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 +.

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully! I loved how I was able to imagine everything so explicitly because the writing was simple and easily comprehensive with a touch of complexity somewhere b...

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless. A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...

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.

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...

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 .

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

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.

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable. The story also has some sick plot twists, which I never saw coming. I loved the fact that it is an adorable love story but has its mystery touc...

BFIrving: A first rate story and well crafted, the blend of horror and action worked very well indeed and had me turning page after page. When not actually reading it, I found myself thinking about it which is always a good sign.There are quite a few grammatical and spell-checker errors but nothing anothe...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.
