Another social media application, as if we needed any more, is on the rise and it’s called Yik Yak (ew). Once you get past the fugly name and fuglier logo, it’s mildly entertaining. It’s kind of like Reddit and Twitter combined; you can read and post anonymous statuses from people in your area and vote them down or up. If you’re still in college it’s pretty funny because your feed mostly consists of people talking shit about professors and frat boys you probably know. If you live in a big city it’s just a random assortment of musings from people that have no friends. It’s def not our favorite, but we’ll pretty much welcome anything that distracts us from doing actual work.
