The Social Media Sobriety Test

facebook_sobriety_test.jpgSocial websites can be pretty great, but they can also be a two-edged sword. For every time we've heard about long-lost friends reconnecting through Facebook, we've heard 10 horror stories about people getting on them while in their cups, and saying things they shouldn't. They call liquor a "social lubricant," but there are some times when you should leave your Facebook posts...unlubricated. OK, that came out weird, but you know what we mean.

Rick over at CocktailGoGo let us know about a great tool called the Social Media Sobriety Test, and we've got some friends that should be forced to say the alphabet backward, skipping all the vowels, and giving the sign language for each one before they're allowed on Facebook after 10 PM. This doesn't go quite that far, but it could help you avoid some embarrassing posts...

If you access your computer during the witching hours, it makes you do a simple sobriety test such as use the mouse to make a straight line, follow the finger, or type the alphabet backwards. The last one being something I couldn't do completely sober, but might be a lot more fun if I tried it drunk.

Now, you can make sure you don't post that picture of you in a tankini doing a kegstand while a 9 year old holds your legs up.
