Yik Yak is taken advantage of because of the anonymous feature. This allows anyone to say anything about anyone without knowing who is actually saying these rude things about people. Colgate University uses Yik Yak in such a horrible way, in which to insult someone of their race. People are so quick to judge someone because of stereotypes that they grow up hearing. Some people take the anonymity choice to another level on Yik Yak. I believe that people shouldn’t have a choice in choosing to be anonymous or not. If you want to say something about someone you should approach them about it. You should not bash them on a website that is public, that everyone around the world can see and hear. It is embarrassing, rude, and can ruin someone’s life drastically. People will start to look at the person who is being bashed differently and can make this person feel very uncomfortable. Nobody should feel uncomfortable to go to school or walk in public because of the way someone else feels about them. Nobody should be allowed to talk bad about someone else publicly, especially anonymously.
