On the surface, it’s easy to see Slight as yet another repudiation of that first phenomenon, Yahoo Tech reports.

It’s an anonymous social app, just like Whisper and Yik Yak, ostensibly pushing back against Facebook’s insistence on linking a username with a face. To hear its creators talk about it, though, Slight actually has more to do with that second big trend. Instead of helping us talk to people wherever they are, its ambition is to give us new ways to communicate with people in our immediate, physical vicinity. Put differently, it’s the rare social network that cares less about who you are than where you are.
