Make Your Facebook Profile Business Friendly With Web App
Facewash is a new web app that gives users of Facebook the ability to clear out profanities and cursing from their profile in order to look more professional and business friendly.
A negative and sometimes embarrassing profile on social media can often be the difference between being accepted into the business world, or continuing to be overlooked for a professional role.
Party photos from nights out, bad language, and confusing privacy settings will often cause a bad impression to a potential employer when they begin researching job applicants. This sort of content will now become even more evident due to Facebook’s Graph Search feature.
The Facewash app will search through your Facebook profile once you have connected to it with your account. The app will scan through photos that you’re tagged in, photos that you have posted, comments posted on your wall, status updates, links that you’ve liked and more for anything that resembles offensive content.
Comments such as ‘xxx’ will be flagged up, with users of the app also able to search for specific content or words that they feel may offend someone. This content can then be deleted should they wish to do so.
Although the default that Facewash abides to isn’t perfect, it definitely looks along the basics of what could be considered offensive and negative.
Social media, and in particular your Facebook profile is often visited by businesses when they review applications for a particular role in their company. Having a profile which is politically correct and offers nothing in terms of offense will give a good impression and increase chances of finding work.
Businesses can also profit from the app as their own page could be scrutinised by potential customers for having negative content on display. The company then will be able to distinguish which comments are constructive and which are merely offensive.
