While discussing the step, Facebook spokesperson said:

“Since their launches, we’ve incorporated elements of Slingshot, Riff and Rooms into the Facebook for iOS and Android apps,. We haven’t updated these apps in some time and we’ve decided to officially end support by removing them from the App Store and Google Play.”

The step doesn’t mean the end of exploring ideas at Facebook, all it seems that the company is focusing more on streamline its efforts.
