People have become obsessed with the app, to the point that it has become their ‘MOST TRENDING’ conversation on Twitter, Facebook and all other social apps.
However, as with all things that go down in Pakistan, the social app is causing alot of disturbance to some people who ACTUALLY wanted to have fun let friends be honest with them about their flaws, strengths, weaknesses, etc.
Instead, boys have chosen to ‘cyber-harrass’ girls they liked, making it a way of saying things without revealing their identities. It could be your best friend, it could be someone you don’t know, someone you know really well, and so forth.
Over 10 million downloads on Google’s Play Store in less than a month and still counting… Sarahah app’s craze, particularly among teens, has taken everyone by surprise. The app seems to have suddenly become everyone’s favourite, especially in India.
For those who still do not know what we are talking about, it is an app that, according to the developers, “helps people self-develop by receiving constructive anonymous feedback.” Sarahah, which means ‘honesty’ in Arabic, was originally built to receive constructive feedbacks from the employees within the organization. But, with its growing popularity, the developers decided to launch it as an app for everyone and are still working on upgrading it.

If you have been active on social media, especially Facebook recently, you could not have escaped the current sensation called Sarahah. A messaging app unlike any other, it enables users to share messages with others, anonymously.

In fact, the app has been criticised for paving the way for cyber bullying. So, at a time when social media giants like Twitter are battling the
From secret crushes to horrible bosses, people are always wishing for ways to vent on someone without breaking the status quo in real life. Well, help is here.
The Sarahah anonymous messaging app provides a platform to search for users, express one’s feelings much easily and anonymously, and end it there.
It was designed as a self-development app, but with the increasing numbers of cases of cyber-stalking and trolling it remains to be seen if this app, which has been making waves in the last few days in India, is the best thing for iOS and Android users.
Remember Orkut’s testimonials? Where a friend can post what they feel about us and we are left feeling good for the rest of the day? We did see this concept used in sayat.me, and maybe a few more websites. But if the feedback is negative, could be from anyone, it could hurt users with anxiety
