If you haven’t heard of the app “Yik Yak,” yet…believe us, you will. The app is currently taking over college campuses all over the country and with good reason.
Essentially the app allows for you to post anonymous messages to everyone within a 1.5 mile radius, ideal for colleges where everyone lives pretty d*mn close to each other. Sure, there’s been a lot backlash about cyber bulling but overall we believe the app can be used for great purposes… When you’re doing it right, that is.
Here at COED believe we have a firm grasp on what to do and not to do when it comes to social media, as you know from our 10 Commandments of Tinder and 10 Commandments of Instagram. So, without further adieu, Check out COED’s 10 Yik Yak commandments…
#1: Thou shalt ask for advice from your fellow Yakkers.
#2: Thou shalt freely admit shady stuff that you wouldn’t ever own up to in person.
#3: Thou shalt not use Yik Yak to hook up. It’s one thing to holler, another thing altogether to follow through.
#4: Thou shalt turn off locations if you’re talking about drugs.
#5: Thou shalt stop complaining on Yik Yak about how you never have sex.
#6: Thou shalt not reveal the location of parties. Cops use technology too.
#7: Thou shalt post ratchet sh*t going down as it’s happening. People want to see that.
#8: Thou shalt always downvote things about your boys. Especially if it makes them look good.
#9: Thou shalt never take direct shots at someone… unless that someone is in Pike.
