BetaTool: FaceWash Makes Facebook Profile College and Career Ready

BETA FACEWASH is a Facebook app that allows you to remove incendiary language, questionable photos, pimples, blackheads, and er...other unsightly blemishes from your Facebook profile. By providing access to your wall, the app makes it easy to identify "dirty little jokes and beer talk, those late night snapshots, those forgotten 'likes'," and other immature digital footprints that potential employers or college admissions officers might happen upon otherwise. There's also a custom search function in case you need to erase a bad romance! Whether preparing for college and career or just cleaning out digital cobwebs, FaceWash presents itself as a promising choice for educators wanting students to reflect critically on their digital citizenry. Twitter scrubbing coming soon.
