Here’s one for all you perverts that swarm Facebook. Researchers from Kent State University have developed an app for Facebook that will help you clean up the potentially embarrassing “stuff” off your Facebook Profile.

Aptly titled “FaceWash,” the app scans through one’s profile for any mention of questionable content such as photos, posts, status updates, ‘liked’ pages etc. The app was developed by Daniel Gur, Camden Fullmer and David Steinberg when they realized that people might need a way to clean up their extensive Facebook activity in order maintain good chances of future employment.

In order to cleanse your dirty wall, all you have to do is browse over to facewa.sh followed by going to the app and giving it access to all your dirty laundry. Once all necessary permissions have been granted, just click on the Start icon and the app will start scanning for questionable content. You can also define custom search words to look for, which is pretty good for looking up posts that contain dirty slang. The app will conclude the search with clearly marked results and show links to each of the post to make their removal a breeze.

The FaceWash app, currently in Beta, is going to be saving many people a whole lot of embarrassment (and jobs!) given how effective it is. FaceWash is still in beta, but if you’re about to go for an interview and don’t want your future employer coming up on your drunken shenanigans, we recommend giving this app a spin.
