Do you have a dirty little secret? Other Whisper users can then like, share, or reply to your secret — just like Facebook, except, you know, with total strangers.
The app functions as an emotional outlet. Users can post secrets in an attempt at catharsis, or in the hope that someone will message them so that they can engage in an anonymous conversation about whatever it is that is troubling them.

Whisper can also function as a kind of forum for people who want answers to their pressing questions. Whisper includes a search bar that allows you to filter secrets by topic.
If you were a sexually frustrated lurker, what would you do with an app that allows you to anonymously author posts that can be seen by anyone? Whisper is the kind of app that appeals to sex-crazed internet lurkers and fourteen-year-old boys desperately soliciting nudes. The last doofus I quoted could have at least double-checked their grammar.
Whisper was an app with potential. The anonymous sharing of questions and secrets with an open-minded audience can result in an immensely satisfying feeling of interpersonal connection. Whisper could have been a great place to share your secrets.
