My last blog from today discussed the consequences that internet anonymity can result in, with a rather negative connotation. However, there can be many benefits to have a secret identity online. I can give you a big long list of these possible positive outcomes, but the one I want to talk about now is a new app called “Secret”. It is a really fun idea!
Some of us enjoy gossiping more than others, but I think one thing we can all agree on is that we love hearing secrets. Some of you may be thinking, “Wait a minute – I’ve already heard of a secret sharing app …” In which case you’d be correct. There already is a very popular secret sharing app where people log in and anonymously share their deepest and darkest secrets with the world – called Whisper.
While this app is pretty cool and can relate some pretty interesting information to its users, when it comes down to it, we are much more intrigued by the secrets people we know may be hiding. This is where the app Secret differentiates itself from Whisper.
If you're interested in trying it out, you have to search "Secret - Speak Freely".
The way that it works is that upon download, Secret accesses your contact list and sees who else of your friends has the app. They are then added to your little Secret community – with everyone remaining anonymous. After all that has been set up, share away! Nobody will know who is who and the secrets can start flowing.You don’t want your phone to die right when you’re about to read the juiciest secret of the day – so keep your phones charged with a Juno Power battery !
