Facebook (FB+0.4%) is reportedly in China (where its apps are blocked) with a photo-sharing app, via roundabout means.

The company approved the debut this spring of an app called Colorful Balloons, released through local company Youge Internet Technology in what would be an unprecedented coup.

The app shares look, function and feel with Facebook’s Moments app, and the executive director of that company was photographed in a meeting between Facebook and China’s government. But Colorful Balloons doesn’t show any hint that it’s affiliated with Facebook.
