Fresh on the news that Silicon Valley anonymous darling Secret is shutting down, a new startup from Dayton Ohio thinks they have the key to leveraging the power of anonymity. We first saw Famafox at TechCrunch Disrupt New York last week, just as they were preparing for their global launch.
In an interview with Nibletz.com the Famafox team explains that basically people get endorsed by other people that know them on the Famafox network so that they can remain anonymous but have some sort of klout type ranking.
Famafox founder Charlie Carroll explained the entire process to us which made sense. He also said that his own children wouldn’t take advice from him in regards to sports despite being a professional athlete, under the anonymity of Famafox he can deliver that advice and be endorsed without revealing his true identity.
Could this be the key to a good anonymous app?
