Xpire is a free app that makes it easy to shrink your digital footprint. People have been sharing content on platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, etc. Such large amounts of data sharing creates a large collection of data that can potentially be used against us in the future.
With Xpire, you can:
Share self-destructing posts on Twitter and Facebook
Use keywords to rediscover your past tweets
Manage your tweets, re-tweets, favorites, followers, and who you’re following
Remove unwanted followers
Erase all your tweets
Xpire, a free app for the iPhone, is designed to allows users to create a post and then put it on a timer. After the set amount of time has elapsed, the post is deleted.
Users who want to cull their past posts can flip through a feed of all their updates, and easily delete all ones they’d like to ditch by checking boxes next to the posts and tapping a single button.
It’s a cool app that makes it easy to share things such as live events as they’re happening, and then keep the chatter from cluttering your feed.
It’s also a boon to people who want to control their messages on social media. If you want to post messages on the weekend about how much fun you’re having and make them disappear by the beginning of the work week, that’s totally doable.
Xpire isn’t a perfect solution for privacy, though. People can still take screenshots of posts that show up for a few minutes and preserve them forever. And while there may not be any concrete proof that you said something, people can still see and remember it.
Xpire offers more Facebook features to help you shrink your digital footprint. Xpire is now able to crawl your Facebook posts, allowing you to view your old posts, search through your posts, and calculate your Facebook Social Score! We have also added an “Expiring Posts” feature to help you manage and edit your posts that are about to expire.
Xpire is still very early-stage. They have plans to spread to more platforms and integrate with more services. Their vision is to be the way to manage all of your content, across the entire Internet—whether it be the things you like, the places you go, the music you listen to, the posts you like, the recipes you pin, the things you re-tweet, the purchases you make, the reviews you leave, the videos you share, etc.
