The Pink Whale also known as the Baliea Rosa, has emerged in Brazil and is an attempt to prove that the internet is merely a tool and can be used to channelize good in society. As the Blue Whale Challenge has highlighted the implications of overpowering social media in life, the Pink Whale is reroute to prove its usefulness.
The Pink Whale Challenge spans over 50 days and sets 50 quests to make your friends happier. While the Blue Whale required cutting the skin, the Pink Whale asks the player to write in marker the name of a person the player loves. Other challenges involve telling the family you love them, unblocking a friend on facebook, and apologizing for a mistake.
The final task is to help a person or animal in need, instead of the suicidal task set by the Blue Whale Challenge.
