Your Friday Awesome: Circle of Six
There is a lot of talk about how technology can be dangerous for (especially young) women - sexting, check-in apps, etc. But technology can also be really useful. Circle of 6 does what a lot of people do already - use your friends to get out of sticky situations.
With two taps (and the tap to get to the app) you can let your friends know where you are if you need a ride or get separated, have a welcome interruption, or help advise you out of an unhealthy situation.
People, myself included, have being doing this with our friends for years, but now you don't need to excuse yourself to go to the bathroom to call or text a buddy. The app does it for you based on a predetermined circle of trusted friends, which is pretty awesome.
The only thing that Circle of 6 doesn't do is my #1 rule of dating: Make sure someone knows where you are and who you are with before you go on the date.
