Being a SNiTCH is the new cool thing to do

This is what was said about SNiiTCH by webkak.com:

The concept seems so blatantly obvious, I had one of those, “why didn’t I think of that” moments. With Sniitch you can create an anonymous blog diary which anyone can read and comment on. Got any juicy secrets or criticisms you want to make, just Sniitch on them 😉

The advantage which Sniitch has over PostSecret is that it’s far easier to create, submit and find secrets. People can use this open forum to let off steam and obtain feedback in 3 areas (people, schools, companies). It’s got enormous viral potential and despite the ‘playful/innocent’ intentions of Sniitch, I wouldn’t be surprised to see lots of sociopathic bosses, cheating spouses, dubious corporate practises being exposed 🙂

SNiiTCH – Online Blog Diary

This is what was said about SNiiTCH by killerstartups.com:

Sniitch is a blog diary that is open to the public to read and participate in. Users may choose to “snitch on,” or post criticism, thoughts, and comments on three genres: people, schools, and companies. Users may also search posts on their topic that other site visitors have made. The concept is that site visitors may utilize this open forum to post their comments on the people, schools, and companies which they feel strongly about. Dialogue between users is encouraged through comment posts on previously posted Sniitches, hence allowing for the exchange of emotion and knowledge between users.

In their own words

“Welcome to Sniitch. Your public blog diary where you can write about anything and anyone. You are anonymous to the world but yet your blogs matter. They will be read, by a diverse audience of people from all around the world, waiting to read what you have to say. Have a juicy secret, dirt on a celebrity, witnessed a crime, want to give a shoutout to someone special, or just anything on your mind. Don’t keep it inside, share it with the world and set yourself free.”

Why it might be a killer

Potentially valuable knowledge for students and consumers is made available, as well as entertaining pieces of information to curious site surfers. Users can have fun with the site, while letting off steam and sharing information on topics that are of interest to them.

Some questions

Although users agree to use the site accurately, if there are users that abuse the site, could innocent people, schools, or companies be negatively affected by site posts? Conversely, could dishonest posts defend or state inaccurate information about an undeserving party? How would the site evolve if more users were to participate in the site and add content?
