Former Fox News and MSNBC anchor Greta Van Susteren just launched an app called "Sorry," where public figures and the general public alike can post and send apologies to one another.
The veteran journalist says the app, “teaches you how to make things right with the ones you’ve wronged.”
The timing of the launch is particularly interesting given the current news cycle.
Van Susteren tweeted Wednesday morning that comedian Louis C.K., accused by 5 women of sexual harassment, and his former agent Dave Becky might both make good use of the app.
She points out that "everybody gets to see the apology" and vote on whether it should be accepted.
But not use cases are so serious. Some "Sorry" members are settling disputes over things like nabbing a roommate’s macaroni & cheese. Users can also post video mea culpa.
Van Susteren, who has been named to Forbes' list of the 100 Most Powerful Women in the World six times, also published a book about social media this week. Her goal is to help adults navigate a variety of internet topics, such as how to tweet. It’s a topic she knows well -- Van Susteren has over a million followers across social media platforms.
The book, “Everything You Need to Know About Social Media: Without Having to Call a Kid,” hit shelves on Tuesday. The “Sorry” app is available on both iOS and Android operating systems.
