Sarahah, the anonymous messaging app has been booted out of play store and app store, thanks to a petition.
Because of the anonymous nature of the app, Sarahah has become what users describe as “an app breeding suicides” and “a breeding ground for hate”.
The change.org petition was started by mother of a 13-year-old girl.
I have been scared, broken and sick to my stomach ever since I read messages about my 13-year-old daughter including, “I hope SHE KILLS HERSELF. Seriously nobody will care”. No one, especially our youth, should have to read messages like this about them.
Shows the power of a commoner. Maybe if more of us do it, social media will be a better place to hang around.
