Why should you use VYO?
As responsible citizens, it is you who have to shape the opinions of the elected representatives and help them reach decisions helpful for all. VYO connects you with the decisions makers in society so that they can serve you best. VYO brings you constant updates from decisions makers to vote on, so that you can always be opinion makers! And you can do this with the freedom of anonymity. As part of social responsibility, how many times you would have felt the need to give voice to your opinion or to give honest critical feedback, but did not want to make your identity known! You can give feedback on businesses or events without need for registration or revealing your identity. The app will search for the nearest registered user and serve you their polls and feedback questions.
How to use VYO – Free Anonymous Voter
Anyone can become the anonymous voter by just downloading the app. They then have to select the users (public figures or businesses) whom they want to follow, that is, receive questions and vote on it. The anonymous voter need not register or provide any details except switch on their location finder on the phone. We do not take any private information from the anonymous. Hence the users can without fear or favour gives their opinion on the questions posted by the registered businesses / public figure (hence the name Voice Your Opinion). The user can also comment on the questions to clarify their vote. In the case of a business using the app, the comment section can be used to self-identify if necessary. The app allows every citizen to have a say on what is happening around them and express their opinion fearlessly.
You do not have to sign in or divulge your phone number. This means that you as a person remain anonymous and only your mobile MAC address is taken to prevent voting on a question more than one time. This is the same as you vote in an election, where it is impossible to know who voted for whom. It can be argued that you can be traced from your location, but the same location can have many voters and it is not possible to identify individual voter. This is the only app where you can vote without fear or favour!
Registered User (Media / Public figure / Government functionary / Business / Event managers)
The Registered User can post questions on which the general public or a restricted group in case of a customized app can vote with a formed three choice answer or a custom Yes / No / Not sure or Good/ Average / Bad answer. The location of the voter at the time of voting will be registered using GPS / ISP location information. The location of the anonymous users is represented on a map (Google map) with the number of users answering shown within colored circles. Each voter is represented by a place marker and on clicking the place markers, the comment of each voter will be visible. The Country / State / City specific answer can be filtered on the app. The registered user can also view all the comments on a post separately. The map with the place markers and the numbers of votes can be shared in social media. The registered user can also delete their post / questions. The user can restrict the question to a geographical area using the map option. Business can get real time feedback from customers. The app can be used for real time event feedback for example in a Music event or during a Lecture. Media can use the app for entrance / exit polls. The app allows the public figure or government functionary to know how popular their policies have been and get real time locational data as a referendum on their policies!
