Laura K Kerr‘s insight:
This free app is marketed as a way to prevent violence by creating a circle of 6 friends who potentially can offer a way out of unsafe or dodgy situations.
From the website:
“With Circle of 6, you can connect with your friends to stay close, stay safe and prevent violence before it happens.
The Circle of 6 app for your iPhone makes it quick and easy to reach the 6 friends you choose.
Need help getting home? Need an interruption? Two touches let your circle know where you are and how they can help.
Icons represent actions; so that no one can tell what you’re up to.
Designed for college students, it’s fast, easy-to-use and private.
It’s the mobile way to look out for your friends, on campus or when you’re out for the night.”
There’s also a version in Hindi.
