Does NGL APP have generated questions? 🤔 Thoughts

Here's wiro NGL app and this app right now is in top chart of the US app store, everyone is talking about it. Basically the idea is that you can get anonymous messages from your friends. You just copy this link, you share it on your Instagram story or Instagram by or just share it to friends and then you can receive all these messages in your inbox.

Some of the questions some people write here that they share it among their friends and they are quite suspicious that some of these questions can be actually generated. This user writes like I tried it and I could eventually tell that it generates its own questions.

My friends for sure were never asking me those. Also a few people also telling that these apps sends you fake questions that will send automated questions. That's basically that.

I'm also a bit suspicious because I received a lot of questions. First questions I received from I think really from my friends and then other questions seems some of them not were original. Because obviously if you share your link and you don't receive any messages at all, the engagement on this app will drop significantly and users won't be able to enjoy the app a lot.

Maybe there is like a gross hack or something from their team that may be like small percentage of the question. Maybe 10%, maybe 5%, I don't know, it's just a hypothesis, can be actually used by AI and some algorithm is generating some of these questions.

Okay, this is maybe original one but yeah, some of these questions like that I don't even know who of my friends would ask that. But it seems very generalistic and that's what would you expect to get in this app. Yeah, maybe it's some secret engagement boost but you are not able to tell that that's a trick. You are not able to tell.

But a lot of these apps these days have this trust issue. Like for example a lot of dating apps, they have a lot of bots which you think this is a real person. You start chatting and then it's like just AI content from some bots and just to boost engagement. Just be careful, don't believe everything. Still, this is just like an overview. I'm not telling anything 100%.

This is just a shot. There is no any evidence on that. This is just like what users write, what they feel like that they just share the link and they'll don't feel like any of their friends would leave this kind of comment. Anyhow hope it is helpful. Leave your thoughts in the comments and like the video.


Update: recently it was confirmed in a court filing between sendit and NGL, that these apps seems like are using AI to generate questions. They are doing it obviously to boost engagement in their apps.
