An iOS app that’s very popular among teens these days, tbh, has been acquired by Facebook. This isn’t the first popular app that the world’s largest social network has picked up over the past few years. Who can forget Facebook’s acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp. It has been confirmed by the tbh team that the app has now been acquired by Facebook.
The popular iOS app is used primarily by teens for delivering compliments. They can send prewritten compliments to friends. With this, the app aims to prevent users from writing hateful or nasty comments to bully other users.
The app was launched for iOS back in August and more than five million people have already downloaded it so far. Over one billion messages have been sent using tbh ever since it was launched a couple of months back.
Despite the fact that this app is popular with teens, it’s open to users of all age groups. It offers prewritten compliments such as “who makes you laugh the hardest?” to make users more positive about themselves. With prewritten compliments that the app itself provides, there’s no chance for bullies to get nasty messages through.
It’s unclear how much Facebook paid for tbh, some reports suggest that the figure was under $100 million.
