A New Anonymous Social Network Where Your Location Is Not Part of the Secret Published: June 22, 2014

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.

Put differently, it’s the rare social network that cares less about who you are than where you are.
