Facebook just acquired ‘positivity-focused’ or more commonly known as the ‘teen compliments’ polling app, tbh.

The app lets you compliment your friends on what they’re good at, which we think is very inspiring and reassuring to a lot of those out there that need to hear it most.



Founder, Nikita Bier, shares in an interview with Tech Crunch, ““If we’re improving the mental health of millions of teens, that’s a success to us.”

Despite it being a surprising move for the network giant to partner with a brand, the app is looking at higher traction and more engagement- a far cry than how it could be performing had Facebook copied it.

What do you think about Facebook’s move?
