When "Curious Cat" kept popping up on my trends list on Wednesday I was curious to see what it was about, so I clicked on the trend and I was bombarded by what seemed like a neverending feed of tweeps sharing their Curious Cat stories, but I still didn't know what it was. So I Googled it.

Well, according to the Curious Cat website, it's a social network that allows users to chat, with the option of anonymity. 

'Ah, like Instagram', I thought. No, not quite.

The website describes it as follows: Curious Cat is a Q&A social network used by one million people every day, where you can ask and receive questions, sometimes anonymously. It's great to know new people, or engage with your followers from other social networks."

Based on the site's information, the platform was created by "two [Spanish] cousins [Nuno and Marco Balbona] that believe in having a good time while doing what we love, and we do love what we do."

How does it work?

By signing into your Twitter account through the Curious Cat website, you have the ability to post questions anonymously or publicly that can be answered by that person. You can also “confess” something through Curious Cat, either posting as your Twitter account or as an anonymous user. When you confess something to another user, though, that user can’t reply back. 

You can also follow other people through Curious Cat. Through your feed, you can view published questions/answers and confessions. By receiving notifications, you can see if someone asked you a question, where you’ll have the option to reply.

You can share your curiouscat.me profile and let your followers know when you're online and are free to chat. When someone talks to you, their name will appear under the send-message box. Press "Enter" or a similar button to reply to them.

While talking to your followers and answering their questions might be fun, you may not want what you say to each other to be published on your Twitter page in case you’re worried about flooding your other followers, or if you want to keep a question or confession private. You get to decide whether something is published or not.

Curious Cat also has an App, with a 3/5 star rating and a 100 000 downloads badge on the Google Play store.
