Something that strikes me as super weird is a mobile app that I recently started to use. It is called “Yo.” The purpose of the app is simple– you press a button, and it sends one of your friends a “Yo.” That’s all there is to it, and it is extremely simplistic.
After hearing this, you might think that it is just another stupid mobile app that was published, and that nobody uses it. You would be wrong. Yo has actually become its own company, and has received funding from well-known venture capital firms in Silicon Valley. It has actually received $1.5M in funding, at a staggering $10M valuation. This is insane, considering that Yo was just created a couple months ago.
I find this app weird because the idea behind it is simply weird. While it seems like there’s really no point to it, there actually is a point.
