Instead of ranting on Twitter or Facebook, where people know who you are and don’t want to hear about it, Vent allows you to unleash to a group of like-minded people who are happy to help you get it off your chest.
Founded in 2013, 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.
We all know that misery enjoys company, so Vent also encourages you to follow other ‘Venters’ and be followed in return. This way you can comment, favorite, keep up with the most popular vents and generally be entertained.
Continuing with its “get it off your chest” attitude, Vent has introduced an intuitive new way for its community to interact with one another and share their frustrations.
The app has added a suite of new features that expands the user’s Vent universe further, including a the new “Slider Mechanic” that offers a broader range of emotions allowing anyone to express the finest layers of their feelings, even positive ones.
As responses that add to existing “favorite” and comment features, users can now choose to HUG, LOL, OMG, WTF other people’s vents for quick and fun comments that add connectivity to the network and create a more interactive community.
Despite the new features, the new generation still keeps in line with the simple yet effective core idea of allowing users to vent their feelings and get on with their day.
Furthermore, users have the ability to report inappropriate comments within vents, block unwanted “listeners” (followers) for better privacy control, and interact with a new predictive username system when they look to mention others within vents.
In its current form, the Vent app is one of the most emotionally effective and fun applications on the market.
