YouTell Provides Forum For Honest, Anonymous Opinions From Facebook Friends, Twitter Contacts

If you want to know what your friends really think, and you want them to speak freely, without the fear of damaging friendships, YouTell may have a solution for you.

YouTell is a free website that allows Facebook and Twitter users to post questions and receive anonymous answers from their friends and contacts, with the answers only mentioning whether the respondent is a friend, relative, or co-worker, and not revealing their identity.

The site also added a special section for political and election issues, with questions posted in that forum open to all users, and not just friends and contacts.

Daniel Singer, at the ripe old age of 13, is the co-founder of YouTell, and he came up with the idea and developed many of the site’s features and its overall online presence, as well as its layout and simple user interface. He said of the site:

YouTell was created to provide a forum for receiving anonymous, honest, useful feedback and to find out what people really think of you. We know that it is hard to say what you really feel on Facebook or Twitter, because you might worry about the response. With YouTell, there is finally a way online to get the truthful information and opinions that can actually make a difference and can help you improve various aspects of your life.

Readers: Would you be more likely to be brutally honest with a friend or relative, in a helpful way, if you could do so anonymously?
