ACCORDING to a new study, Roblox is one of the most hated apps in the world.
In case you don’t know, Roblox is a video game platform where players can dress up their avatars, play games, and create experiences and items for other players.
Essentially the metaverse for kids, it’s home to over 40 million games to play.
Electronics Hub conducted a sentiment analysis via Twitter and found that 21 countries hate Roblox more than any other app, making it the second most hated app in the world.
Dating app Hinge took first place, while Tinder took second place with 19 countries.
Roblox has been ranked as the most hated app in Ukraine, Romania, Switzerland, Portugal, France, Bulgaria, Slovakia, North Korea, and Hungary, among others.
“We processed over 3 million geotagged tweets related to 87 social media, dating, mobile gaming, entertainment, cryptocurrency and money transfer apps.” electronics hub said in the report.
“We calculated the percentage of negative tweets on each app using the HuggingFace Sentiment Analysis Tool, which determines whether a tweet has a positive, negative, or neutral sentiment.”
Obviously the data is not perfect.
Twitter is a social media platform built around adults and the majority of Roblox players are children – their opinion is not included in the data.
There is also some bias in the fact that Roblox is banned in North Korea, which could explain why there is so much negative sentiment in the country.
However, Roblox has been getting a lot of negative press publicity lately, allegedly from Exploitation of young game developers to online predators using the platform to target children.

In 2021, Roblox generated $1.9 billion in revenue.
