Say "goodbye" to Instagram -- and six other Internet goals for 2013

It's that time of year when we start to let go of what has happened over the last twelve months and look forward to doing things in a better way over the next twelve. Or if you're like me, it's just that time before the total hysteria of another year sets in and you proceed to re-up your diet pills, charge your crystals and pray to god(s)/Magic 8-ball that someone digs up a husband for you.

Anyway, inspired by the suggestion of words that need to be retired in 2013, here's a list of Internet-related things that should also cease to exist in the coming year, and make our virtual world a slightly better (if not less irritating) place.
