Aherk publicly embarrasses you on Facebook if you fail to meet your personal goals to help motivate users.

When there’s a consequence for not completing a personal goal, you might be more willing to motive yourself. With the web-based app Aherk, you can now blackmail yourself for failing to reach a goal by posting an embarrassing photo on Facebook.

On the website, you can define a goal by stating what you want to achieve and when. Then, you get to upload a compromising photo of yourself, which will only be posted on the social networking site if you don’t meet your goal. After the deadline expires, your friends on Facebook get to vote if you’ve successfully reached your objective.
