Next Trend in Social Media – Editing Social History

Someone tags you in an unflattering picture on Facebook, you are incensed about something and you tweet a response, you answer a question on Quora without a critical piece of information, wouldn’t be great if there was a social media EDIT button?

Whether it is potentially personally embarrassing or taking an action to protect yourself from an employer, we expect to see a service in the near future for people who want to selectively edit their social history. A Silicon Valley smartie is undoubtedly working on a tool to delete photos from other people accounts, an automatic clean up of your Facebook wall and other actions to sanitize your social history.

With the controversy over Mark Zuckerberg and questionable privacy policies, we believe there will be a fundamental shift from hiding information to cleansing information. The interest in electronic brainwashing will increase and will have impact and influence for the foreseeable future.

For example, what politician would like that picture from the long, lost college days deleted from view and access well before they make the run for political office.  Wouldn’t President Obama like to have the famous picture of him smoking (right) when he was in college stricken from the public record.

In a world where perception is reality, former Iowa State head basketball coach Larry Eustachy lost his job over pictures (left) that surfaced about him drinking beer (well, Natural Light) with underage college coeds.  Some might argue that the choice of “Natty Lite” is the greater offense. Wouldn’t he like a social media cleanser?

According to the survey by Marist College in New York, half of all users on Facebook and Twitter polled say that verbal or photographic miscues lead them to believe social media does more harm than good.  We’re fairly confident that former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner agrees.

Let us know what you think will happen when someone from the ‘Millennial Generation’ runs for President. Without selectively editing social media history what do you think will happen to every tweet, Facebook status or blog post they ever wrote?

    Remember to never spray the face first, especially if they don’t know what to expect and have never had a spray tan before Point out to them that it will
    feel quite cold and that they shouldn’t allow their body
    to crease too much during the process. Also ensure that you don’t go
    for a shower right after the tanning session as it will wash away the tanning solution before it gets time to set in. As the mousse is tinted it does stain the palms of your hands really easily.
    Keeping such fire resistant items is good, but we should
    also act properly and remain cautioned to avoid such accidents.
    Shave and exfoliate skin before applying a self tan product to avoid spots
    and patches of darker skin. Both of them are great ways to have bronzed skin without hitting the tanning
    beds, but some ways are just better than others. – An easy way
    to apply the lotion to your back, is to
    take a long flat folded strip of cling film, add
    the fake tanning product to the middle, and make like you are towel drying your
    back in a side to side motion. Tanning is an art, whether in a tanning bed or a lotion applied at home or in the hot,
    humid sun. When tanning the face, have the client shut their eyes,
    take a deep breath and then you should begin tanning at the
    forehead and work down. DHA is the one which interface on the outer layer of
    the body to convert the color appearance, moreover it works in the similar way as like tanning lotions, but in this case the
    outer layer of the body is evenly covered with DHA and the special thing in this spray tanning is that
    it requires only one visit to complete solution.

    Blow drying can damage hair as can vigorous towel drying as when the hair is wet it is more elastic and vulnerable to
