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.

HOW TO: Backup Your Facebook Account

Facebook plays a central part in the lives of the majority of its 500 million users and it is certainly a content rich site. People upload photos, conversations and connect with friends all over the world. Sometimes, Facebook is the only place that has a copy of a photo, or it’s the only way that you can get in touch with a distant friend. So, naturally, it’s quite devastating to lose your Facebook profile, and it’s quite annoying trying to recreate your Facebook profile from scratch even if you have a copy of everything that is on it.

Giving the current state of Facebook administration and judging by just the number of daily comments we receive from users asking for help with their disabled profile, I felt obliged to write this post as it is the only way that I found to dampen the damage that occurs when the draconian Facebook cops decide to disable a profile.

While FacePAD is very useful in backing-up your photo albums, it is manual intensive and there is so much more to Facebook than photos.

Local Backup

The Plug-in at Work

ArchiveFacebook is a great Firefox plug that helps you to create a copy of your Facebook profile locally on your computer allowing you to access at anytime locally.

And The Nobel Peace Prize Goes to…

Upon hearing her name, the Internet, dressed up in her best attire of a colorful table-based website, and with a flock of blue Twitter birds flying over head, seemed to be really surprised. She quickly gets over the shock (thanks to multitude of fans updating the shock Wikipedia entries in her head), and struts her way to the stage to accept her prize.
