On July 2 the Moves app announced the following message to their users:
For some time now I have been a fan of the Moves App application dedicated especially for sports activities, as I personnally practising the running. I was also interested by knowing my movements around the clock in a daily basis with the use of this application, that enabled me to calculate the number of my steps very well in the background system. So it was sorry to hear like this news...
And as I was only using Moves on my device Facebook also share a statement of retiring two other apps and are Hello that was launched in 2015 for people using Android in Brazil, the US and Nigeria, and Tbh that aqcuired in 2017 by Facebook that announced the shutting down of these three apps due to low usage, and the company acknowledges in the following a statement that;

Facebook supports Tunisian youth coders to participate for the Community Challenge until July 26, 2018
Facebook announced during F8 the launching of the Developer Community Challenge until July 26th, 2018. The idea is to build software applications that help bring communities together and use at least one Facebook developer product.
The idea behind this meetup to:
- Explain the community challenge and its different components
- Bring together teams that are already created and giving them the opportunity to work together
- Give the opportunity to those interested in participating to form teams on the ground
- Bring mentors around to help participants.
I'm still extremely happy that as Facebook's leader network focusing especially for the countries in the MENA region and take it as a part of their interests and believe to talents in web/ mobile development, coding, building new technologies and more. And as I attended for the second time for the events organized by the Developer Circles from Tunis and in the framework of enriching my talents in the development field, I met with students and professionals coming from every corner of the downtown Tunis in the morning of the holy month of Ramadan and the meeting was started at Cogite Coworking Space at 10:30am for a collaborative time between developers for about 4 - 5 hours despite the fasting.
The competitors were about to be forming into groups or individuals depending on their choices to work for this challenge that it lasts for approximately to two months to start building solutions that give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together, and this by using at least one Facebook developer product according the criteria of the challenge.

Video Recap on the Facebook Community Challenge - Build Day
Helping people or others are making me sincerely so happy, whether in our daily life, at work or any other way... By the way of this case, I started for more than a year keep understanding what it really matters on Facebook Help center after a question I was looking for its solution as I forgot what it was in that time, and from time to time, when I was exploiting the time I am wasting through this social media as answering to users are looking for answers to their issues with Facebook, like how to recover an account was hacked or lost password, how to regain access to a page, and how to monetize and making ads on the platform...? And here, depending on my humble experience for more 10 years using Facebook, I became experienced on how to find the best solution related to that question posted on the community.
Meanwhile, Facebook Help Team, started marking my contributions as the best and shown as featured. From then, I am receiving comments from them encouraging me to keep continuing my active role for the members because themselves cannot offering and or answering to everyone for the high volume of questions asked everyday and moment in the forum.
It is my great pleasure that I'm chosen among as the best contributors at Facebook's Help Community, that is a place where you can connect with others to find and share answers to questions about Facebook. For this, I have earned my badge as Rising Star and that the most of my answers are marked as featured.
"Rising Stars and Star Contributors are not Facebook employees or contractors. They are individuals who have taken an active interest in helping members of the Facebook Help Community get the most out of the Facebook products. Participation in this program is purely on a volunteer basis."
It was a Sunday March 11th, 2018, the journey I am not working and I especially do not prefer that it does by without any activity as usual I do.
I was not really very familiar with some new words like the artificial intelligence and despite that, I woke very early as I reserved my place to be present for the for 8 hours of "DeepHack - AI Hackathon organized by Facebook Developer Circle in Tunis" in partnership with Cogite Coworking Space and InstaDeep.
I arrived to CCS at early 7 am, this space is a hub for impact-driven, entrepreneurial individuals and organizations that would like to actively contribute to sustainable development in Tunisia. I started checking for my registration for the right to attend the event.
Tunisian youth coders start arriving within the hour and are ready for a long day to break the challenges with goals in their minds. Students, professionals and curious people like me were here do discover the adventure for the world of the AI Hackathon.
