The social network where no one knows your name

It’s a new social network called Social Number, lists users by a number, not by name. It's the latest and greatest thing in an ongoing debate about being online and anonymous. The CEO of the company sees it as a complement to open social networking. Users say they appreciate being able to talk freely without fear of being judged. You can discuss anything and everything. You have a message board that you post questions and other people on that website can respond to that thread. Social Number users say they find value in being able to openly talk about sensitive topics without worrying about alienating or offending anyone. You have a message board that you post questions and other people on that website can respond to that thread. I think this a good thing to have, where people can express their feelings without having feedback from other people that they know mainly so they don’t offend them. You can talk about how to deal with a bad boss, politics, jobs, friends, the ups and the downs of life al can be discussed here without having your name put on a social network. This is also good for people who want to vent and have other people’s opinion. Another good thing about this anonymous social network is that there is no bullying or threats. For some people expressing your political views on a social network will get attacked by people who are friends with them. As we all have a freedom of speech, I don’t believe that anyone should be ‘attacked’ because they have their own opinion. http://www.cnn.com/2013/01/29/tech/social-media/social-number-anonymous/index.html?hpt=li_c2
