Put an Expiry date on your Facebook pictures with Eraser-like Software
How many of you have posted unflattering and possibly incriminating photos? With the capability to post unlimited amounts of pictures, it can be pretty tedious and time-consuming to sift through the collection of posted and tagged photos over the years.
A German firm was poised Thursday to launch software allowing users of social networking websites to have photos automatically erased after a certain time.
The software, called X-Pire, would allow users of sites such as Facebook, MySpace and Flickr to prevent embarrassing photographs from coming back to haunt them by assigning each photo with an electronic key that allows it to be viewed for a limited time period.
So, once the photo’s time is up or expired, the server will not allow anyone to view the picture – thus eliminating concerns of social networking site users that may be looking for a job.
Even though users do have the ability to delete photos, most times they don’t get around to it because Facebook users are “passive users,” this according to Prof. Dr. Michael Backes, the man behind X-pire!
Unfortunately all this convenience comes at with a price tag, the software will be available this month and will cost $2.61 (€2) per month.
