Facebook has been trying to cover as much as possible and destroy the competition for several years. He tried to buy Snapchat several times, but without success. He arrived buying Instagram, the platform that has slowly been adding the main features of Snapchat.
Now they have returned to buy a popular application among teenagers: thb app, famous for allowing to send messages in an ordinary way (as on platforms like Secret or Yik Yak ). In fact, the acronym tbh app comes from “to be honest” (to be honest).
An app that runs away from trolls and negativity
This app is very popular among young Americans and, according to its description, has more than five million users. Facebook has not wanted to disclose the amount it has had to disburse to get tbh app, but they have assured that they will maintain the functioning of the same.
From some technology-related media just tried tbh app a few days ago, stating that the real key of the application is that it seeks to promote positivism since it only allows exchanging compliments between users.
This contrasts with the current moment that live platforms like Twitter, being harshly criticized for allowing (to some extent) that cyberbullying and hatred run like gunpowder.
The superior tweet perfectly sums up the supremacy of Facebook, completely dominating the list of most downloaded applications. In addition to our own applications, we see that Instagram and tbh are already part of your team.
Those who have not bought (Snapchat and Bitmoji), have been in charge of cloning its main functionalities and adding them to some of its platforms. At the moment tbh is an application that works only on iOS and in the United States. We will have to wait to know the true plans that Facebook has with this service.
