Path is a photo-sharing and messaging app which limits users to a mere 150 friends to encourage “high-value” connections. Similar to Instagram, it’s most popular in Indonesia but Caryn 't Hart, a lecturer in communications at TU Delft, uses the app regularly.
“Someone sent me an invite, after hearing me complain about having to watch what you say on Twitter, because I feel the eyes of students in my back,” says ‘t Hart. She uses it for things that are too personal to share openly on Twitter or Facebook. Available for iOs, Android and Windows, the app is available in a variety of languages. Path syncs with the contacts in your phone to see if your friends are also using the service. “Plus,” she adds “Path has awesome photo filters that make my hair look better.”
