Yes, Facebook is becoming user-centered. For the first time ever, the social networking giant is turning to its users to make one of its new app better.

Slingshot was only released a few weeks ago and despite a good start, Facebook is worried the app may not attract as many users as they would want it to. So they want to understand how people use Slingshot, in order to then use all the findings to make the app better and guarantee its success.

The panel recruitment was announced on the official Slingshot blog:

Calling all Slingshot fans! Join our hand-picked group working to make the app more awesome.

If you’re chosen, you could get rewarded with some sweet Slingshot swag and cash in return for your feedback. Start here: https://ethn.io/59669 

The link takes users to a page with the headline, “Want to help make Slingshot awesome? Earn at least $200 by joining our panel!” The text on the page reads:

We’re looking for people who use Slingshot to participate in a three-month study so we can improve your experience. It’d require about one to two hours per week. If you’re interested in joining the panel, please fill out a short survey. We’ll let you know if you’re chosen.

When you apply, Facebook will ask you about your Slingshot username and your basic usage habits. Should you be selected to join the panel, you will be informed by email.

What do you think of this bold move by Facebook?
