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

The app lets you send out positive feedbacks to the people anonymously without letting them know your real identity. Five million people have downloaded TBH, sending more than 1 billion messages on it, according to a post on the TBH website about the news.

Catching wind of the app's popularity in the teenage audience, Facebook swiftly acquires it. This suggests that tbh's widely recognized name and distinctive style persuaded Facebook that it would be better off buying tbh than trying to clone its functionality - something that Facebook's coders could easily do in a very short space of time.

Anyone older than 13 can use the app, but TBH targets teens and their social networks, asking first-time users to select their high school grade and to identify their school or college.

Oxford is planning to become a zero-emission city
The zero-emissions zone will be extended in 2025 and 2030, and by 2035 all non-electric vehicles will not be allowed into the city.

Terms of the deal weren't disclosed, but Facebook spokeswoman Vanessa Chan told Business Insider on Monday that tbh's four cofounders (Nikita Bier, Erik Hazzard, Kyle Zaragoza and Nicolas Ducdodon) will move out of the startup's Oakland, California office to work in Facebook's Silicon Valley headquarters.

Certain prewritten compliments like "Could win an Olympic gold medal for their eyeliner game" are present in the app as possible answers. So make sure to start a ideal survey and bring the best of questions for your friends and other relatives. The teen-focused app, which is currently only available in a handful of states in the U.S., has been the number one free app in the iOS App Store for more than three weeks now. The social networking giant, on the other hand, stated that both tbh and Facebook are guided by a common goal of building a community and empowering people to share in ways that bring them closer together. This agreement will add one more app which focuses on teenagers and this will definitely give tough competition to the Snapchat users in future.
