Facebook is doing some internal housecleaning, as it has confirmed two of its stand alone Android apps have been removed from Google Play. In addition, the company has decided to shutter its Creative Labs division, which was supposed to allow its employees to help develop new and innovative apps.
The two Android apps that are affected by Facebook's shut down are the Snapchat-like messaging app Slingshot and the video sharing app Riff. Facebook has also closed versions of those apps for iOS, along with another one, the group messaging app Rooms, that was never released for Android. CNET got the official word of their shut down:
Facebook says that even with the closing of Creative Labs, it still plans to release experimental new apps in the future.
