  • Facebook is shuttering three of its apps, including Moves

They might be gone, but Facebook still owns the patents and their legacy could live on through features added to the main Facebook app in the coming months. Finally-and most disappointingly-Facebook is shuttering Moves.

Facebook is shutting down a trio of apps launched over the last four years due to low user engagement. This Android-only app was only available in Brazil, the U.S. and Nigeria.

It was a platform which encouraged teens to leave anonymous positive messages for each other. It allowed users to combine their Facebook information with their phone's contact information. Again, I'm not sure this one will be missed either. But given that there are a lot of more robust activity tracking apps (not to mention devices) out there now, it's not a surprise that both the app and the API will be deprecated by July 31. The app launched in September 2017 and was acquired by Facebook a month later but never gained much traction. Apple awarded the app its coveted "Editors Choice" ranking. On the bright side, the app only cost Facebook $100 million, which is kind of like dropping a penny: technically you're poorer for it, but do you care enough to pick it up?

Facebook said it knows that some people are still using these apps and will be disappointed to learn they are going away but they need to prioritize their work so they don't spread themselves too thin. Sometimes this means closing an app and its accompanying APIs.
