sake of a thrill; say Bloody Mary three times, summon Satan, watch satanic videos or even type numbers you know will eat away at you.

A few months ago I typed the number "666" in hopes of finding a community on Google+ to troll. What I found instead was disturbing.

At first everything seemed normal. Normal users, normal text, pictures, stuff like that. People spoke of expected things like blood and devil worship. But I found that, over time, the users faces were falling apart; they looked like melting plastic. Each face swirled faster and faster, looking upon me with eyes of evil intent. They laughed, they cried in torture, they moaned in loud tones and grumbled on in a language I couldn't understand. I should have turned off the computer long before, but I was compelled by fear and kept watching. But I wasn't just watching anymore; from the computer came a foul odor almost like a family of dead bodies rotting away in a dumpster. My gut felt like it just about hit the floor as my heart twisted into knots. My entire body became covered in goose bumps. I wanted badly to scream but I was too damn scared to even try it. I honestly terrified at the thought that maybe some demented being would just pull me into the computer and I'd be trapped in a literal online hell.

The screen flashed from it's normal white to black and even the notification's bell seemed to lose it's friendliness.

I clicked on the screen like a mad man and finally tried turning it off but nothing came of it. Instead the black screen continued on it's disturbing path and the bell became more and more sadistic. A sort of deep, murmured, scrambled voice could be heard which made me vomit chunks of my dinner all over the keyboard. The harder I tried to escape, the deeper I fell. I may not have understood technology, but I knew enough to understand that this wasn't okay. Trembling, I dared myself to get up and took the computer outside to the dumpster and never saw it again.

I've not been the same since that evening. Every single night I dream about what took place and it's always the same scene. Nothing dramatized, nothing edited. Fortunately, the community has since been reported and removed from Google +.

Jennifer Sibley Jannise: So, I originally read the book because my daughter asked me to. However, I read it in 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is well written and thought out. If the author writes and publishes any more books, I would definitely read them.

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Erica Mifflin: is very very neat and is one of my favorite novel of all time I want more stories like this please write another one. I love it so much thank you for your stories it was like a good book to my heart and I want more stories like this

cuzley: I enjoyed this read, the romance and the "who done it" worked well together, I would recommend this story to both romance and mystery readers .

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

Kashaf Azmat: The concept is excellent everything is well defined that you can picture the whole scenario which makes you feel connected to the plot and this is the thing that catches my eye and this what i am looking for in every novel.Keep it up

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Aloehas: When I first started this book, I could not put it down. The author gets you attached to these characters and takes you on an emotional rollercoaster throughout the story, and it's just amazing. I'm looking forward to what else she can do.

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -
