Discord acquired Gas, a compliments-based social media app for teens

Share via:

Messaging platform Discord announced its acquisition of Gas, an app that’s popular among teens for its positive spin on social media.

Users sign up with their school, add friends, and participate in polls about their classmates on Gas. However, the poll questions are designed to boost rather than undermine users’ confidence. Teens may be asked to select one of four friends who is the best DJ or has the best smile. The chosen person will then receive an anonymous message with their compliment from an unknown “boy in 10th grade” or “girl in 11th grade.” Nikita Bier founded Gas after selling a similar app called tbh to Facebook in 2017 tbh has since been shut down.
