Facebook buys 'positive social app' tbh just 2 months after its launch

Tbh app

Compared to average app users, social app users were 3.2 times more likely to be in a negative mood during the third quarter of the year, according to recent research from mobile video ad firm AdColony.

As everyone has probably guessed, tbh stands for "to be honest". "While the last decade of the Internet has been focused on open communication, the next milestone will be around meeting people's emotional needs". That doesn't mean the app is averse to feedback and ideas-users can submit poll ideas, which are reviewed and decided upon by the app team.

The app lets teenagers anonymously answer kind-hearted, multiple-choice questions about friends, who then receive the poll results as compliments, TechCrunch reported on Tuesday.

According to TechCrunch's sources, Facebook paid less than United States dollars 100 million for the company.

They add that this move is ideal not only to reach more people but also to accomplish their app's goal. Also, all the answers are saved so that the user can read them whenever they want. The only difference is that they have access to more resources because of Facebook.

Facebook said: "tbh and Facebook share a common goal - of building community and enabling people to share in ways that bring us closer together". However, there's no word on when the acquisition actually took place.

Facebook has locked its sights on teens around the world with the purchase of tbh, a polling app that has been a huge hit with under-twenties. Moreover, the four-person team of tbh would be Facebook employees.

This article will be removed soon! The questions cover such things as notes of affection ("I will marry them"), straightforward compliments ("Freckles on fleek"), endorsements and sarcasm ("Would drive to your house and wake you up to tell you who finally texted back").
