The 10 Most Popular Apps Blocked By Facebook

Wonder

Date: Jan. 24, 2013

Blocked for: Data access and competitive concerns

Facebook knocked the social discovery app’s hustle by denying access to its API data within the first four hours of its iOS launch. Wonder was initially created to unify info from popular social media outlets, standing out as a major Graph Search competitor. Developer Yandex stated the reason behind the ban was due to Facebook mistaking the app for a search engine, even though it’s identified as the most popular search engine in Russia. Didn't help matters at all.
