GChat’s Power of Invisibility

Now, going on GChat to see if other people are online and reading their away messages is less shameful and more stalker-y than ever. Use the new “invisible” feature and no one can even tell you’re there while you sit online for hours and hours watching status bubbles go from green to orange.

Panopticonic!

      @Anonymous Dear punster,
