Facebook is Paying Users $200 To Test Its New App

Facebook is offering $200 to people willing to test out its new photo-messaging app Slingshot. The social network says participants will have to devote “about 1-2 hours per week” to the study over a three-month period.

The role is likely to involve giving feedback and opinions on using the app, and testing functionality. People interested in taking part have the opportunity to fill out a survey on the company’s Slingshot blog. In it, people are asked how often they send photos and videos, how many people they communicate with on average, and what other social apps they use.
