Is ephemeral going to be Messaging 3.0? What about anonymous? It is too early to tell, but one thing is certain: we are primed to witness the next war in Messaging 2.0.

I have to admit that I’m a Secret voyeur; I rarely post but love reading the updates. I don’t see it as messaging so much as just an anonymous blog. It is, regardless, very engaging and sticky. Reminds me of a popular site many years ago called Group Hug (they even made a book).

Do any of you use Secret or any of the others?
