Quoted: Secret's even worse idea

“After enjoying our inside jokes, updates and secrets in our Den over the last month, we’re confident that any company will love having one of its own.”

Blog post from San Francisco-based Secret, the anonymous social networking app run by folks who apparently have never had anyone talk smack about them behind their back, smugly announcing its latest feature, Secret Dens. With Dens, companies can set up their own Secret network so employees can gossip about co-workers,  complain about their bosses and rail against their company (because really, is Secret used for anything else?). At least Dens will keep HR departments busy. Next up: Dens for schools that don’t have quite enough campus bullying.
