On Whisper, Hotel Workers Come Clean About Dirty Industry Secrets

Whisper is an app and website that is, essentially, a form of anonymous (or as anonymous as you can be in this day and age) social media. It has about 17,000,000,000 (yep, that’s 17 billion) pageviews, with about 250 million monthly users in 187 countries.
