YIK YAK HUB (now defunct!)
Yik Yak was an anonymous social media app available for iOS and Android. It allows people to anonymously create and view posts within a 10 mile radius. This makes it different from other anonymous sharing apps such as PostSecret and Whisper. It is important for parents to know that kids must be at least 17 years old to download and use Yik Yak.
