Ratings and Reviews
For its millions of users, seeing and being seen on BeReal is a comfort. Its photo-only feed gives an authentic glimpse of what the people you care about most are experiencing as they go about their day. The app’s simplicity reintroduces what feels like a novel idea: a realistic glimpse into what your friends are doing, seeing, and experiencing.
Instagram but without the Toxicity
Love the whole idea of bereal! It’s so refreshing to see my friends share their not so Instagram-able parts of their days and strip away all of the unrealistic expectations social media has put on us all.
My only constructive criticisms are these: (1) the bugs. I’m sure they’re constantly being worked on and the app has gotten more reliable in the 4 months I’ve had it on my phone. But randomly, I’ll still find I have to restart my phone or delete and reinstall the app for it to work. Not as often as before, but still sometimes. (2) there should be a limit to how late you can post. I love that everyone shoots for that 2 minute window, but I understand that sometimes, you might not have your phone on you at that exact time or you’re really busy and can’t snap the photo. But really often, I’ve seen people (carrying over the mentality from Instagram) wait 7, 8, 9+ hours until they’re at a concert or until they’re with their friends to post - I’m guilty of it too, I’ll admit. I think there should be, in addition to the “on-time 2 minute” winodow, an “hour or two total” late window and after that, no one can post. This would also limit the absurd amount of notifications the app sends out.
Just thoughts! Love it though!
We Love Being Real!!!!
“It’s like an insight to everyone’s life that you didn’t know you needed.”
Peyton and Char are BeReal advocates. We love BeReal. The way that that everyone is truly real is crazy in this fake society. On Instagram, all we see is edited models doing unimaginable things that we regular folk can only wish that we could do. With BeReal, however, everyone is encouraged to BE REAL!!!! Not only do we see people in their true form being lazy, going to concerts, hanging out with friends, or just petting their dog, we also get to see people we normally wouldn’t talk to react to our lives in a positive way. It’s exciting to see everyone’s reaction when the notification is sent out everyone - regardless of who they are - is ecstatic to just be real. The rawness of the app shows what a real human being is. The reality is, we’re not always at the beach looking snatched or at concerts with our friends. It’s reassuring to know you’re not the only person just sitting on your couch all day. NOT ONLY THAT, but there is nothing - I mean nothing - that you can pay for!!!! There is no pressure to get the best version of the app, just a bunch of people posting on the same app at the same time just being real.
