The era of Yik Yak

There's this new app that has gotten popular very recently, and when you download it, you can send anonymous messages on a feed that anyone nearby can see.

This is a big issue in my high school because people are telling others to kill themselves, get a life, saying racial slurs, and making fun of them altogether, my school has blocked their WiFi because of it, and is taking strict measures against people who get caught using it.
I'm aware most of you guys are in college, is this affecting you?

I haven't heard of this, and nothing has been mentioned of it at my college, but I can see the problems that this could cause. I suppose people could just not download it or delete the app if they're getting bullied because of it though.
Apparently some high schools here have been having problems with it, people creating "bomb scares" and obviously trying to bully people with it.

People should just not download the app if they don't want to deal with that crap.

I guess like Pokemon said it's just about money.
Most people don't care as long as they can make it.

I'm not sure the concept of people's well being crossed their minds, sad to say.

This.

I never heard of this app, but it sounds similar to Formspring.
