/// Why Should You Care About Whisper, the Secret-Sharing App That VCs Are Pouring Money Into?
Whisper makes a mobile app where people anonymously post their secrets in the form of text overlaying a picture. Users can then privately or publicly respond to a post. It’s not really a social network, because there’s no such thing as a Whisper user profile. Sounds like your basic flimsy mobile startup, right? Moderately interesting premise — but who has time for that when there are oh-so-many others? Yet Whisper has seen rapid growth, intense daily usage, and just raised $21 million in Series B funding from Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Ventures and Trinity Ventures with a valuation of $76 million
