Tell me a secret: How PostSecret shares anonymous messages with the world

489 ratings | 34937 views
Beginning in 2004, Frank Warren has invited total strangers to send him their secrets – humorous or painful, romantic or traumatic – which he then posts on the massively popular website PostSecret.com. The postcards that arrive in his mail each week have even been displayed in museums, where viewers may find secrets that hit close to home. Lee Cowan reports.

Frank told me I was courageous to tell my secret at Changing Hands Bookstore, Tempe AZ. Rock on!

I have been waiting for this story to be on the show! I love Post Secret and have been a fan of this project and have been checking the website every Sunday (actually Monday since you have to use a desktop computer instead of mobile) since about 2006/2007!! I wanted to see the exhibit when it was at the Smithsonian, but unfortunately, I missed it. I hope Frank brings his live show and/or the exhibition to Cincinnati, OH!! Thank you for doing this segment! I love CBS Sunday Morning too!

I saw this video when I went to PostSecret first thing, as I do every Sunday morning. It may be the best site on the web.

Really? Oh man! Since she put "A LOT" of money, I'm worried it's one of the wealthier celebrities. I still don't even know why I care since I don't know them personally anyways. lol

Nice lighthearted story 😬

I loved this story so much I had to look it up online and watch it again. What a wonderful idea and he seems to honor it well.

wow i had forgot about "post secrects". I used to get on there like 05-06

Bless your soul. I would have to be institutionalized and heavily medicated. While I agree "we're only as sick as our secrets" the weight of so many is overwhelming to me. Be well🙏🏼

This guy is a peeping tom and most probably a convicted sex offender and pedophile. LOL

At 1:45, the girl does not look like it could be his biological child.
Kristen Rdesinski (22 days ago)
Why does that matter to you? There are so many different types of families, biological, blended, adopted, etc. Genetics are tricky too, one child of two people may look much different from the others from the same parents, it's a bit of a crap shoot with dominant and recessive genes.
Debbie Smoller (22 days ago)
Ticaro Kabrit She might be adopted…

I'm so jealous of Frank, I wish I had thought of this fantastic, easy way to make a lucrative living.

+MARY Giovanni He does sell books.
CraftyFarmGirl (22 days ago)
Well, if you go to the bottom of his website it says this: "PostSecret is the largest advertisement-free blog in the world. Visitor count: 818,242,718" So that says something about him, I'd say. His website could be covered with ads, helping him to make this "lucrative living" you assume he does, but it is not.

+MARY Giovanni if he sells ads on his website he gets paid.
MARY Giovanni (22 days ago)
How do you know he gets paid to do this? Who pays him?
MsValerieDev (22 days ago)
I do the same thing that the first postcard writer does. People get mad at me because my messages are full.
Some Person (22 days ago)
What a fascinating story, and very inspiring to know we all have secrets were afraid to share...

God is the crutch for the weak.

Crutches help us heal.

@Olive Johnson. Oh my GODness; you're so strong... smelling. 👍🏽🤮. My God Blesses you anyway. 😇🙏🏽👼🏻
John L. (22 days ago)
I wonder what happens if he gets criminal secrets sent to him.
RozSpeaks (15 days ago)
They're anonymous and I think it's for that very reason...
K Mac (22 days ago)
An obvious question that went unasked.
