What does TBH mean?
TBH is just an shortened way of saying TO BE HONEST. Do you get now? As long as we have a lot of people who know what this means already. We are still getting lots of guys who are still unsure of the meaning of TBH.
TBH was an acronym that was first used on Facebook late 2010 into early 2011. That was the era when there was a lot of shortened form of English words and the teens took advantage of that period to shorten to be honest into TBH.
At that time, teens wanted to get comments and likes from their fellow followers and they came up with ‘Who will my like my picture for tbh’. What this mean was that for each likes on a person’s page. The liker get a honest view of his/ her personality on his/ her facebook wall
Depending on who the person is , TBH comments can range from being nice to being nasty.

What does TBH mean on Instagram
When you check a lot of Instagram profiles, especially profile owned by Americans, TBH is the new currency. A lot of these users use TBH to accumulate likes and comments to a particular post. There was a 15 year old teen that posted about 5 pictures on her instagram feed and requested for likes to get a ‘tbh’.
This means that when you like her picture she will make a ‘to be honest’ review of you. Whether it is a good or bad review, it is honest. That is the fad! Another name for ‘tbh’ on Instagram is ‘to be heard’.
I decided to probe a little bit further to ask what they mean by ‘TBH and rate’. What a teen told me was that they usually do this to rate a post on Instagram or to connect with other users.
Usually when I am bored, I just drop a TBH post and then send the hashtag #likefortbh. Within seconds I would begin to get likes and comments on my post. As soon as this happen, I will go to all my likers’ pages and drop a tbh comment on their posts as well. It is either we stop at that or take it a step further, getting to know ourselves’.
Diane also told me when I asked her what does TBH mean on Instagram that;
A TBH is usually a way to converse with various people on Instagram. People that ordinarily due to some reasons, you would not want to talk to. It is a way to connect with friends of your friends that you have not met in real life, to build a kinda online friendship with them!
Rachel in her opinion said that although TBH means to be honest, a lot of people are not really being honest in their reviews. In order to build connection and friendship. A lot of people draw away from being very objective and as such they give a very biased opinion ‘tbh’. Most times, in order to see a lie as blatant they just go for generic truth, and not give depths to the reason for ‘tbh and rate’.
Say for instance when I say you are always online, or you have got cute eyebrows! Hell! Don’t I know that already?
Finnin in his remark said that he doesn’t give a hoot about friendship or not. TBH is a game. Say the truth, get your like and move on!
‘When I drop a TBH comment on a post. It is usually what I noticed about that user and not lies. Like me or hate, it is ‘tbh and rate’. Done and dusted.
I am not sure if Nigerians engage in such activities like the Americans. While Nigerians use tbh in their comments to pass judgement and personal opinions. I do not think a lot of Nigerians use ‘tbh and rate’ posts on their feed! Or do you have anyone who does?
I know that Nigerians are gradually beginning to get used to ‘tbh’ and the question of what does tbh mean on Instagram has reduced drastically.
For those thinking a TBH means a nasty comment or snarky signal should understand that, a TBH doesn not serve such intentions. It is just an opportunity to give an honest and objective opinion about your online personality through your posts and presence. It is therefore important that your get that right and enjoy a tbh on Instagram or a tbh on Facebook and wherever it is used!
The explanation above has at least provided more pointers to ease your inquisitiveness.
