Broke up with my girlfriend a couple months ago and still coming to terms with it. Been trying to get over her for a while but don’t really know how to. Some people have suggested sleeping around or finding a friend with benefits. Does this help? Is it a good way to get over someone? I wouldn’t even know how to initiate things like this, does snapchat work?

Simply getting out there and dating casually would achieve the same result. You don't need to sleep with anyone.

I’m my opinion I don’t think sleeping around a with lots of people is a good way to deal with a breakup as it’s more of a distraction than actually moving on.
Plus it may not be fair for the people you are having one night stands with if they’ve are looking for a relationship and you are just looking for a way to get over a breakup - if that makes sense.

It would probably just make you feel worse.

A distraction is what you need because only time will help you get over someone. Not the act of sleeping with someone itself. You distract yourself and allow yourself enough time and you'll be gucci.

Why would you date someone unless you're going to sleep with them?

My personal opinion would be no.

My point was that he doesn't need to have meaningless sex with strangers to be able to move to on.

Not a good idea! Take some time out from relationships then start dating again!

No.
No strings sex, ons and fwb are good ways to remind yourself that there are plenty of other fish in the sea willing to have sex with you.
Casual sex only tends to helps people remember the other opportunities for sex that don't involve commitment or exclusivity.

Been there and done that, it's a bad idea. I found random road trips and hanging out with friends far better
