Facebook tries to enter China incognito

 Beijing, Aug 12: In a bid to explore the high-potential Chinese online market, Facebook has authorised the release of a new app here that does not carry its name. The app called “Colorful Balloons” is a photo-sharing app that shares the look, function and feel of Facebook’s Moments app, The New York Times reported on Saturday. The app, which is designed to collate photos from a smartphone’s photo albums and then share them, was released by a local company called Youge Internet Technology, which is registered to an address in eastern Beijing, without any hint of affiliation with Facebook. However, the room number listed in company registration documents could not be found amid a series of shabby, small offices on the building’s fourth floor.  (IANS)
