The real marketing strategy that is being used by the company that the app is designed to give the honest feed back to the people in your circle without revealing your identity but to be honest, that to me is a complete bullshit. Nobody is actually going to use this app only for so called “honest feedback”.
Actually the meaning of the Sarahah app is honesty or ‘Candour’ in Arabic. The history of app is actually bit interesting, the app actually was made to be used as a feedback tool in a workplace but it took off when teens started using on Snapchat.
WHO IS BEHIND THE SARAHAH?
Sarahah App was launched by Saudi Arabian Developer named ZainAlabdin Tawfiq. According to him, the sole motto of the app was to share your honest opinions about someone without revealing actually who you are. You can do it with your friends and family whosoever have installed the app.
He further added, the app can help an individual to discover their strengths and weaknesses where they need to improve.
Earlier app was confined to only his office where employees used to give feedbacks to the other peers and managers privately. According to Zain Alabdin, he never expected that app would become so popular one day. In an interview he told, that the app’s only intention to give a feedback to motivate people but people might also start using it in a wrong. It really a matter of concern according to him.

Recently they have added like button to the app. If you receive a message from someone and you like what they said, you can simply save as favourite by giving it a like.
As, we talked the motto of the Sarahah is to help peers to know what others think about them, so that they can improve at workplace. Where outside workplace, when it comes to talking to friends or relatives secretly, you can simply share your feeling about them.
I don’t know what outcome is going to be. But it surely going to very interesting to get to know who actually sent you the message and much more. It certainly breaks the conventional way of communication that we use in our day to day life. We talk directly to whom we talking to.
