Out of all the catastrophes and fights breaking out on social media sights already, you know what would be a good idea? How about we create an app where you can say literally ANTHING you want to another person without them knowing who it’s from? What could possibly go wrong!?!
Meet Sarahah, which means “honesty” in Arabic – the new popular app that you’ll definitely be sick of hearing about in a matter of weeks.
This new app is dominating the App stores, even surpassing the most popular apps like Instagram, YouTube, and more.
How does it work? You log in, share your contacts, and anybody in your phone can message you anonymously. Meaning, they can say ANYTHING to you, and you can say ANYTHING to them, and nobody will know who it’s from.
According to the app, the purpose is to
- Enhance your areas of strength
- Strengthen Areas for Improvement
- Improve your friendship by discovering your strengths and areas for improvement
- Let your friends be honest with you
For an app that’s meant to promote “enhancing areas of strength” and “letting your friends be honest with you,” it’s opening up many doors to cyber bullying. IMAGINE THAT!! Last I checked, friends can be honest without an anynonymous app… but what do I know.
I just downloaded the app myself. Aaaaaand now we wait.
BuzzFeed has a pretty good description of the app on their site. Read more about it here.
For good measure… my personal favorite…
