The web is filled with opportunities to humiliate yourself. You reply all with a scathing takedown of your boss; you post pictures on Facebook of a drunken night out and your mom starts to worry; you accidentally tweet a picture of your downstairs business to the internet at large. This simple tool helps you protect the privacy of your Weiner whenever possible.
Internet Shame Insurance is a very simple Google Chrome extension that adds privacy reminders to Facebook, Twitter, and Gmail to help you avoid the most common online communication faux pas. The extension sits in the background and springs into action only when you're about to post a status update or reply all.

FAQ: This Is Dumb
Hey, we could all use a little help occasionally. If you don't need an extension to help you avoid this kind of online embarrassment, that's fine. But if you wouldn't mind a little extra help--or a little insurance, as it were, against that kind of online shame--then install the extension and enjoy. Obviously it's not going to help you if you're using, say, a Twitter client rather than the Twitter.com homepage, but it'll help where it can.
