Picked up one of their books from Waterstones today, as you would expect it's just like the website but in paper form.

Very cool book indeed, glad I spotted it.

Get them all. Good stuff.

The PostSecret iPhone App is Now Closed

It pains me to announce that the PostSecret App is now closed. In some ways, this is because of its success. It reached the top-selling spot in the App Store and users shared over 2 million creative secrets.

Like the PostSecret Blog, the App was designed so each secret was absolutely anonymous. Unfortunately, that absolute anonymity made it very challenging to permanently remove determined users with malicious intent.

99% of the secrets created were in the spirit of PostSecret. Unfortunately, the scale of secrets was so large that even 1% of bad content was overwhelming for our dedicated team of volunteer moderators who worked 24 hours a day 7 days a week removing content that was not just pornographic but also gruesome and at times threatening.

Bad content caused users to complain to me, Apple and the FBI. I was contacted by law enforcement about bad content on the App. Threats were made against users, moderators and my family. (Two specific threats were made that I am unable to talk about). As much as we tried, we were unable to maintain a bully-free environment. Weeks ago I had to remove the App from my daughter's phone.

Like many of you, I feel a great sense of loss from this decision but please know that we fought hard behind the scenes to find a permanent solution. We even tried prescreening 30,000 secrets a day. Deciding to remove the App from the App Store last week and holding back the release of the Android version cost us money but we feel it was the right thing to do.

To the vast majority of people who shared their earnest secrets and compassionate replies on the App, you inspired us with your honesty, humor and humanity. Even though this good faith experiment has come to an end what you shared lives on.

While the PostSecret App is now closed, PostSecret, and the PostSecret blog, are still very much open. Thanks for helping to keep the true spirit of PostSecret alive by mailing your secrets in 2012.

Sincerely,
-Frank Warren

Dear Frank,
Last week I posted a secret on the PostSecret App about how hurt my daughter was going to be on Christmas morning when she realized that she didn't get the one thing she wanted. Her ballerina jewelry box had been delivered to the wrong address and the people who received it kept it for themselves.



Someone named Hayley in Pennsylvania read my secret and searched for me via her own secret because she had lost track of my post. Other people read her post and worked hard to make sure that I got Hayley's message. Hayley found me and we talked early Friday morning. I gave her my address and she purchased a ballerina jewelry box for my daughter. I was shocked when it was delivered the very next day. It was on time for Christmas and my daughter absolutely loved it.



She's four and when she saw that the box played music and that the ballerina spun around she almost started crying because she was so happy. It's all because of you Frank. You and your wonderful work that you do bringing strangers together. Without the PostSecret App, my daughter would have missed out on something that has meant the world to her and me. I can't thank you and Hayley enough. Please, always remember what was good about the App and not just the bad.

Sincerely,
Susie in California (with permission)

Sad to see something so special gone. Hope they find a way to bring it back one day.

Gutted about the app, I was on it a lot through the days and nights. Too many dick pictures and other such stuff. The users couldn't govern themselves.

Same, spent a lot of time on it. But yeah, overrun with 'TigerText', dicks, and all the pics of shit towards the end. Not surprised they pulled it with child porn being posted recently, but still sad to see if go :( Shame they couldn't save it somehow.

Remember this from last week?



Quote
I made the strap-on postsecret that was posted last Sunday. I did it while my boyfriend was away and figured that even if you did post it, he'd never know it was me.

Then when you posted it, I remembered I had used his origami paper to make the heart. He knew instantly.

Oops. :)

Anyway.

This week's...

To translate that by the way go to; http://www.dolcevie.com/js/converter.html

Then type the characters into the site like this; 48:65:27:73:20:31:31:20:79:65:61:72:73:20:6D:79:20:73:65:6E:69:2E:72:2E:2E:2E

Andf then hit translate to ASCII.

There are a couple of coding errors in it though as it actually translates to; He's 11 years my seni.r...
