Facebook To Shut Down Three Apps, Including Recently Launched Tbh

Tbh app

All three apps will have their user data erased from existence within 90 days, according to Facebook.

The company is also closing a fitness app, Moves, it acquired in 2014, and Hello, an app it launched in 2015.

The social network on Monday announced it is shutting down tbh, a teen messaging and polling app it acquired past year, and two others due to "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. Moves, tbh, and Hello will cease to exist in a few weeks because the social media giant will deprecate them due to low usage.

Facebook has shut down an anonymous app for teens, tbh, that it bought less than a year ago - but the app's founder said he plans to stay on with his team. Hello was a way for Android users in Nigeria, Brazil and the United States to link up their Facebook accounts with their phones' contact lists.

Instagram Stories, Now Twice as Big as Snapchat, Adds Music Integration
Songs will play automatically once people tap to watch your story, and the sticker will include the song title and artist name. Instagram will introduce a number of updates and third-party app integrations to facilitate it's popular feature - Stories.

The app was later acquired by Facebook in 2017 and is expected to be put to rest in the coming weeks. 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.

Tbh is an acronym for "to be honest", and the game-like app allowed USA teenagers to send compliments to their friends through a series of quizzes and polls.

Facebook acquired tbh - which stands for the popular texting acronym "to be honest" - for an undisclosed sum last October.

Facebook shares that they regularly review their own apps as well as the ones the acquire so they don't spread themselves too thin maintaining a thousand ones when only a handful are actually being used. "And it's only by trial and error that we'll create great social experiences for people", it said.
