These are then answered anonymously by the users' friends and are sent to the users in the form of positive feedback.
A spokeswoman for Facebooksaid that the social network is not disclosing the terms of the deal, but TBH's millennial co-creators - Nikita Bier, Erik Hazzard, Kyle Zaragoza and Nicolas Ducdodon - will become Facebook employees, based at the company's headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., and will continue to work on TBH.
If we talk about the data, the app has already crossed 5 Million downloads in just two months.
Since the app got officially launched in August, it captured more than 1 billion poll answers out of which majority was of teens and high school students. TBH believes that it holds similar values to Facebook and is hopeful that the acquisition will help to bring its message to more people. The app has becoming more popular day by day in the U.S. specially for teenagers. Once confirmed, you will be able to share the poll between your friends and other users of this app.
Like other messaging apps including Yik Yak, Secret, and Sarahah, tbh's users can interact with each other anonymously, making it desirable among teens. To prevent bullying, issues resolved with a positive bias, for example: "Who better to call for a party" or "someone in the class the best smile?" "Most of all, we were compelled by the ways they could help us realize tbh's vision and bring it to more people".
The tbh team wrote in an announcement post that "When we met with Facebook, we realised that we shared numerous same core values about connecting people through positive interactions". The teen-focused app, which is currently only available in a handful of states in the USA, has been the number one free app in the iOS App Store for more than three weeks now. The app is designed for the teenagers of 13 and above.
