What if you could read your friend's private texts, the kind of texts people delete out of their sent and deleted messages, the kind of texts you break into your friends house to delete off their phone before they read them.

http://www.everydaytexts.com, a new website displaying private text messages, is getting hundreds of thousands of visits a day and spreading almost uncontrollably while officials struggle to find their words of disapproval in its wake.

The website is based off the idea that people send texts they later regret or that are so funny people want to share. "Have you ever sent a text you later wished you hadn't? Picture this - you're on your way home after a night out, you're in the back of a taxi, you're alone, you decide to scroll through your contacts and text whoever picks your fancy.... that's where it starts. We have all done it. At everyday texts we let people post those texts online for the amusement of others," says Dylan Adams, one of the creators of the site.

The site's About Page states: "What if you could read your friend's private texts, the kind of texts people delete out of their sent and deleted messages, the kind of texts you break into your friends house to delete off their phone before they read them."

http://www.everydaytexts.com is being described by web critics as "the website that gives a better insight into everyday life than any other social networking site."

The creation of the site is being lashed out at by Psychologists furiously across the nation due to its openness and lack of sugar coating about teenage lifestyles, relationships and work ethics.

"...the text's posted on the site are too crude and honest it could offend easily. I don't think it is wise or responsible for private texts to be allowed to be displayed. Actions are in motion to take the site down," says Psychologist Robert Aston.

When this concern was presented to one of the creators behind Everyday Texts, Dylan Adams he said, "Obviously we don't want to offend. But the realness and honesty in the texts is why people love it. They are anonymously posted and people don't like them they shouldn't go onto the site." When questioned about if he fears the controversy will force the site to be taken down, he dismissed the idea of that ever happening and responded with "We have found it's kind of like Marmite, you either love it or hate it. Lucky for us the vast majority of people love it and the site is growing at an incredible rate."

With all texts submitted by the public and little not put on the site in fear of offending, it has become a very addictively humourous and sometimes jaw dropping read.

So whether EverydayTexts.com makes you laugh or makes you delete your internet history, it's definitely getting uncontrollably huge and looks like it's going to be around for a while.

Here are what its users had to say:

"Facebook is getting boring and we need other things to look at on the web, I spent 3 hours on everydaytexts.com last night reading and submitting texts. At first no one knew about it but it was so explosive everyone seemed to be talking about it within a week of me first finding out about it." - Steve, 23 Years Old

"I have been telling my friends about it all the time since I found out about the site a week ago. It's just FUNNY. I can see that some older people might not find it funny but to your average teenager like me, it's priceless laughs." - David, 19 Years Old

"I like it because you can see what guys are texting each other, you're not going to find that anywhere else, unless you get to their phones before they wipe their texts!" - Stacey, 26 Years Old"
