How to Speak Anchor

Links to Derek's waves sharing "Anchor words of the Day," new terms to describe users and usages within the user community

An Anchor user who records a first wave, and never participates again.

Anchor accounts with more than one contributor.

one-way anchor: an anchor user who only participates in their own waves and does not interact with others' conversations

1) an alcohol-fueled Anchor wave or conversation;
2) an Anchor user who participates while drunk

A wave full of bitching and moaning.

A waves that drains you because of its negativity, especially towards other people

A blank wave (no intentional sound recorded); typical of new users who may not realize during onboarding that they are being asked to record their voice for a #firstwave

An anchor user who replies to their own wave because they cannot complete their thoughts in the initial two minutes.

The repetition of another person's ideas verbatim or nearly verbatim in a new wave.

Speed anchor: to scroll rapidly through the app to avoid going down the rabbit hole of listening to and participating in many waves

Anchor fatigue: when you need to take a break from Anchor



when a reply to a wave sucks you in (more so than the original wave)
