Pando: Hot or Not founder responds to Nancy Jo Sales' new book: "I don’t think we invented human nature"
Nearly every tweet I’ve read about Nancy Jo Sales’ new book “American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers” has been some variation of “I’m scared to read this.” Indeed by page 20, I started making plans to move to an Amish village by the time my daughter turns 12. The deeper I read, the more I was impressed by many of the young women Sales interviewed, and the more sorry I felt that we've given them this world.  [...] Sales also describes how young girls worship Kim Kardashian and derive their self worth from how many likes they get on Instagram.

Fortune confirms that Secret’s anti-bullying system doesn’t work | PandoDaily
K Swisher "A stunt, but a good one" + - Frank Warren believes that new anonymous secret-sharing apps such as Secret and Whisper are unoriginal and potentially dangerous. [...] today anonymous communication services have become, to the surprise of many, big business. In July, the app Secret, popular within the San Francisco tech community, || Anonymous apps can learn from Chinese censors. No one knows how to scale real time "moderation" better than China. - << if a community can't police itself. it isn't a community. it is a random bunch of people (mostly priviledged & entitled white male) with ego's and status anxiety, residing in SV/SF under the eyes of the Patriarchy (VC's/Valley Boy's/ppl calling themselves "Elite") and scoop hungry wannabe tech journalists. || + Pando's Sarah Lacy

“I Lied To You A Few Days Ago": The Leak Messaging App And Anonymous Honesty | Fast Company | Business Innovation
[#FNAC] [ A reflection of personal values. And Marc Andreessen had his rant on twitter about it. ] "Leak’s creator, the facilitator of this budding paranoia, is a 25-year-old living in Paris named Laurent Desserrey. He says he wanted to create a “really positive and exciting tool.” A couple of friends helped Desserrey build Leak over a single weekend. It's simple. Users fill out a form with their recipient’s email address, their message, and whether they are a coworker, friend, friend-of-a-friend, family member, or “someone.” The concept was partly inspired by Secret, an app that allows users to post anonymous messages to their friends and friends of friends and fits into a neat trend of apps that allow expression without attribution. Whisper, Yik Yak, and Wut are just a few others." // & &
