Since Slingshot has launched last week, Facebook has heard from lots of people around the world who are excited to give Slingshot a try. Starting today, Facebook is expanding the initial launch and making Slingshot available internationally.
Slingshot is available in app stores around the world for iPhone (iOS7) and Android (Jelly Bean and KitKat) at http://sling.me/download.
With Slingshot, Facebook aims at building something where everybody is a creator and nobody is just a spectator. When everyone participates, there’s less pressure, more creativity and even the little things in life can turn into awesome shared experiences. This is what Slingshot is all about.
Photos and videos that don’t stick around forever allow for sharing that’s more expressive, raw and spontaneous. We can connect the same way we like to live: in the moment. With Slingshot, Facebook saw an opportunity to create something new and different: a space where you can share everyday moments with lots of people at once.
To get started on Slingshot, shoot a photo or video. It can be what you’re up to, who you’re with or a quick selfie. Add some text and color, then sling it to a bunch of friends. Here’s the deal: friends won’t be able to see your shot until they sling something back to you. They can then reply with a reaction—or simply swipe your shot away.
Using Slingshot has made us feel closer, and we can’t wait for others to try it out. It’s the second app from Facebook Creative Labs and is available today on iPhone (iOS7) and Android (Jelly Bean and KitKat). Get it at sling.me/download
