Bhubaneswar: Netizens worldwide are busy baring their heart out, be it frustration against bosses or exes or love and laughter for crushes or friends, thanks to Internet’s latest infatuation, the Sarahah app. Odias too can’t stop having their share of fun with the ‘honesty’ app that lets the user remain anonymous.
Saudi developer Zain al-Abidin Tawfiq may have created it for employees to ‘leave a constructive message’ which is still the app’s tag line, but the ‘anonymous’ feature has caught the imagination of social media users who are commenting on and receiving comments from their Twitter, Snapchat or Facebook using friends, but without name of the sender revealed.
Odias on social media are also lapping up the opportunity to speak up anonymously and share their feelings about their friends, favourite celebrities and secret crushes.
While some instances of misuse of the app by sending hate messages or trolls are also coming up, hopefully fun loving Odias will continue to use the app for expressing their feelings or for harmless leg pulling of friends.
How to use Sarahah app?
- Android users can download the app from Google Play Store and iOS users from App Store.
- They need to register with email ID, name and password to create an account on the app after installation.
- And directly share the link to Sarahah profile with Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media platform to let friends know.
- Friends using Sarahah will now be able to send anonymous messages.
Meanwhile, the receiver cannot respond to the messages, but surely the feature will be added soon.
