Sarahah is like reading your BFF’s diary and finding all the mean stuff she said about you.
Suuuure, it’s seems all friendly from the ads, with people giving each other anonymous attagirls and pats on the back, but put it in the hands of some people and it’s only a matter of time before it becomes an evil bitching site for evil bitches.
Anonymous cyberbullying has got to be too tempting to resist. Didn’t anybody watch 13 Reasons Why?
Sarahah means “honesty” in Arabic – it’s a Saudi Arabian app originally designed for coworkers to give each other feedback – but who wants honesty from their friends? Especially when they’re totally anonymous and can say whatever they want about you?
There’s a risk vs reward situation here: maybe you’ll find out someone has a massive crush on you, but at the cost of someone else telling you that you have really bad BO. Actually… it’s probably better to learn that so you can buy some deodorant. Hmmm…
Nah, we’re sticking to the old-school way of finding out what our friends think – sneaking a look in their diary while they’re in the bathroom on a sleepover, then running home in tears.
