Ever scrolled back on your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram feed and cringed? Or have you ever frantically scrambled through all of your social media posts while applying to a new job?
A new app called Clear can help you with that.
Clear will analyze your social media profiles and give you a score on the potential liability of your social media presence. It also flags all of your potentially embarrassing tweets or Facebook posts - posts with curse words or sexually or racially charged words. Some flagged words include "black" or "gay."
Founder Ethan Czahor has a very personal reason for creating the app; he lost his job as Jeb Bush's CTO because of offensive tweets.
Czahor wrote on the Clear website: "After graduating college, I moved to West Hollywood to study improv comedy at The Groundlings. I used my Twitter feed to test material, all of which was humorous and well-intended within the context of my community. Several years and career changes later, after having success in the startup world and battling Lyme disease, I landed my dream job: CTO of Jeb Bush's political operations.
"Unfortunately, my Twitter feed was unearthed, spun completely out of context to make me appear as someone I am certainly not, and I lost my job. I created Clear to make sure situations like mine never happen to anyone ever again.”
There are currently more than 1,000 people on the wait list for the app.
