Users downloading and activating the Social Media Sobriety Test can choose which sites to block, then select the hours of the day they are most likely to have enjoyed a few drinks.

The aim is to prevent alcohol-related posting to sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, Tumblr, as well as custom sites like Foursquare or a blog and/or web-based email accounts such as Gmail or Hotmail.

“For access to social media sites during these times, you will have to pass a randomly selected sobriety test such as ‘drag your mouse in a straight line’, ‘type the alphabet backwards’ or ‘follow the finger’,” a Webroot spokesman said.
