Selfie social network Shots has raised a further $4m in funding, bringing its grand total to more than $15m. The latest round was led by DCM Ventures, and builds in the $8.5m funding round announced back in April.
Shots was made popular thanks to some high profile celebrity members, including Justin Bieber, but is a more intriguing app because it avoids many of the established social network tropes. For example, there are no comments allowed, and an inability to see how many followers people have, or how many Likes a photo has attracted.

New features were introduced earlier this year, including a Vine-style video mode, and a location-based friend finder. The app has five million users, and almost half this number check the app everyday.
There’s no information on how the company intends to use the new investment, but the previous round was intended to build the new features, and to help shed its celebrity-watching reputation.
