Facebook app that blackmails you to be more productive

Aherk! threatens to publish embarrassing photos to users’ Facebook profiles, in order to encourage them to complete tasks within a deadline.


This app is simple:

  • The user defines a goal 
  • The user uploads a compromising picture 
  • The users friends decides if the user reached the timebound goal - if not, the picture get's posted

I'm a big fan of social pressure to achieve goals. My biggest concern here, wouldn't friends indicate that the user did not achieve their goal...even if the user did...just to embarrass their friends. That's what friends do.

What do you think?
