Social Media Site Allows People to be Anonymous

Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- SocialNumber.com is a social media website that allows people to post whatever they want about anything or anyone.  The twist with this site, however, is participants are not using names to post comments. They are given a number.

Social Number Inc., a Delaware based company, said it wants people to be able to express themselves freely.  For some parents this seems like it can lead to cyber-bullying.

"I think cyber-bullying without people knowing who they are they can take advantage of young children and even students their own age and peers and stuff," said Maryann Flores of Hebron, Md. "It's not a positive website in my opinion."

Michael Smigiel, a Salisbury University student, said he likes the idea of being anonymous with social media.

"I know for people my age if you want to post stuff on Facebook, your Facebook changes," he said. "I have my parents on there and I have to change what I type."
