Facebook has announced the acquisition of a trendy teen app called TBH. The app which named after the acronym frequently used in texts, “to be honest” has been reported to be heavily used by teens around the world for anonymous polls and feedback.
Verge24 understands that the App creators of TBT will retain control over content of the polls, such as “Best person to go on a roadtrip with” and the concept has spread like wildfire amongst teens.
TBT is basically designed for people who are 13 and older, and already has way over 5 million users in the past few weeks even though it’s only available on iOS for now.
Facebook announced the acquisition but didn’t disclose terms of the deal. They also said that four co-creators of TBT; Nikita Bier, Erik Hazzard, Kyle Zaragoza, and Nicolas Ducdodon will join Facebook’s Menlo Park headquarters.
