The Colourful Balloons has been released in China in the month May. The app has been top-rated in the country. The new photo-sharing app is released through the local Chinese company Young Internet Technology. However, the company did not mention any association with Facebook in any manner.
In a statement, Facebook officials said, “We are very much interested in China and are spending more time in understanding and learning about the country in different ways.”
Facebook has long eyed on China’s 700 million internet users who are currently using WeChat. Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg has been in talks with the Chines politicians to make Facebook active in the country but didn’t succeed. He made it very clear that he would want to see the social networking app Facebook in China.
