Glancee

Glancee is an app for iPhone, Android, and Facebook that makes it fun and safe to discover people nearby who share friends and interests with you. Behind the scenes, Glancee uses Facebook to find common friends and Wikipedia to match users based on interests relevant to one another. Say you like Apple: Glancee will match you with people interested in Steve Jobs, Twitter, Slashdot, Silicon Valley, and more.

Glancee is not a social network nor a dating service. It is a social discovery tool that reveals the hidden connections we share with the people we stumble upon everyday in bars, campuses, even grocery stores. You don’t even have to check-in: just open the app and start browsing who’s nearby. And if someone is a really great match, you get a push notification even if your phone is in your pocket.
