If you’re active on famous social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat etc you probably must’ve seen at least one screenshot of the app. That should be enough to give you an idea to what the app’s about.
What is Sarahah and how to use it?
Sarah is an App, that allows you to send anonymous messages/questions to other users. However this idea isn’t unique or new, as AskFM already has done this however Sarahah, although late to the party – managed to gain more attention than AskFM in short time!
The app was created by a Saudi, hence the name Sarahah which means “ Honesty “ in Arabic. He created the app with the intention of allowing users to receive HONEST anonymous constructive criticism. Honesty doesn’t always mean positive and to avoid damaging your relation with that person, you might not say it to their face. This is where this app comes in handy, as it allows you to do just that without revealing your identity at all!
Although Sarahah was made for constructive criticisms, it is being used for other reasons than it was actually made for, such as cyber-bullying, racist comments etc. If you know you’re sensitive and won’t be able to handle bad remarks, don’t bother installing this app.
