One of my favorite parts of this app is that every question has a positive / funny vibe to it. Every other anonymous app could be used for bullying, but this one can't.

@vineetdevaiah sure, but I've seen anonymous apps that tout that experience and are unable to maintain that atmosphere because the features allow for trolling

@besvinick this is still the comment I went looking for to back up their claims. When I read that the app had only a positive vibe I did not believe it for a second and didn't understand the premise. My automatic response was "Yeah, right. Okay, sure" while scenes of the Black Mirror episode where you rate people played through my mind.

It's popular among the teens because it provides a quick outlet to anonymously put friends in the spotlight in a gamified fashion. Anonymous chatter apps are fun toys, but are destined to fail or be replaced by the next one to pop up. tbh lacks utility beyond an anonymous toy (read: no redeeming qualities). The app is beautiful and the positive approach is noble, but I predict it will drop off in a similar fashion to Yo, Down to Lunch, or Brighten because it doesn't actually "do" anything for the consumer other than briefly scratch their social itch.

Pros:

Beautifully designed. Intelligent use of social dynamics that incentivizes word of mouth spread. Focus on positivity.

Cons:

0 real world utility beyond the surface level gimmick.

Hello Chris, Don't you think Instagram's success proves that Social Itch Scratching is a viable product category, if done right?

No social app does anything for young people. Thatโ€™s why so many are in fact self-absorbed, antisocial morons today. Your opening sentence reminds me why almost everyone over 50 who works with tech wants to set it all in fire.

This app has remained under the radar in the tech world until recently. It's currently #1 in the App Store (free, U.S.). I'm not too surprised to see it blowing up among the younger audience. Anonymous apps often drive a ton of engagement through its mystery and polls are an effective way to solicit responses and engagement.

I can see how this might become highly popular with tons of engagement. Putting my grumpy old guy hat on and I'll admit I'm happy these didn't exist when I was a teenager. I can foresee long discussions trying to get my kids to focus on important things instead of being convinced they're no good because some other kid wins more popularity contests in an app.

@brunomorency my thoughts exactly. While there may be no bullying and outright maliciousness, vanity metrics + teens = recipe for depression, which is quite ironic.

@wuss what about the kids receiving dozens of votes and telling other kids in the classroom how popular they are? don't you think that could make the not so famous kids jealous, which indeed could be a recipe for depressions? ๐Ÿค”
