Facebook closes three apps you probably didn’t know existed

Facebook closes three apps you probably didn’t know existed

Following the deal, tbh's four co-creators Nikita Bier, Erik Hazzard, Kyle Zaragoza, and Nicolas Ducdodon joined Facebook's Menlo Park headquarters. Facebook acquired tbh a year ago - if you've not heard of it before, it's an anonymous social media app aimed at high school students in the USA that encouraged teens to be nice towards each other.

Moves, on the other hand, was a typical fitness tracking app that Facebook bought in 2014.

Meanwhile, Facebook (FB) launched Hello in 2015 for Android users in the US, Brazil and Nigeria.

Facebook announced it would buy the three-month-old app in October 2017, with many people interpreting the move as a way for the social network to reach a younger, more fickle demographic.

The company announced that it is discontinuing three of its mobile applications.

"We know some people are still using these apps and will be disappointed - and we'd like to take this opportunity to thank them for their support". Within the next few weeks, users of the apps Hello, Moves and tbh will have to say goodbye and figure out alternatives, according to Facebook's Monday news release.

You'll no longer be able to log into Moves after July 30, but you can export your data to avoid losing your logs.

In a post on Facebook's newsroom, the company said aside from taking the apps down, the data from the apps would be deleted within 90 days. The reason for closing all three apps was "low usage". Like Moves, Android dialers are hardly difficult to come by, and the Facebook-branded version struggled to offer much more than what was readily available elsewhere.

Tbh is an acronym for "to be honest", and the game-like app allowed United States teenagers to send compliments to their friends through a series of quizzes and polls. It's an anonymous social media app for high school students in the US. But we need to prioritise our work so we don't spread ourselves too thin.
