Founder In Focus: Michael Heyward Of Whisper

  • April 23, 2014

Over 3 billion page views a month. Man, who knew that we had so many secrets to share or that we would have such keen interest in hearing what we’re all afraid to say publicly? Michael Heyward, that’s who. Heyward is the Co-founder of Whisper, the mobile app that lets users post anonymously. Whispers, as…


Whispero.com – Share Your Secrets

  • January 12, 2012

Whispero.comWhat if you could network with people without having to reveal any kind of personal information? What if you could message others without having to disclose your email, or even your name? Would that give you the freedom to say things you usually wouldn’t say to anybody on a site like Facebook? Or would the fact of not really knowing who’s listening on the other side keep you from using the service at all?

It looks like we’re about to find it out, as Whispero is a site that lets you do exactly that. It lets you chat with other people without even disclosing who you are. All the people who interact on this site do it anonymously. You won’t have to sign in using your e-mail address, you won’t have to reveal your phone number. You won’t have to sign in using your Google, Facebook or Twitter account. Others would never know it’s you who are online, unless you choose to reveal some personally-identifiable information when chatting.

I think by now you know whether this is a service you would use or not. I guess those of you who do will mainly use Whispero to make catharsis, and rage against your bosses and colleagues. Which is just fine, although there are sites like FMyBoss and BitterBuzz that have been created specifically to let you do that.

ReJaw.com – Share With Friends

  • August 7, 2008

ReJaw.comYou can think of Rejaw.com like the Twitter for people who don’t like to use Twitter.

On the site, you’ll be able to share with your friends and the rest of the community. The whole micro-blogging thing is hot right now, and this site is taking advantage of it. After you create your account, you’ll be able to start adding friends who already use the service. This will allow you to start to either yell (share in the common page) or whisper (private messaging) within your friends’ network. The site is pretty easy to use, since it basically works off of the Twitter interface. The site is brand new, so current users are more than likely to find new features added as time goes on. On the whole, the site does work just like Twitter, but it could grow onto something a little different that fills a niche market.
