The Sarahah messaging service has exploded in popularity. If you like in Europe or North America then this app probably feels like it came out of nowhere but the truth is that the service has been around for awhile. Sarahah messages began as a way for employees to provide anonymous feedback. However, this summer, the app took a more personal tone when the Android and iOS versions were released. Pretty much since day one Sarahah has enjoyed a spot near the top of both the Apple App Store and Google Play.
People love sending anonymous messages to each other. Look at any comment section on the internet where people don’t have to use their real names. Sarahah messages are the easiest way to send something completely anonymous to your friend, family member, co-worker, or neighbor. Of course, you may also get some messages back. Some of them may not be so nice. Although, if you are an awesome person then maybe you’ll get a lot of praise and this can be a great ego building tool. So, why not share those messages publicly to show how much love you’re getting? Sharing Sarahah messages is easy. Here’s what to do:
- Open the Sarahah app and make sure you’re logged in.
- Click the “Messages” icon at the bottom left.
- Now tap on “Received Messages.”
- Below an individual message will be a share icon.
- After tapping the share icon you will see all of the different ways you can share your message (Facebook, Whatsapp, etc.).
- You will be redirected to Facebook where you just have complete the post.
- You’re done!
See? Sharing Sarahah messages is quick and easy. It’s very much like how you would share content from other apps. Of course, there is some controversy surrounding Sarahah with some people concerned that the anonymous nature of the app makes it easy for teenagers to bully each other or share explicit content. Having once been a teenager myself at one point; I know that kids will find a way to share whatever they want. It’s either Sarahah messages or something else. Just make sure you don’t take some anonymous criticism too seriously. And, if you are the type to get upset over an anonymous message, perhaps this app isn’t for you.
