My Fling with Fling

Last week I downloaded Fling, the latest social media craze. The app that describes itself as ‘as exciting way to share life’s moments’ allows you to send photos, short videos and messages (otherwise known as ‘Flings’) to up to 50 complete strangers anywhere in the world. I was instantly hooked.
