If you're a regular user of Facebook, and a frequent reader of Komando.com, you know that Facebook has grown well beyond its origins as a website where you chat with your family and friends. Facebook is now as much about mobile apps and future technologies, like self-driving drones, as it an online hangout.

We've told you, for instance, that its mobile messaging app, Messenger, now has more than 700 million users. Facebook has also begun to offer online shopping.

It has added apps so you can customize your news, and it's adding lots more ways to share and access videos and photos.

Those developments are also making some of its lesser-used apps obsolete, at least as standalone apps. In fact, Facebook is ditching three apps and its internal idea incubator, Creative Labs.
