Highlight is a social networking application for iOS and Android.[3] The application finds nearby users and shows things they have in common with a user. The application received a large update which introduced Android support on November 20, 2012.[4]

Usage[edit]

People can register user profiles with the service by entering their information. They then leave the application running in the background, and it will notify them of people nearby.[5]

Criticism[edit]

Highlight has been critizised for its disclosing of private information to strangers.[6] Highlight requires a connection to both users' Facebook accounts and their location. The difference between Highlight and other services like Foursquare is that it shares information continuously.[7]
