What is it?
You've seen the #Sarahah on Twitter. You've seen people talk about it on Reddit and Facebook. Its time to finally know what it is.
Sarahah means 'Honesty' in Arabic, and it was made by Saudi developer Zain al-Abidin Tawfiq in 2016. In the beginning it was only available on the web, but recently an Android and iOS app came out, and it went viral.
Sarahah is actually pretty simple to explain. It started as a web platform where you could create your profile. On this profile anyone could write you anonymous private messages. The aim was to provide the users with a work feedback tool, to identify areas of improvement.
While the concept is not new at all (think of Ask.FM and Kik), Sarahah managed to become the app of the moment in few months. The reason is that this is not about questions or about anonymous chatrooms. This is about anonymous private feedback. You can write secret messages to any person who has a profile there.
The problem that these anonymous feedback services usually have is always the same. Its easy to become a den of trolls and cyberbullies. Will Sarahah be able to overcome this?
So far, users report receiving either extremely positive or extremely negative messages. Only time will tell if it will last, or if it will end up like all the other anonymous messaging platforms (shut-down).
How do I connect it to my Snapchat account?
Everyone is asking about how you "connect" or "link" your Snapchat account to Sarahah. As far as we know that is no official integration, what we have is the possibility of sharing your Sarahah link. You can do this by pressing the paperclip option after taking your Snap, and pasting your Sarahah URL. Remember to wait for the page to load though.
