Yapper is Yik Yak with Integrity and Social Radar with Privacy. Started in June 2013 by 3 GWU MBA Students, Yapper is the only hyper-local and ephemeral messaging mobile app on the market. Not only do App users lack ways to find out what is going on around them especially when moving to a new city, job, school, neighborhood, or when traveling abroad, they are frustrated by the permanence and invasiveness of traditional social media. Our competitors invade your privacy by sharing your exact location on a map or by letting users bully and hide behind anonymous profiles. Yapper is what’s going on right here and right now by connecting your real profile to your physical community through chats that are broadcasted to users within a 5-block radius. The chats delete after 30 minutes. Yapper allows you to see what is going on around you rather than who is around you and does not share any information about you without personal approval, and your specific location is never revealed on Yapper.
