WHAT IS IT?
BeReal is a social media app where users simultaneously post a photo of themselves and their surroundings. The time changes each day. Users get a notification to take an image, shot by their front and rear phone cameras. They can react to posts with comments and RealMojis, selfies of them displaying different emotions. Users need to post content in order to view other users submissions. This app encourages users to share their authentic self as it does not allow filtering and editing.
WHAT WE SAY:
Treat with caution.
