On Banta Sharing experiences, thoughts and secrets in our current world, sometimes come with a lot of criticism, judgment, and stigmatization from the readers and listeners, which has been a huge detriment to hearing and reading real stories about people’s actual feelings.
These days, emotions are faked, stories are fabricated, success is overrated and social media has been a perfect medium of expression. These have led a lot of people to depression, living a fake life and fabricating happiness. people are scared to seek help, express their true feelings and as a result of these, some people most especially celebrities, literarily dies in silence while faking happiness.
2 months ago, we launched Banta to help people tell real stories without revealing their identities, before the inception of Banta, we discovered the urge in people to share experiences, the need to feel loved, the desire for advice and most importantly, the desire to express true feelings without being attacked or hunted by readers or listeners. while writing this posts, over 700 people have shared an experience, solicited for help and revealed their true feelings in anonymity. This is a big deal for us and a sense of fulfillment.
Today we’re launching Banta stories to help people get their stories out the more, Banta stories will expand and give more insights on posts shared on the Banta app. With Banta stories, we will help people share interesting experiences, show what it takes to fight depression, criticism, and generally partake in freedom of expression without stigmatization.
