Have you ever wanted to know what your friends and family really think about you? Have you always wanted to say a few things to somebody but you've thought about it twice due to the possible consequences? Now, thanks to the mobile application Sarahah, you can speak your mind without worries.
What is Sarahah?
It's an application born in Saudi Arabia that first appeared as an internal web of a company where its employees could leave anonymous comments for their bosses. From there, it evolved into a mobile application for Android and iPhone so that anyone could leave messages for their acquaintances, and over the last few weeks, it has become viral thanks to the fact that Snapchat has started to allow its users to share their profile in the ephemeral messaging app.
Over 300 million anonymous messages to the date.
How does Sarahah work?
Using this application from your Android smartphone or tablet (it's also available for iPhone and iPad) is as easy as downloading the APK from Google Play, filling in your personal data and starting to share the link to your profile with whoever you want. You'll soon start receiving anonymous comments in your inbox and you can also search for other users of the social network by name to leave your opinion about them.
A worthy successor to Yik Yak and Secret.
Obviously, and although the platform was born to try to encourage constructive criticism, the anonymity behind which its users hide has led to all sorts of hate and abuse messages, and its controversy has also contributed to making it viral although its developers are already trying to fight against this kind of practice.
