Having spoke to Bal and Bray, I get the impression this app isn't quite as widespread as I first thought, but it's pretty much the talk of my university at the moment.

Yik Yak is an anonymous social media app which allows people anonymously to create and view "Yaks" (which are essentially just witty posts) within a 10 mile radius. It's particularly amusing when you are using it at University, there are so many relatable little one-liners on there about the stickiness of club floors, certain nightclubs etc.

The most recent post that amused me on mine reading: "Emailing for an extension on my dissertation because Zayn left 1D and how can I be expected to get anything done now?" - so it's basically just an anonymous witty posts ground.

Anyone been using it or at least heard of it? As I said, it's the talk of our university at the moment so I imagine it's going to continue to spread, funny app to pass the time.

It's popular here. When we had a blackout the other month it was on FIRE. So funny. Away from Uni towns the Yak game is a bit shit tho.

St A's is pretty funny most of the time. A fair few people takin the piss out the stereotypes that come with St Andrews. The live Yakking of an entire lecture theatre falling asleep with boredom was quality.

Oh god this happen a couple months ago at my school! Blew up so quickly then died within a week, although I was under the impression it was within a 1 mile radius which is why it died over the weekend when people weren't at school. Was pretty much used to slag people off/humiliate them as well as some funny relatable banter.

Just downloaded it and it's amazing and I'm upvoting loads of things because they're so funny but half the statuses are about uni students going home. ARGH.

I had seen several good ones on funny facebook posts and had checked out what it was a week or so ago but thanks for providing the impulse to get this into my life.

I downloaded this a while ago and found it to be a bit shit but it is much more entertaining at uni. Especially as other first year maths students seem to make up the majority of its users here.

OMG I've just been on this for the first time in ages due to the return of Uni and WTF have they done to it?! My herd seems SO dead now that they've completely removed the option of anonymity, which seemed to be its charm and USP. Now it just appears to be a poundland version of Twitter. Boo.

Loads of us had this last year at school - people ended up posting rumours about people on it so we all had to delete it eventually (nobody deleted it but the hype kind of died down)

They listened to the people and brought back the anonymous option! cheer.gif The one for my Uni has suddenly come alive again the past couple of days.
