Share your most private feelings whilst keeping your anonymity!
Whisper is messaging app that allows you to send secret messages. It was a great initiative, following the idea that people tend to say the truth in anonymous messages and when they don't have to reveal who they are. Whisper has great success: the application reaches more than 3 billion page-views per month. It has a free mobile phone version and a paid online service. Whisper is really easy and intuitive: you just have to post the sentence you want, superimposed over an image.
Send messages in an anonymous way
We have to differentiate this application from dating style ones. You won’t meet new people or start a relationship because they are anonymous sentences. It is true that they can be answered by a public post or in a private pseudonymous chat. However, users don’t publish their personal information or identity in Whisper, so nobody will know who you are. Perhaps for this reason, it is trending in college campuses especially in Arizona State University, Ohio State University, Pennsylvania State University and University of Florida, amongst others.
WhisperText LLC, Whisper’s developer, has declared that the main intention of this application is to combat and to prevent cyberbullying. In addition, the company has created Your Voice service, which provides support and resources for those college students that suffer depression, anxiety, stress or eating disorders, amongst others. They also try to help people that are dealing with sexuality and LGBTQ issues. We have to remember that the main feature of this messaging application is its anonymity, which helps people to tell secrets without worrying about what others will think about them.
How this application works
Whisper is not a really a difficult to use application, but you can feel a bit lost when you download it and run it for the very first time. You can choose the image you want among its large selection and write your text with its creative fonts. In addition, you can connect with other users just sending them private messages or responding to them with another photo. You can also type any topic that you like and browse it to know what other users have said about it.
Whisper's main interface is divided into three different columns: Popular, Latest and Nearby. The first one shows you what’s trending on the app and what other users like most. The “Latest” section shows you, as its name suggests, the most recent Whispers that people have uploaded. Finally, the last section allows you to switch on the localization feature that lets you know what other people near you have uploaded. This geo-localization feature can be enabled and disabled whenever you want!
On the top-lefthand side of the interface, you have the menu that shows you three main sections: Home, My Activity, Inbox and Settings. You can also establish a pin code to keep a stronger anonymity in the “Settings” section. In addition, you can able or disable the notifications, read the FAQ or order an email support.
