Facebook's founder Mark Zuckerberg has made a big point of meeting with Chinese politicians, studying Communist Party propaganda, Mandarin and even speaking it in public.

It's no secret how badly Facebook wants to take on the Chinese market.

Facebook has been officially blocked in China since 2009, and parts of WhatsApp's service were recently blocked within the country's borders. But according to The New York Times, Facebook might have found a subtle workaround to penetrating the country.

"The charges are false and misleading", Randolph's agent and attorney Raymond Brothers told The Associated Press on Thursday. The two-time NBA All-Star played for Michigan State University before being drafted in 2001 by the Portland Trail Blazers.

The app is named Colorful Balloons, and is similar to Facebook's Moments.

The New York Times reports Facebook was behind the May launch of a Chinese app called Colorful Balloons, which lets users share pictures on social media.

The app was released by a local company and doesn't carry any of Facebook's branding.

Stock markets slip as North Korea tensions build
European stock markets fell further in opening trade on Friday on intensifying fears over North Korea , dealers said. The Nasdaq Composite Index plunged 2.1% to 6216.87 and the Standard & Poor's 500 Index dropped 1.45% to 2438.21.

The app, which is created to collate photos from a smartphone's photo albums and then share them, was released by a local company called Youge Internet Technology, which is registered to an address in eastern Beijing, without any hint of affiliation with Facebook.

Facebook isn't welcome in China, but that hasn't stopped the social media giant from managing to establish presence one way or another.

"Our focus right now is on helping Chinese businesses and developers expand to new markets outside China by using our ad platform". The Times says it illustrates the "desperation" of tech firms as they attempt - exhaustively - to break into China's online market.
