Facebook Buys TBH App: What You Need to Know

TBH announced today that they are joining Facebook in order to get the app to more people with more features. Right now, the app is only available on iOS, but this move makes it seem more likely that it will come to other devices soon.

Not much will change regarding the current use of the app. Facebook will allow it to continue to operate as normal, much like it does with Instagram. The app will remain separate from Facebook, but it will more than likely be coming to more people in the near future.

TBH app has been topping the iTunes charts since release with over 5 million downloads in less than 2 months. The app is described on the iTunes store as “the only anonymous app with positive vibes,” and was created in response to anonymous apps and websites like Sarahah that were sometimes linked to cyber bullying.

Previously, the developers had announced that TBH was not coming to Android right away, since they had yet to get their app available in more than a few states.

The app is described on the iTunes store as “the only anonymous app with positive vibes,” and was created in response to anonymous apps and websites like Sarahah that were sometimes linked to cyber bullying. According to a Buzzfeed article, TBH cannot be used in the same way since it does away with typing completely.

The app was created by a company called Midnight Labs in Oakland, CA. The company has spent over five years making social apps that were seen as failures and then they decided to make TBH and make people feel good.

The app launched at a school in Georgia and after 3 days it’d spread to thousands of schools. The app is definitely angled toward teens, but adults can sign up too. It’s not required that anyone who uses the app be in school, just have some friends that have also downloaded the app to play with. According to their Twitter page, the app has had more than 1 billion polls answered.
