A new app called Sarahah is going viral worldwide for its promise to let people tell each other what they think of them anonymously and without fear of reprisal. The app is designed to help people improve themselves based on feedback others may find too blunt to convey in person. It was initially positioned as a workplace tool but is growing in popularity with casual users worldwide. Messages sent to everyone on the network are completely private, and the recipient can reply, flag, delete or favorite them without the sender’s knowledge.

Concerns have been raised that the app could be abused to bully people, and the developers recently added a blocking feature that prevents abusive users from messaging you after you block them. If you are willing to hear what people have to say to you when there are no social barriers, you can try Sarahah.

I have been blogging since August 2011. I have had over 10,000 visitors to my blog! My goal is to help people, and I have the knowledge and the passion to do this. I love to travel, dance, and play volleyball. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I started writing my blogs when I lived in California. I would wake up in the middle of the night and write something while listening to music and looking at the ocean. When I moved to Texas, I found a new place to write. I would sit in my backyard while everyone else was at work, and I could write all day.
