Remember how much fun that Mexican vacation was? Remember all of those embarrassing photos your friends tagged you in?
One of the things we tell job seekers is to delete any inappropriate content on your social media accounts. Whether it was a ranting tweet, a Facebook check in from that strip club or an awkward photo on Instagram, you don’t want a potential employer to see it.
Clear is a free iOS app that will connect with your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts and analyze the information to flag any inappropriate material. It uses a algorithms to filter through your posts and identify troubling keywords.
Now Clear is not going to delete the offensive content, but it will make it easy for you to find and simply delete. And currently, the app does not have the ability to scan photos or videos, but the creator claims that it’s in the works, as well as adding more social networks.
Speaking of the creator – Ethan Czahor was hired as Jeb Bush’s campaign chief technology officer, but had to resign due to some offensive tweets from years before. So he created Clear “to make sure situations like mine never happen to anyone ever again.”
The app is still in beta and there is a wait list, but you can sign up today and they will email you when it becomes available for you.
