Bier's message suggests not, though he didn't go into further detail about the team or what they might be working on.
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. The three app have been acquired or are Facebook's own creation: Hello, Moves, and tbh. This Android-only app was only available in Brazil, the USA and Nigeria. The app was only available in the United States and allowed teens to share opinions on things and on each other anonymously. Among other things, its goal was to let people combine information from Facebook with contact information in the user's phone. Again, I'm not sure this one will be missed either.
In 2014, Facebook purchased Moves, a fitness app that records your daily activity including walking, cycling and running.
Moves, which Facebook bought in 2014, was an activity app for "fitness tracking without gadgets", instead monitoring walking, cycling and running using sensors and Global Positioning System data from your phone.
Facebook acquired tbh in 2017. It had been lauded for its simple design user interface, as well as its accuracy. But it seems that was not enough and the app will be discontinued.
In 2014, we bought the fitness app Moves. But we need to prioritise 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". "Sometimes this means closing an app and its accompanying APIs", the company said in a blog post about the closures.
