Online Social Media Sobriety Test

Download of the Day: Social Media Sobriety Test

According to Webroot, the company behind Social Media Sobriety Test, "Nothing good happens online after 1 a.m." And their new Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and IE plug-in aims to curb potentially harmful online behavior by giving the user a virtual field test before posting on certain social networks at certain times.

Find out how it works when you read more.

After downloading the plug-in, set the times you'd like to be "double-checked" before posting to Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and more. If you try to access one of those sites within your specified time frame, you'll have to perform some kind of hand-eye coordination test aimed at making sure you're sober enough to post. But beware, if you fail the coordination test, the Sobriety Test posts for you . . . with a message letting your contacts know that you're too intoxicated to post. Perhaps a better message than the one your drunk brain could've sent out over the Internet but still potentially damaging enough to try to avoid.
