Facebook is currently awash with an ocean of political posts. Some are honest views of admiration, many are criticisms of the running candidates, some are sponsored candidacy messages and a lot of them are propaganda to push up or bring down one candidate or another. But one this is common with all of them — they’re all emotionally charged statements that spark even more emotional discussion.
It just underlies a strange facet of social media — we like to share our thoughts and minds, but venues like Facebook where we want everything to bright and sunny can suddenly turn into a war zone when we post about things that are very close to our hearts, and those of others. Your friends who you thought were peaceful, supportive faces suddenly transform into bloodthirsty savages out to make you eat your every word.
It doesn’t have to be that way, though. Veems is an excellent alternative as a platform for freedom of expression and just airing your honest opinions. One way Veems lets you do this is by posting secretly and anonymously with the Secret SMS feature.
Here’s how to do it.
Download Veems to your Android phone or tablet if you haven’t already.
Under the Veems main menu, select Secret SMS. Choose a category and Secret SMS you want to send, select a contact to send it too, and hit Send. For more in-depth instructions look here.
For sending a specific political message, you’ll need to use the Suggest Feature first.
You will need to suggest the new message you want to send. For instance, “My fellow Dutertards, be sure to vote Duterte on 5/9/16!” This is not a message that is currently available. By suggesting it in the space and clicking “Suggest,” the secret message will be put up on the list of messages to be screened. If it gets enough likes, it will be automatically approved for posting as a Secret SMS!
With the election fever running hot, it’ll be very easy to get 10 likes for your political candidate. This is an excellent way to campaign for your presidential candidate. Once the SMS is sent, it will only be sent by the contacts you send it to, and they will not know who you are exactly. They can reply, but you do not necessarily have to reveal yourself.
Give it a shot. You have absolutely nothing to lose! Download Veems and send a secret message.
