Protecting your 18+ ‘children’…

Social Media Sobriety Test

There is a new application which aims to protect users from embarrassing social media posts that could hurt their friends, family, partner and possibly worst of all their digital reputation putting future job applications, future relationships, apartment rentals and so on at risk.  

For university students with a tendency to post 3 a.m. Facebook status updates describing in lurid detail the party they just returned home from, there’s a new web application that might save them from themselves.

Real estate agents, higher education and graduate schools and employers scour the sites for potentially damning social media posts—pictures that students would not want their parents to see and tweets displaying their party state of mind on a Friday night.

Now, the creators of a free new application released this month, Social Media Sobriety Test, say they can help university students—and anyone fearful of irresponsible social media posts—creating a firewall between themselves and their mishaps on social networking websites.

The Sobriety Test has a simple slogan: “Protecting you from all possible threats, even yourself.”
