Social Media Sobriety Test: Don’t Drink & Tweet!

Nothing good happens online after 1a.m. Put an end to the embarrassment that follows regrettable, late-night posts!

How many times did you get back home, after a few drinks, drunk or tipsy then started tweeting or updating your Facebook status without really knowing what it is that you are typing away? How much trouble did that get you in?

Avoidable Posts!

Well, have no fear, your solution is a few clicks away!

“The Social Media Sobriety Test,” a free Firefox plug-in from online-security company Webroot, lets users name sites, like Facebook and Twitter, on which they’d like a little oversight.

Pedigree’s “Write a Post, Help a Dog” — Learn Social Media By Example

Pedigree: Write A Post, Help A Dog

Over 4 million dogs wind up homeless each year.

The Pedigree Foundation has created a website with resources for adopting a shelter dog. Included in the website’s information are links to area shelters, articles on responsible dog ownership, and information about how to get a free month of dog food for newly adopted shelter dogs.

Campaign Idea & Objectives:

Pedigree invited people to join them in their efforts to not only feed these dogs without a family, but to encourage individuals to adopt a shelter dog as their next companion. Like Pedigree says, “every dog deserves a healthy and happy life.”

The concept was simple; dog bloggers had to write a blog post about Pedigree’s adoption program before September 19, 2010, and Pedigree promised to donate a 20 pound bag of the company’s new Healthy Longevity dog food to an animal shelter.
