Inaka Product Review: Whisper
Whisper was built from the ground up – including servers, administration, iOS application, and hosting – in only three months. And now, just as quickly, it’s taking high schools and college campuses by storm. It’s the fastest-growing social network in the iTunes app store, and as of May 2013, it boasted over 2 million users.
Here’s how it works: users share secrets, or "whispers," by selecting a picture either from their own device or Whisper’s extensive image library. They then add text and an optional filter before uploading it. There’s no search function, but whispers can be sorted by recent, popular, or nearby.
Since users have full control of its content, Whisper is ever-evolving. The stylized, postcard-like images range from deeply personal secrets to flirty, light-hearted classifieds, but – because Whisper makes anonymity and privacy a priority – they’re all safe.
To limit contact information and secure user anonymity, Whisper log-ins are comprised of a username and PIN. Email addresses, real names, and phone numbers remain secure, and not even the username is displayed prominently within the app. Eliminating the search function serves an additional measure to keep users safe and secure, as past whispers can be hard to find unless they’ve been tagged.
To interact, users can "like" a whisper or create a public reply. When enabled, direct messaging is also available for a small fee.
With Whisper, it's possible to receive the cathartic benefits of sharing a secret while remaining truly anonymous. Users are free to share any and all emotions with others, without the consequences of sharing too much on a more public social network. They can be known without being known, because in Whisper, their secrets are safe.
