At 5pm GMT on Friday (29 July) the online world of websites and social networks is being asked to go silent for just one minute as a mark of respect for the 93 lives lost amid the carnage in Norway last week.

A group of friends from Dublin have devised a way for the online world to pay their respects to the victims of last Friday’s bombing and shooting in Oslo and on the island of Utoya, and their friends and families.

The ‘four good friends’ are asking people to create an online one-minute of silence by not using Twitter or Facebook at 5pm on Friday, 29 July.

A website has been set up, along with a Twitter account and a Facebook account.
