The Social Media Sobriety Test
Ever written a late-night
Facebook post only to wake up in the morning and wish you could take it
back? If you answered yes to that question, you can take comfort in the
fact that you are not alone!
Apparently, the incidence of
drunken social networking is on the increase, resulting in thousands of
people suffering from embarrassment and remorse to go along with the
morning-after hangover. For some, it could mean the end of a job, a
friendship, or even a marriage!
tongue-in-cheek service puts the would-be Facebook poster through the
Internet equivalent of a roadside sobriety check , asking the user to
follow a slowly moving cursor around the computer screen and take on
other challenges. Pass and you are good to post away. Fail and you will
be locked out of your account.
But that’s not the end of the
story. In much the same way as failing a real roadside test can result
in public humiliation, failing the Webroot test results in an automatic
post to your Facebook account telling the world that you are “too
intoxicated to post right now.”
Although Webroot’s sobriety test
is mostly a PR stunt, they are clearly onto something. In this
always-connected, can’t-be-deleted digital age, we need saving from
ourselves. And, as their web site says, “Nothing good happens online
after 1 am.”

As you may have guessed, it is made of titanium and some stainless steel¡ªthe case is titanium and the rolex replica sale is stainless steel. The dial is brown, the watch hands are silver-toned, and there is a date window at the four o¡¯clock position. The sapphire case protects the breitling replica sale from water damage up to 30 meters. Synergy means cooperative action. This replica watches uk combines the best of the old and the new to deliver something uniquely modern. All of the classic elements are there. It has the sleek and stylish dial of the replica watches uk, the concave dot at the 12 o¡¯clock hour, and the Swiss quartz movement. But the Sapphire Synergy has something few breitling replica sale offer, a rubber wristband. Why rubber? Well, it¡¯s not a sport rolex replica sale, so using it outdoors is out of the question. But the informal band gives it a more casual look and feel, which can be quite appealing to the modern male.
