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

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

Nikita Bier is the founder of tbh and, asked by Business Insider about his future plans, responded: "I'll be staying with Facebook and continuing to build new products with the tbh team". It was downloaded five million times in its first couple months of existence, but usage faded over time. Also like any other huge corporation, Facebook sometimes abandons those companies shortly thereafter without doing much with what they had to offer. Facebook acquired tbh past year - if you've not heard of it before, it's an anonymous social media app aimed at high school students in the US that encouraged teens to be nice towards each other.

In 2014, the company bought fitness app Moves, which tracks activities like walking and running.

All user data for tbh, along with fitness tracker Moves and Hello, an app which linked Facebook information with phone contacts, will all be deleted within 90 days, the firm said.

"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 ("to be honest") was downloaded 5 million times in the U.S. in its first nine weeks, before being bought by Facebook for an undisclosed sum. 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.

At 10:15 a.m. local time, police took a moment to speak to reporters, offering a few more details as the investigation continues. Lacy later told reporters that the suspect is a white male who worked for the same company as the two victims.

It wasn't clear whether tbh's closure, announced on Monday, might mean layoffs.

Facebook is retiring three apps, blaming low user numbers.

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

Tbh, an acronym for "to be honest", was aimed at American high school and college students, and described itself as "the only anonymous app with positive vibes". But we need to prioritise our work so we don't spread ourselves too thin.
