Hypothesis supports private highlighting, but disallows it in our Public channel and in groups. We’ve chosen to keep highlights private to avoid pages being cluttered by highlights that have no surrounding discussion. We understand that people may want to share highlights with others, and we think there are effective ways we can address that in the future.
