It’s Time To “BeReal”
BeReal App Grows In Popularity
The BeReal app is increasing in popularity among students. Students taking their daily pictures in class or sporting events.
BeReal sends a notification once a day at a random time and users have 2 minutes to go on and take a picture with front and back cameras on their phone.
Preston Ludlow says, “It is different from other apps. It is more genuine and not fake. I love seeing what my friends are doing everyday.”

That’s the point of BeReal. Alexis Barreyat, a former GoPro employee, founded the app in 2020. But the app didn’t hit its stride in the U.S. until this year, generating 10 million active users.
Peter Affleck has a different opinion on the app, “I think it is pointless, the concept is really cool but I don’t understand how they make money. I don’t trust the app.”
“The only money BeReal has made is through investments. As of September 2022, BeReal does not require any subscriptions or in-app purchases. They also do not have any in-app advertisements,” according to a Online Optimist article.
Kaia Stewart said, “I love BeReal, it makes my day when I get the notification when I’m out doing something cool.”
It looks like BeReal will continue to grow with a lot of support from people on the app.
