What is BeReal?

BeReal is a social media app developed in France that was published in 2020. Alexis Barreyat created it, and it became popular with Gen Z in early 2022. It works by inviting users to share a photo of themselves doing whatever they like during a two-minute window chosen at random each day.

Features

Sass

Discover public content.

Under the discovery tab, you can also see public content, which you can also react to with a range of "RealMojis", which are unique emojis but given a name aligned with the "realness" of the app — the emojis are variations of the selfies you've taken yourself. There's also a stipulation here: you can only see other people's content if you've posted your own BeReal.

Sass

See where friends are in the world.

Other features in the app include a Snapchat-like map, where you can see where your contacts are in the world.

Sass

Add contacts and find friends.

The app will then send a pop-up asking to access your contacts. The whole point is to share with your friends, so allowing this would probably be the best way to use it — although, as I found later, you can share photos publicly with strangers, too. Just before you post, you can set your post to share with friends or the public.
