Facebook to discontinue Hello, Moves and tbh apps

They might have made up some excuse or PR-sounding reason for shutting three apps down, but it looks like Facebook is opting for the most honest one.

Facebook is shutting down a trio of apps launched over the last four years due to low user engagement. Bier's message suggests not, though he didn't go into further detail about the team or what they might be working on.

"We know some people are still using these apps and will be disappointed", the company said in a blog post late Monday.

"We need to prioritise our work so we don't spread ourselves too thin". Sometimes this means closing an app and its accompanying APIs.

"Tbh and Facebook share a common goal of building community and enabling people to share in ways that bring us closer together", a Facebook spokesperson said at the time of the acquisition. "And it's only by trial and error that we'll create great social experiences for people".
