Abstract

Yik Yak, a social media app for smartphones, appeared in 2013 and lets people anonymously post “yaks” which can be viewed by other Yik Yak users within a 5 mile radius. Enormously popular and controversial, the app is particularly popular among university students. Yik Yak lets you know what people in your community are saying about a variety of things, including your library. If you are not on Yik Yak you are missing out on a unique opportunity to gain feedback on your library’s space, services, hours, and more! Find out what students at Grenfell Campus have yakked about the Ferriss Hodgett Library.
