Facebook accidentally launches then removes new Slingshot app

Facebook's new ephemeral messaging app, Slingshot, was accidentally released and subsequently removed from the App Store. Designed to be able to "share everyday moments with lots of people at once," users must send a return message in order to "unlock" a received message. Amongst other features, while viewing a message, a reaction can be sent by tapping the React button. Slingshot has no official release date.



Instagram to introduce ads in the UK, Canada and Australia

Instagram has announced that it plans to incorporate advertisements into its feeds for subscribers in the UK, Canada and Australia. Ads were rolled out for US users last fall, with the photo shooting, filtering and sharing service aiming to integrate top brands into users' photo feeds. Ads will be included in more countries' Instagram versions later this year.
