First they tried to buy SnapChat. Then they made Poke (it’s ok, no one else rememebers either). Now Facebook accidentally revealed their third attempt at joining the disappearing-message game by releasing Slingshot to the app store before intended.
It appears that Slingshot is pretty much exactly like SnapChat except for a little twist – users must unlock “slings” (i.e. “snaps”) by first sending their own. Which eliminates “lurkers” from the app – thus eliminating a lot of people. How many Snaps do you look at versus how many you create? It’s not usually a 1 to 1 ratio.
Which begs the question – If a SnapChat/SlingShot is sent from the woods but no one can open it, does it make a sound? Probably depends on your settings…
