Within the 90 days, the company plans to remove all user data of all three apps.

“We regularly review our apps to review what people appreciate the most,” the company wrote in its announcement. “Sometimes this means closing an app and the corresponding Apis. We know that some people still use these apps and will be disappointed and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their support. But we have to prioritise our work, so we don’t spread ourselves too thin. And it is only by trial and error, that we create a great social experience for people.”

Meanwhile, Facebook recently cancelled Aquila, a drone project had been working on since 2014 that aimed to bring internet access to the estimated 4 billion people live in areas of the world where the infrastructure is not in place to offer.
