Facebook has been promising that it would “shatter itself into pieces” in order to better compete on mobile by breaking up the main Facebook app into mini-apps focused on specific features. Today, it’s making good on these previously stated intentions with a new photo and video-sharing app called Slingshot, now available in select markets. The app is designed to allow friends to share photos and videos of what they’re currently up to, by “slinging” that content to others on the service. However, unlike say, competitor Snapchat, friends can’t see your shot until they, in turn, sling something back.

“Facebook Has Another Go At Snapchat With Slingshot” is categorized as “science and technology”. This video was licensed from Grab Networks. For additional video content, click the “video” tab at the top of this page.
