Facebook has recently acquired an anonymous complimenting app popular among teen users called 'TBH,' effectively demonstrating the networking site's attempt to negate the negativity that social media sites can often facilitate.

Through the service, users are asked a series of questions which aim to generate positive answers, such as "who makes you laugh the hardest" or "who has the best smile." The questionnaire will provide the user with four friends to choose from and will automatically and anonymously inform the selected friend of the compliment. The controlled questions ensure only positivity can be spread, encouraging a culture of community, as opposed to isolation.

Following the acquisition, Facebook claims its "next milestone will be around meeting people’s emotional needs."
