The popularity of Sarahah stems from the fact that, for once, we can be honest with each other. But the sort of honesty involved in using Sarahah requires that we hide behind the mask of anonymity.
When the person you write to doesn’t know who you are, are you really honest? This is a question that has been asked more than a few times.
In fact, there’s always a larger probability that one would receive negative feedback than positive. This is because when you’re anonymous, you can say anything to a person, and since that person isn’t going to know who you are, you might as well say the bad stuff.
The truth is you could tell a girl to her face that she is beautiful, and she would take that as a compliment. It’s an honest truth. But it’s a compliment. And a positive feedback is always welcomed, because such is human nature.
But you’re never going to tell a girl that she is fat. Never in person. So when an app like Sarahah provides this kind of platform, you are more than likely to end up speaking from the heart. It would be an honest truth. But it would also be a negative feedback. And the recipient is going to get hurt.
So, the likeliness of receiving a negative feedback than a positive message on Sarahah is definitely more.
And when people start receiving such negative feedback, they take it to the Google Play store and give bad ratings and reviews to the Sarahah app.
Sarahah does not do anything bad. It is merely a platform to provide honest communication. But when the truth is revealed, people don’t like to take the blame. It’s so much easier to post a bad rep on the Play Store than improving oneself from these feedback.
The tagline of Sarahah is this: helping people self-develop by receiving constructive anonymous feedback.
When you receive negative feedback, don’t point your fingers at others or Sarahah. Point it at yourself. Think on it. And learn to adapt. Improve yourself on it. This is the purpose of Sarahah.
