Edinburgh-based company Spraffl has launched a social media network app where users are anonymous and obviates the need to spend time on building networks.
Apparently in Scotland the word ‘spraff’ is a slang term for chit-chat and the geoloaction app is available on Android and the AppStore. It means ‘Spraffers’ can enter a conversation without the need to identify themselves to others on the network.
This is either genius or creepy and one that could be open to abuse, but the people behind it are confident they can filter out any idiots. It allow users to flag specific “Spraffs” as abusive. Three or more abusive reports automatically removes a Spraff, and if a Spraffer does this three times they will be removed from the network.
Jay Feeney, co-founder and CEO of Spraffl explains: “Anonymity has been an important part of the way we communicate over the centuries and we think that the Revolution will be Personalised!
“We’re ready to ditch the baggage of identity and Spraffl means there are no people to follow, no check-ins required, no badges, no points, just pure and immediate conversation,” said Jay Feeney, Co-Founder and CEO of Spraffl.
This is all very well, but now all I can do is think about Spraffl, Sprafflers, Spraffs and all types of Spraffy stuff.
