The app, called Colorful Balloons, is similar to Facebook'sMoments application in function and feel, but does not carry the Facebook name, the Times said on Aug 11. In an attempt to re-enter the Chinese market, Facebook launched a photo-sharing app, Colourful Balloons through another firm. Through its Colorful Moments app, Facebook could learn how to be more like the WeChats and Weibos of China. The app looks and feels nearly exactly like Facebook's Moments app, but has been renamed to disguise any hint of its affiliation with the Zuckerberg-founded company.
In comments made to the New York Times, Facebook didn't officially confirm their involvement with the project, but they didn't deny it either. The app is published by a Chinese company called Youge Internet Technology and bears no apparent affiliation with the social networking company. Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg has been in talks with the Chines politicians to make Facebook active in the country but didn't succeed. The director of the company, a woman named Zhang Jingmei, appeared in a photo of a meeting between Facebook and the Shanghai government, sitting next to Facebook executive Wang-Li Moser, indicating she is likely associated with the company, the report added.
