@ShaanVP did an awesome AMA on Reddit a few weeks ago - http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1okujq/iama_the_ceo_of_bebo_a_social_network_that_we/
My first question for Shaan: What's the most surprising thing you've found since you launched Boya in November?
Three things come to mind:
1. More people ask questions than I would have guessed (25% of users who sign up, ask someone else a question)
2. People are sharing things that I assumed they would only share if it was anonymous (eg. https://boya.com/Hanagren15)
3. Users don't behave like we expected them to (duh). For example - they find joy in writing "I love my wife!", although that's not necessarily 'blogworthy' in the traditional sense.
Interesting. I've also seen very revealing, vulnerable stories shared on Boya. I can't help but see similarities with Whisper in terms of the emotional needs it fill but in very different ways.
