Hello, my bucket list friends! I’ve been meaning to write this post for a little while. One day when I was scrolling through my WordPress news feed, I ended up reading a blog post that mentioned an app called Be Real. ( You can read the post HERE) It sounded interesting and I ended up downloading it. If you haven’t heard about this app before let me explain it. You post a photo once a day. When you take a photo on the app it uses both the front and the back camera. You post on the app when you get a notification. You have two minutes to post a picture of what you are doing at the moment. If you post after the two minute window your post is considered to be late. You can still post after the two minutes have past but the amount of time your were late will be displayed with your post. The whole idea of the app is to share your real unedited life. On other social media apps we tend to post the highlights of our lives and there is nothing wrong with that. However, it makes it easy to forget that nobody’s life is perfect. It’s easy to edit or use filters on social media sites but with Be Real you can’t do that. I want to make it perfectly clear that I really love using social media! I know it has downsides but overall I enjoy it. I love expressing myself and watching other people expressing themselves. It’s a great place to discover ideas and to be encouraged. I say all this because while Be Real is technically a social media app, it has been referred to as an anti social media platform. I personally never thought of it that way though. I think of it is as a fun new spin on social media. With Be Real I definitely share pictures of things that I normally wouldn’t usually post. Such as the break area at work, my microwave dinner, the ceiling at the airport and much more. I don’t always look my best in the pictures I post and I’m 100% ok with that. I like that Be Real encourages you to post some of the everyday moments that you probably wouldn’t think of sharing. I do have to admit that sometimes when I get a notification to share a picture I wait until I’m going to be doing something like shopping that I want to share. Also Sometimes especially when I’m working I don’t see the notification until later. There have been times when I wait to post one just because I’m busy or tired. However, I haven’t missed a day of posting since I started using Be Real. However, I really wish I knew more people who used this app. If you would like to add me user name is summerrockstar. I hope to see you on the app! Thanks for reading!
