For those who need a jolt of good news, a teen compliment app takes off!

"tbh had scored 5 million downloads and 2.5 million daily active users in the past nine weeks with its app that lets people anonymously answer kind-hearted multiple-choice questions about friends who then receive the poll results as compliments. You see questions like “Best to bring to a party?,” “Their perseverance is admirable?” and “Could see becoming a poet?” with your uploaded contacts on the app as answer choices.

tbh has racked up more than 1 billion poll answers since officially launching in limited states in August, mostly from teens and high school students, and spent weeks topping the free app charts. When we profiled tbh last month in the company’s first big interview, co-creator Nikita Bier told us, “If we’re improving the mental health of millions of teens, that’s a success to us.”"

I had this app for a while. It is fun for a while, but after a while it gets a little inappropriate. You may enjoy it if you like socializing, but it asks questions like "who is cute". On the other hand, it also asks questions like "who is the sunshine in your day". One time I chose a girl on my basketball team anonymously and she looked so happy!
