Hi my name is Kellie Cunningham and I am a victim of posting outlandish thoughts after one too many glasses of vino. However, my prayers have been answered. The “Social Media Sobriety Test”, a free Firefox plug-in may just help save my reputation moving forward (although I wish there was a plug-in to turn back time!).
“The Social Media Sobriety Test,”, has gotten quite the attention from the media recently. Users can predetermine hours when they might be tempted to make regretful posts on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Flikr. Before allowing you to post, the program will ask you a series of tests like keeping the cursor inside a moving circle or typing the alphabet backwards.
While Mashable reported failing the test cold sober, I think it’s a risk I’m willing to take to help avoid unwanted philosophical rants after a night out on the town.
Drink and post responsibly!
