Student Confessional Site TerpSecret: ‘Pour Your Heart Out. Or Just Talk Sh*t.’ (@TerpSecret #UMD)

The latest student-specific anonymous sharing site is TerpSecret.  Geared toward University of Maryland students, the tagline states simply: “Pour Your Heart Out. Or Just Talk Sh*t. Whatever Works.

It crossed The Washington Post‘s radar at the start of the month.  As a WP blog post explains, “[L]aunched by University of Maryland sophomore Sarah Tincher . . . TerpSecret allows UMd students– or really anyone– to anonymously share secrets about their lives.  Students can click on a page, enter their name (or fake name), e-mail address (or fake e-mail address) and type up a secret. Tincher then posts the secrets for mass brooding.”

Here is a screenshot sampling of TerpSecret posts:
