Facebook is offering a sum of 200 US dollars to users willing to test its new messaging app, Slingshot. According to Facebook, participants will have to devote “about 1-2 hours per week” to the study over a three-month period.
All they have to do is likely to be giving feedback and opinions on using the app and also putting the functionality to test.
Facebook was recently rebuked for making its users test apps without their consent and without payment. This time around, money is involved.
Interested participants are to fill out a survey form available online. In the survey, participants were asked how often they send photos and videos, how many people they communicate with on average and what other social apps they use.
