San Francisco, CA –
November 14, 2014 (PRWEB) November 18, 2014 -- For the past seven years, more than 20M people a month have been discussing these things on Experience Project, an anonymous network for sharing life experiences. Today, the site announced the launch of its mobile app, called MeToo, bringing its 46M anonymous life stories to Android and iOS.
“The goal of MeToo is to connect around stuff that matters,” Community Lead Arsineh Ghazarian explained. “People get to know one another from the inside out, rather than the other way around. It’s deeper than just having shared tastes in music or movies.”
MeToo can be thought of as a virtual quilt of one’s most sacred experiences, thoughts, fears, and dreams. People build Pinterest-like profiles, capturing the experiences they’ve been through, lessons they’ve learned, and questions they may still be pondering. Other users say “MeToo” to things that they can relate to, leading to conversations that go beyond surface-level interests.
Though anonymous social networks like Secret and Whisper have gained significant popularity over the last year, MeToo’s aim is not to be a megaphone for confessions.
“MeToo is about finding people who get you,” Berjikly explains. “We’ve enabled over 35M friendships, bringing together people from different countries, beliefs, statuses, and walks of life. It’s about fostering genuine relationships around things that matter.”
One example of this mission’s success is the strong contingent of over 200K military spouses and family members who gather daily on the network to talk about their loved ones in the armed forces. They unite around the highs and lows of being ‘left behind’, share ways to cope, and tell one another stories of reuniting. They cheer one another on and build real, meaningful friendships.
Topics on MeToo can range from surviving breast cancer to still being in love with an ex. People share stories about stigmatized issues like mental illness, sexuality, and addictions, or connect around more light-hearted topics like finding a new job, getting in shape, or hearing someone say ‘I love you’ for the first time. No matter what the topic, many members find delight in seeing that there’s someone there to say ‘Me Too.’
