While Facebook lets you connect with your friends anywhere, Slight offers an anonymous chat room for people who want to talk to strangers in their area. In addition to being able to swap secrets and share thoughts with anyone in a 40 meter radius, you can also use the app to snoop on your neighbors.

Developed by Jon Nash and Michael Petruzzo, Slight app is an anonymous chat tool that opens up an opportunity for people to get the affirmation they crave regardless of who they are. The app uses location to connect people, making messages viewable only within a limited area. This is ideal for people who want to share their thoughts online, but are afraid of how they may be perceived. This could have both positive and negative effects.
