Yik Yak App Review

Yik Yak is a social networking smartphone app that debuted in 2013 and was redesigned in 2021. It's only available for iOS and lets you create and view conversation threads within a 5-mile radius.

In 2013 this app swept the America, becoming popular on college campuses and middle and high schools. Within a 5-mile radius of their location, users may submit messages anonymously on the app's platform. Users could vote for or against the notes. Yik Yak, the anonymous messaging app that the government shut down four years ago after receiving numerous accusations that it encouraged bigotry, discrimination, and threats of violence on college campuses, has resurfaced.

After an untimely demise in 2017, the anonymous gossip app was resurfaced on the iOS App Store under new management, sparking renewed interest in the long-dead social network. With a reputation for rampant cyberbullying and harassment, the app's collapse was primarily due to moderation issues.

Whats new in Yik Yak?

A sidebar within the new app directs users to "keep safe" sites that cover a variety of concerns that may occur on the app, including ridesharing, bullying, sexual consent, and COVID-19. However, the app does not currently have specific misleading policies.

Another part in the sidebar provides a list of mental health services and urges users to downvote and report any bullying on the app so that the Yik Yak staff may evaluate it. The business claims to immediately delete yaks with five or more downvotes from the app's feed. Still, we've requested additional information about its content moderation plans, including if a team at Yik Yak is devoted to the task.

The new Yik Yak is focused on location-based sharing, allowing users to send messages, known as "yaks," to anybody within a five-mile radius. If you're in a remote or otherwise peaceful region free of yaks, you can entertain yourself by reading the confessions that appear on a chart of popular national postings.

Is Yik Yak Safe?

Being aware of the difficulties that will undoubtedly develop on a social network and being prepared to regulate those issues on a large scale are two very different ideas. Yik Yak is anonymous, but it's also an app that focuses on what's going on in real life within a certain radius, which may make moderating much more difficult.

For the time being, many of the highest-ranking posts are eager discussion about the app's comeback from former Yik Yak enthusiasts — primarily younger millennials who've graduated from college. However, a sprinkling of popular postings cautions that Gen Z-ers who were too young to utilize Yik Yak while it was at its peak will have no idea what hit them.
