Facebook Goes After Snapchat With New Photo Messaging Service


Mark Zuckerberg thought he had so much money he could buy anything he wanted, and he made a good case for it. That was until Snapchat happened. In an effort to get back at the company who turned down $3 billion from his checking account, Zuckerberg did what Zuckerberg does: he ran with their idea and plans to make a bunch of money off of it.

Called Sling Shot, the photo messaging service ensures that no dick pics go unanswered. Part of the application service is before it allows a user to open a received message, he must first respond to that message with a photo himself. This begs a buffet of questions. Like, how does a conversation end? How do you know what to respond if you can’t see what the other user was trying to say? How many girls didn’t respond when Zuckerberg “slinged” out a picture of his lap hog? I mean, the guy’s got a lot of Facebook friends.

Outside of that feature the only trait that separates this service from Snapchat is that the messages last longer. Because that’s what everyone wants. I thought staring at a picture of my friend’s face mid-poop for ten seconds was plenty long, thanks.
