We once have been asked why we consider anonymous messaging as important. The answer to that is that we don't think that anonymous messaging itself is important.
What we as a company believe in is that it is important, especially for teenagers, to communicate with other people - also those, that are not in your inner circle. With growing rates of social anxiety, anonymity is a great option to talk to others, starting a conversation while slowly reducing concerns like fear of rejection to finally reveal oneself resulting in the creation of new friendships and sometimes also loves.
This is what we had in mind when creating Tellonym and where we are going to focus product development on. Even if our product currently doesn't offer the ability to reveal oneself, users find other ways of doing exactly that. Getting hundreds of messages every day, thanking us for creating new friendships and enabling relationships are showing that - and, are a huge motivation for us to keep doing what we love: Building an awesome product for the new generation.
So, to answer the initial question: We don't know why the world needs 'yet another anonymous messaging app' but we also don't think about it since we are not.
Tellonym is an app that allows you to engage with relevant people. It's a platform that allows you to communicate without thinking about social anxiety and enables you to make new friends. Tellonym is a whole new category of platform and an established social phenomenon.
