The power of being anonymous

These days all what we say is attached to our persona. There are comments with value and posts really not useful at all, but what are the things people have on their minds and they can not say because they think is not appropriate or they do not have the courage to say it? How many things we do not know because they live just in somebody's mind but they are afraid of sharing it?

Social media brings the opportunity to access the knowledge or ideas of people in an easier way but these are not all their ideas and thoughts... how can we open that door? being anonymous has been always, from my perspective, a way to hide, a door for people who are not responsible, but is it? or our society limits our head just because the rules we have or we set up for us?

The power of being anonymous is getting bigger and bigger and that is why I started Droneme. A way to be anonymous to say what we can not... to express our selves completely, to really finishing sharing all what is on our heads.

There are sites like www.4chan.org in where we can be anonymous but all the content is categorized in such a way that we have to go through a trail of comments or discussions that are meaning less, so when we created Droneme we also were thinking in a way in where you can access info by topic or just by specific keywords without going through a mandatory path full of spam.

In Droneme.com users can say what they want to say without any registration and tagging their comments, so others can come and go directly to the piece of info they are looking for. How to use it?

Imagine you want to shout to the world how much you love, hate, care, or think about your boss, partner, mom, peer, friend... you just come here write whatever you want to post, tagg it and then... zaz!!! is shared with the world. Every post is shared not only within Droneme.com but also is shared on Twitter on one or multiple Droneme accounts like DMESanFrancisco or DMENewYork, depending also in your location so what you are sharing has a bigger audience...

Also you can come to Droneme.com and just go directly to find about you or the topics you want to know, for example I can go day after day or every 2 hours just to www.droneme.com/jorgeherrera+pfizer and find out what people are expressing about me... so I do not have to go to the home page and see others comments that are not related to me or I do not care... Imagine you go directly to www.droneme.com/google or www.dronemecom/ipad and see what people express about those brands or www.droneme.com/ciprinai and see what people are saying while they are on the restaurant or about the restaurant.... or I go to www.droneme.com/latino+blueshirt+newyork and see what people who I do not know is saying about me based on what I am wearing because they do not know my name.... Is like opening the door to everything and everybody...

finally we clear everything after 69 hours... why? because being anonymous should be just a stage, just for a period of time... giving the capability to all to know that what they are saying will be forgotten so they can feel a relive knowing that a trace wont be happening...

for all of those things I am sure droneme.com is key in today's social communications, for fun, for private conversations, to approach to somebody, to meet somebody, to release anxiety without secondary effects...

try it... we are just on the first iteration, knowing that we need to evolve based on people's needs but having on this first version a base line to growth and make from being anonymous the power to know more and have access to expanded knowledge.

Twitter and Facebook are key for social communications but they have the limits that we define in our heads... Droneme is the complement to do not stop saying everything we want to say
