In the post, Sandberg told the story of Songra and his app as an instance of startups being supported by Facebook under its FBStart programme. “We’re supporting developers like Harsh who have great ideas but can’t always access the resources they need,” she posted.

My Child, an Android app, that tells parents if their child is likely to be suffering from a developmental disorder by processing basic inputs such as the child’s height, weight and gender, in just 45 seconds. It took Songra’s parents nine years to get him diagnosed of having dyspraxia, a developmental disorder.
