We all know that misery enjoys company, so the creative team at Vent came up with a fresh new way to connect with people through an anonymous persona, be entertained and widen the restrictive parameters that users place on themselves when interacting through other forms of social media.
“We all have our frustrations and sometimes we just need to get it off our chest, have someone listen, and carry on without offending everyone we know,” says Vent Co-Founder Dean Serroni.
The idea behind the app is simple yet effective: give users a chance to share their frustrations with the world and be able to get on with their day without having to worry if they have offended someone.
“The rise in social media penetration throughout the world, and its growing effects on our everyday lives has resulted in a desire to express our true emotions in an honest way without having an adequate virtual space to do so,” says Vent Co-Founder Duncan Turner.
According to the Pew Research Center, social media use in the US among all Internet users has increased dramatically from 29% in 2008, to 72% in 2013.
In its current form, the Vent app is one of the most emotionally effective and fun applications on the market. The platform’s massively entertaining feed — constantly refreshed with new heartfelt, insightful and at times hilarious complaints about anything and everything — can place life in perspective for the user who in the end may not need to vent after all.
Instead of ranting on Twitter or Facebook – where people know who you are and don’t want to hear about it, you can now unleash to a group of like-minded people who are happy to help you get it off your chest.
Vent is a social app that lets you share your frustrations without the fear of being de-friended, called into the principal’s office or upsetting your boss.
