Facebook has a secret app in China

Axios Technology 13 months ago

Facebook is testing a photo-sharing app in China, called Colorful Balloons, that is similar to Facebook's Moments app, but isn't identified as linked to Facebook, the New York Times reports.

Why this matters: The release of a secret app shows, according to the Times, the "desperation — and frustration" among big tech companies to gain access to the tightly controlled Chinese internet market and its hundreds of millions of users.
