From time to time Facebook releases new apps that are designed to make our lives easier and more convenient, although sometimes these apps don’t necessarily achieve the same level of success as Facebook would have liked. The company has in the past launched and shuttered some of its apps, such as Groups and Lifestage, and it looks like they’re not quite done yet.
In a post on its website, Facebook has announced that there will be three more apps that will be getting the axe. This comes in the form of Hello, Moves, and tbh, which for those unfamiliar is an anonymous social media app designed for high school students in the US. The apps will be shut down at various stages, with Hello expected to be deprecated in the next few weeks, while Moves will deprecate on the 31st of July.
Facebook also reassures users that user data from all the apps will also be deleted within 90 days. According to Facebook, “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.”
