Facebook quietly fields unbranded software in China

13 Août 2017

Facebook anonymously launched a new photo-sharing app in China in a new effort to make inroads in the world's most populous country.

In its latest attempt to have an indirect presence in China, Facebook has authorized a local company to launch a photo-sharing application in the country in May, a new report has claimed.

The app was released by a local company and doesn't carry any of Facebook's branding.

But like a lot of USA companies, Facebook has had a hard time breaking through China's onerous digital censorship laws.

China is the largest online market in the works. "It also highlights how far they are willing to go, and their recognition of the idea that the standards for working in China differ from other countries", write the journalists.

It is unclear whether China's internet regulators were aware of the app's existence.

Netflix woos Walt Disney to keep Marvel superheroes and Star Wars
When news broke that Disney would be divorcing Netflix (BUT NOT BECAUSE OF ANYTHING YOU DID, SWEETIE!) and launching its own independent streaming service people understandably flipped out .

Last month, in a crackdown on Internet services by the government, Apple had removed all major VPN apps from the App Store in China.

"We have long said that we are interested in China, and are spending time understanding and learning more about the country in different ways".

It's no secret how badly Facebook wants to take on the Chinese market. Videos of him speaking Mandarin have gone viral, as did a photo of him jogging on a dangerously smoggy day through Tiananmen Square in Beijing.

According to the documents, Youge's executive director is a woman named Zhang Jingmei.

Colorful Balloons was released early this year through a separate Chinese company, the New York Times reported. Even Colorful Balloons relies heavily on Chinese social platform WeChat to function.
