In this blog read how, Yolo Anonymous questions app owners making huge amount of money by creating new sensation in teens and also know how Coruscate Solutions can help to create your own Yolo like App.

The anonymous question asking the app is a new sensation among people of all ages, mostly the teens. The best of being anonymous while doing something is there is no one to judge you as no one knows it was you! The anonymous apps are becoming more and more popular as people are getting an environment to express themselves or ask and respond freely. As it is said, when you give a man a mask, he will show you his true face.

There are many apps which have the concept of allowing anonymous interactions. Below are a few examples:

Sarahah:

Sarahah means honesty or frankness. It was created by Zain-Alabdin Tawfiq, a Saudi Arabian developer. It reached a sudden worldwide success by mid-2017. This growth is sometimes related to the Snapchat feature that came up which allowed the users to share Url.

The Sarahah app allows people to text each other messages anonymously. The app enables a person to create a profile and works as an add-on to the popular Snapchat. It lets the users connect with their friends and co-workers and send anonymous messages to them. Users can even search for any username and send anonymous messages to anyone.

However, due to the misuse of the app for spreading negativity and abusive messages, the app was deleted from the App store and Play store as well.

YikYak:

Yik Yak was launched in the year 2013. The anonymous app was available for iOS and Android phones and enabled people to create and view discussion threads within their 8 km or 5-mile radius. The app was founded by Tyler Droll and Brooks Buffington. In the year 2014, the app was the 9th most downloaded app in the US. The users had the ability to write, respond and vote up or vote down for whatever they liked or disliked.

But later on, in the coming years, it experienced great declining popularity and it ceased to function in May 2017.

Whisper:

Whisper is a free app available across 187 countries. It is a form of anonymous question app where the users are allowed to share photos and video messages anonymously. The postings are called whispers. They are the text messages superimposed over an image and the background image is either automatically retrieved from Whisper’s search or uploaded by the user. The app was co-founded by CEO Michael Heyward and Brad Brooks. According to a report from TechCrunch, Whisper has more than 17 billion monthly page views.

Omegle:

Omegle is one of the oldest but most popular. People can talk to strangers in one-on-one chat sessions. And unlike the web version, operating an app requires one to create an account by entering the username and email. Since the things are not verified, one can freely use whatever one wants to. Once logged in, the app pairs one-on-one chat sessions automatically. But the features like filter by gender, video chat, etc are only available after payments.
While checking out all these apps to ask questions anonymously, there is another teen sensation trending in the US. The anonymous question- asking app YOLO has reached to the top of the trending apps and is ranking first within just a week of launching.

The YOLO app is built on Snap Kit platform and uses Snapchat for login. The app allows Bitmoji profile pics to let you add an “ask me anything” sticker to the Snapchat story. Your friends can oper YOLO on their iOS platforms just with a swipe and can send an anonymous question. You can answer the question with another sticker posted to your story.

Considering the Sarahah failure, YOLO app has a warning during the signup which states it has no tolerance for objectionable content and abusive users. The app also has app-flagging and blocking features available to protect users from misuse and play safer to keep away from Apple and Google’s wrath.

According to recent news in TechCrunch, The YOLO app is developed by Popshow, both of which were started by Gregoire Henrion. He was also a former co-founder and CEO of music video making app Mindie. What comes as a surprise is that the founders were not expecting the anonymous question app to be such a huge success as they were just trying it out.

YOLO is actually not completely anonymous. It allows users to review the questions privately. And it also enables the users to decide what they want to answer and who to share the content with via Snapchat. They can even include a selfie if they want to tell who is on the other side. The motive behind this app is to just unlock the super good behaviors of people and make them more empathetic towards each other and feel less judged.
