Facebook bids goodbye to three of its mobile apps


Due to lesser usage, Mark Zuckerberg-owned Facebook has announced the shutdown of three of its apps- Hello, tbh, and Moves.

Facebook, via its newsroom said, “We regularly review our apps to assess which ones people value most. Sometimes this means closing an app and its accompanying APIs. 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. But we need to prioritize our work so we don’t spread ourselves too thin. And it’s only by trial and error that we’ll create great social experiences for people.

For those who have forgotten, the Hello app which was launched back in 2015 was meant for Android users as a caller ID and blocking app with social media integration. The app launched in Brazil, the US and Nigeria will be closed in the coming few weeks.

The Moves app, on the other hand, was launched in 2014 as a fitness app, allowing users to record daily activities. The app will cease to exist starting July 31. Additionally, the tbh app is a social media app for high school students in the US, acquired by Facebook in 2017.

Facebook will delete the user data from all three of these apps with in 90 days. Furthermore, the apps are no more on the Google Play Store.
