Facebook buys app that encourages teens to compliment each other

An app that encourages teens to be nice to each other has been acquired by Facebook for an undisclosed fee.
 
The app - called tbh, meaning "to be honest" - is just nine weeks old, but had already been downloaded five million times.
 
The app's creators said it will remain a standalone program but will now have more resources thanks to Facebook.
 
Tbh's achievement has been to create an app that has not descended into a cesspit of trolling and harassment - something many apps before it have dramatically failed to do.
 
The acquisition has been welcomed by a leading anti-bullying charity.
