“Anomo” was featured on NewsWatch as part of its monthly AppWatch, which features the latest and coolest mobile applications on the iOS, Android, and Windows markets. Andrew Tropeano, a mobile technology expert and host of NewsWatch, conducted the app review and shared with viewers how it allows users to interact with other people anonymously.
When the internet first came around and sites like AOL were popular, users were anonymous behind usernames. Then social media sites like Facebook changed all that, putting a user’s full identity and physical appearance front and center. A social network called Anomo is bringing anonymity back by connecting users with new people based on common interests, not physical appearance.
Upon downloading the app, users setup their profile and list their interests, gender, and age. Aside from those items, they don’t have to list more than they’re comfortable with. Then the app finds four people that have similar interests and are in the same age range to play an icebreaker game. Icebreakers are a multiple choice “get to know” game. If users have common answers, they can chat and see if there are more common interests.
Eventually, users can reveal more about themselves, forexample their job or a photo. They can also make public posts, comment on photos, and meet people using the GPS locator.
The network started out in January and has seen hundreds of thousands of downloads and users. It’s free and available for iOS and Android devices. To learn more or try it out, visit http://www.anomo.com or search “Anomo” in the Appstore today.
