All now work at Facebook as software engineers or product designers.

In all three cases, the apps are being closed because they simply aren't being used very much, and the company has decided it makes more sense to dedicate its resources elsewhere.

Facebook is also shutting down Moves at the end of the month, Moves being a fitness app the company bought in 2014 that records all of your daily activity like walking, cycling and running.

Fans of 3 of Facebook's underused applications - Hello, Moves, and tbh - will be saddened to know the apps are getting shut down. That's even though Facebook says it will scrub the user data from all three apps within 90 days.

It was a platform which encouraged teens to leave anonymous positive messages for each other.

If they wanted, respondents could reveal their identities to those they complimented. We will be deprecating Hello in a few weeks. A woman holds a smart phone with the icons for the social networking apps Facebook, Instagram and others seen on the screen in Moscow on March 23, 2018.

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

Of the three, tbh has the most reason to feel slightly aggrieved.

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. It allowed users to combine their Facebook information with their phone's contact information. The first app on the chopping block is Hello, which Facebook launched in 2015. Neither Hello nor Move had been updated in more than a year, according to The Verge. But we need to prioritize our work so we don't spread ourselves too thin. Facebook acquired tbh previous 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.
