Initially, Sarahah was just a social network website created by Zain al-Abidin Tawfiq. This website allows employees to write anonymous feed back to their employers. So employees can post honest feedback without getting fired. According to the developer, the sole purpose of this website is to self-improve by receiving honest anonymous feedbacks.
