Facebook is shutting down tbh, Hello and Moves due to "low usage"

Facebook to shutter three of its mobile applications, including ‘Moves’ fitness tracking

The other two apps were Hello, a service that was developed in-house in 2015 to help Android users combine information from Facebook with their phone contacts data, and a fitness app called Moves that Facebook (fb) bought in 2014.

Fans of 3 of Facebook's underused applications - Hello, Moves, and tbh - will be saddened to know the apps are getting shut down.

Lastly, the tbh anonymous social media app for high school students in the U.S. was acquired just a year ago. While Google seems to hold onto apps long after they've failed to take off (witness the ridiculous number of chatting apps the company is still keeping alive, despite their obvious overlap), Facebook takes a more decisive brutal approach. All the three apps will have their user data deleted within 90 days. 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. 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.

Facebook shares slip on report of widened probe into Cambridge Analytica scandal
The investigation involves three agencies including the Securities and Exchange Commission , the Washington Post report said. It says it asked the company, Kogan, and others to delete the data.


Facebook is deprecating these apps due to low usage, the company wrote in a blog post late on Monday. Hello is an Android app that Facebook launched three years ago in just three countries: Brazil, Nigeria, and the United States. Moves was one of the most popular fitness tracking app that would automatically understand your activity and record it accordingly.

Facebook acquired tbh in 2017.

The last item on the to-be-axed list is tbh. The app let users participate in anonymous polls and give positive feedback to friends.

Aaron Finch scores highest T20I score beating his own record
Belting 10 sixes and 19 fours in the devastating knock, Finch bypassed his own mark of 156 he set against England five years ago. The Australian captain blasted 172 in just 76 balls with 16 fours and ten sixes to rewrite the T20I record held by himself.


"We need to prioritise our work so we don't spread ourselves too thin".

Tbh ("to be honest") was downloaded 5 million times in the USA in its first nine weeks, before being bought by Facebook for an undisclosed sum. "And it's only by trial and error that we'll create great social experiences for people", it said.

Football greats who have never won a World Cup
Before the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation started, one man subject to much debates was Lionel Messi . He left the role after disagreements with AFA but now says he wants to help them put the team back on top.
