Trueey - Culture Feature
I've always been ruled by the truth. I'm relentless in the pursuit of it, in all aspects of my life, and I've never held back at sharing my version of the truth, even on social media. I quickly learned that sharing my truth, or more simply, my opinion, pissed a lot of people off. Fast turning loose friends into counterparts. When disagreeing with a friend's opinion on any form of social media, the only option is to like or to comment, which can instantly turn a simple difference of opinion into a public confrontation for the whole internet to see. Twenty-first century problems, am I right?
Trueey is a platform for opinions, we all have them. I created Trueey because I couldn't find a better place on social media to share my opinions, freely and without judgement. It's a fun and easy way to share opinions, whether posting a statement or voting to agree/disagree on others. And the anonymity allows users to share truths that are likely not safe to share anywhere else on the web.
As more people use the platform, you can quickly find out a lot of interesting and surprising statistics that you might not find anywhere else. In other words, the truth.
