In a bit of a footnote, the above article also mentions that Facebook’s Windows Store apps (Messenger and Facebook) will be removed from the Microsoft Store as well as their mobile store. This is an interesting choice, since Facebook is clearly one of the most popular apps on MS’s Store platform. While the writing has been on the wall for quite a while now, I think this is just the first of many major app withdrawals from the MS Store in the coming two or so years. I have the app but hardly ever used it, which seems to be the pattern for most Store users.

Thoughts?
