On the 17th June Facebook launched a new photo messaging app called Slingshot. This bold move took aim at a very popular and similar app, Snapchat.
Within one week after the announcement Internet users generated over 20k mentions, concerning Slingshot. Negative opinions slightly surpass positive ones (33% against 30%). Most of negative contents concern a general dissatisfaction with the app, but people also complain about Slingshot features (Reply to Unlock), privacy settings and impute the lack of creativity to Facebook.
On the other hand, there are still some who think it is a great app, even better than Snapchat and it brings a lot of fun. However, Snapchat is still more popular than Slingshot in social media.
The majority of contents were published on Twitter (73.6%), which is still the most popular platform for sharing contents.
