New App For Teens – To Be Honest (tbh)

A new app called tbh, meaning “to be honest”, had been launched just 9 weeks before and since then this app had been downloaded 5 million times. Facebook has already acquired this app for an undisclosed fee.

This app encourages teenagers to be nice to each other.

Tbh’s app creator thought it would remain a standalone program but now that Facebook has bought it, this would have more resources.

Tbh said, “We were compelled by the ways they could help us realize tbh’s vision and bring it to more people”.

According to start-up news site TechCrunch, the deal was for “less than $100m”, and tbh’s four-person team would become Facebook employees.

In a statement, Facebook said, “tbh and Facebook share a common goal of building community and enabling people to share in ways that bring us closer together.

We’re impressed by the way tbh is doing this by using polling and messaging, and with Facebook’s resources tbh can continue to expand and build positive experiences.”

It’s because of the teenagers, who were craving more positive interactions online, was the biggest sign of the app’s success.

It also said, “While the last decade of the internet has been focused on open communication, the next milestone will be around meeting people’s emotional needs.”

Though the makers of that tbh app made it available in only some selective places but word of mouth spread at schools when the app was enabled.

Co-founder Nikita Bier told to TechCrunch explaining, “We shipped it to one school in Georgia. Forty percent of the school downloaded it the first day. The next day it was in three more schools, and then the next day it was in 300 schools.”
