Clean Up Your Social Media

clearappWe’ve all heard it before “Don’t post anything online you wouldn’t want your grandmother to see.” For most of us, the consequence of disregarding that advice is varying degrees of embarrassment sometimes combined with some explaining to do. For others, the fallout can be a lot more painful.

Ethan Czaho, former Chief Technology Officer of Jeb Bush’s US presidential campaign learned the hard way. The 31 year old resigned his plum position a mere 36 hours after a series of distasteful tweets and posts from his past were brought to light. Now Czaho’s done something to help others prevent a similar fate with the “Clear” app.

The beta version, released last week, combs through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts for potentially inflammatory posts and gives users the option of deleting them. Czaho says the iOS app will eventually include additional social networks, emails, personal blogs, and search results.

Unfortunately, you can’t use it right now but you can sign up to be put on the list. While nothing can done about people grabbing screen captures of postings, it’s looking like a useful tool to have in your online identity arsenal.

Thanks for listening 🙂
