Can you keep a secret?

Can you keep a secret? People have a need to share.  The group Improv Everywhere created a great video (video below) about our continual need to share.  I want to take a moment and talk about the need to share secrets.  Do you share secrets?  How do you share?  Do you post on blogs anonymously?  

PostSecretMaybe you write your secret on a postcard and mail it to 13345 Copper Ridge Road, Germantown, MD 20874.  Did you know that many people have sent in their secrets.  Frank Warren has been receiving postcards for years, scanning them and posting them on the Blog for the world to enjoy.  Frank has taken many of the submissions and turned them into a hardcover book (Available at Amazon).

Secret Speak FreelyNow there is an app that lets you share your secret with the world.

secret shared

Secret.ly is an app that is currently only available for iPhones.  People can post text and images they want the world to know about.

 

The difference between PostSecret and Secret.ly is that with a postcard the medium does not contain much information.  There is your originating post mark that would locate the sending location.  With Secret.ly the app is on your phone, and the company uses your cell number to verify you.  If you want something to remain secret, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF!
