Yandes Says Wonder Social App Blocked by Facebook in U.S.

Yandex NV, Russia’s largest search engine, said Facebook Inc. blocked its new social application for Apple Inc.’s iPhone and iPad mobile devices three hours after it was released yesterday in the U.S.

Yandex introduced the Wonder app in the U.S. yesterday, allowing users to retrieve information from Facebook, its Instagram platform, Foursquare Labs Inc. and Twitter Inc. networking websites about friends’ social activities. The information can be retrieved by asking the application questions either by voice or by typing.
