Facebook's Slingshot lets you explore and follow popular user accounts

As much as you’d like to give Facebook’s Slingshot a try, most of your friends still prefer Snapchat, huh? If you don’t mind slinging photos or videos with strangers, the app’s new Explore feature can help connect you to people who do use it regularly. It shows a list of popular users you can follow, so you can finally get to enjoy what the app can do. In case you are one of those popular users and would rather not be hounded by strangers sick of Snapchat, though, simply switch on “Approve Followers” in your settings page. This update also comes with bug fixes and an easier way to follow someone while viewing their entries, and it’s now live for both iOS and Android users.
