Yik Yak crashed and burned after raising $73.5 million…then laying off most of its employees as users ditched its anonymous message board app.
But now Yik Yak appears to be taking another shot at the college demographic with an app for chatting up people with the same classes, major, or interest.
Last week, an app called Hive appeared in the app stores.
It was built by Richard Guy, Yik Yak s lead mobile developer, shares the same minty green color scheme, and features Yik Yak co-founder Brooks Buffington in its screenshots.
Spotted by The Verge and now on Product Hunt, Hive describes itself as an exclusive social network for your campus.
The catch is that the iOS and Android app is only for college kids with .edu email addresses, and right now it s only open at South Carolina s Furman University where Yik Yak s co-founders met.
