'We The People' is an app that invites neighbors to voice their political views incognito

The app ‘We The People’ lets neighbors anonymously discuss politics based on where they are located. Additionally, it shows voters which candidates are winning support in their districts and displays regular election updates.

 

While privacy on social media is heavily debated, the number of anonymous messages boards has increased exponentially the past two years. Of millennials, 46% worry that people will learn too much about their personal life online. ‘We The People’ and competitors like ‘Yik Yak’ and office-chat app ‘Blind’ are derivatives of original message boards like Reddit and 4chan which are leaders of the online privacy movement. In the future, privacy apps are looking to add several levels of encryption to its services—taking a stand against corporate and government surveillance.
