It wasn't enough that yakkers had to add personal handles and profiles starting last August. That made their posts less about saying whatever was on their mind in complete anonymity and more about finding and connecting with others in their current geographic locations. Now users of mobile app Yik Yak face the ignominy of being truly discoverable. At least that's what a research team at New York University's Tandon School of Engineering suggests in a new paper.
