Secret has finally spoken up about that rumored funding round it had last week, clarifying the number and offering some pertinent user statistics for the 45-day-old app in a Medium post that went live Friday. The company confirmed that it raised $8.6 million from the likes of Google Ventures, Alexis Ohanian, Pete Cashmore and others — a slightly lower number than the reported $10 million from last week. In addition, it noted two interesting facts: 75 percent of people with more than five friends open the app daily, and 90 percent of users that engage in a conversation come back within the week.
