A new anonymous social networking site has been launched called, Social Number. This site gives users a chance to be anonymous and only identify themselves with a number and no name.
“The social network enables users to discuss freely topics such as politics, religion, office gossip, dating tips, substance abuse and other issues many may feel uncomfortable to openly discuss, without complete anonymity,” according to a company statement.
“Users log in with a number between six and 10 digits, and once signed up, they can join groups and send messages, etc.,” writes Upstart Business Journal’s Amora McDaniel. “Throughout it all, no one knows who you are. Other social media networks don’t see an anonymity problem online but rather an accountability problem. Sites like Facebook and YouTube encourage their users to use real names in an effort to promote transparency and not give people a platform for saying whatever they want without consequence.”
“It’s about freedom of speech,” Social Number CEO and co-founder “M.K.” said in a statement. “Today, there is very little privacy on any social network, resulting in employees being fired and government interrogations for free thinking. On Social Number, your number is your only identity, showcasing the true value of anonymity.”
