Secret is a new social networking app that lets people post anonymous confessions. Users can post anything they want without revealing their real name.
The setup process for the app builds up a network based on existing contacts in your phone book. Posts will come from people in your contact list and friends of your friends.
Over the past few days, the app has gained some infamy for being used by Silicon Valley residents to trash each other anonymously.
It’s available for iPhone. So do you want to know more?
Enter your email address, phone number, and create a password. You'll be sent an email and text confirmation.
This is how you leave comments. The app will assign an icon to you every time you start a conversation.
Tap on the three dots located next to the bubble icon. This option lets you hide or report an inappropriate post.
This is where you write a Secret. You can upload a picture to create a background or just write a simple message.
This warning appears before you write a post. It will let you know the Secret will be shared anonymously with friends. If they like it, it can get shared with other people.
Go back to the main menu and click on the icon in the upper-left corner. This is where you'll be notified if someone comments on the Secret you post.
