The Internet knows a lot about us, our likes, dislikes, interests, and preferences. It is almost impossible to be anonymous, because everything we do online leaves a digital trace. This problem is particularly noticeable on social networks like Facebook and Twitter, where we share many intimate details from our lives.
But not every social network forces you to sign every post with your name, profile picture, and location. Secret, an anonymous community for sharing secrets, has gained great popularity among iOS users when it launched as an application a few months ago. It brought a breath of fresh air, allowing the people to share their most intimate and bizarre secrets without worrying about privacy and consequences.
Secret has now become it’s own community. Users can comment on every post, give advice, solve problems, bash, or laugh, but they do not know each other and there is no way for them to find out who hides behind an avatar.
