BeReal is an app in which we can react to other users’ posts. Not knowing how to like a photo on BeReal is normal, because there are no likes on BeReal, only reactions. We can react to other people’s posts in 5 ways in which we will imitate a different emoji in each one. The emojis that we will imitate are the thumbs up, the smile, the surprise, the crush and the laughter. The closest thing to like is the thumbs up. When we press one of them, we will take a selfie where we will imitate it to send it privately to the person who uploaded the post.
To react to a post, we will click on the smiley emoji in the lower right corner of the post . After doing so, we will choose 1 of the 5 emojis to react. We will touch the desired one to open the front camera, with which we will imitate the emoji gesture. If the selfie does not convince us, we can click on the cross in the upper right corner of the photo to delete this attempt and repeat the photo. When we are convinced of the selfie, we will click on the blue arrow to send it. On the other hand, we can also capture a personalized reaction by clicking on the circle below.
Remember that to see the BeReal of other users who are not your friends, you must have published your daily BeReal . This will unblock posts from the Discovery window, where you see posts from strangers. On the other hand, before publishing your BeReal, you can choose if it is only visible to your friends or, also, to strangers. Even if you choose to only be visible to your friends, you will still be able to see posts from Discovery. Lastly, it is possible to implement your location in the post , although strangers’ posts will belong to random locations. This is valid for Android, as well as for iPhone.
HOW TO CUSTOMIZE BEREAL PHOTO REACTIONS
After clarifying how to like a BeReal photo, we will explain how to customize BeReal photo reactions . When we imitate an emoji, the selfie will be saved and we will not have to take a picture again. In the future we can just tap on the reaction to send that default photo. However, it is always possible to replace that photo. To do this, long press on a reaction and press the delete cross when it appears. After deleting the selfie, you must take another similar one imitating the reaction. This will stay saved. If in the future you want to replace it again, repeat the above process.
DO I HAVE TO SHOW MY FACE TO LIKE BEREAL?
The idea of the reactions is that you imitate the emoji, so your face should come out. However, it is not necessary, you can send a reaction in which you do not appear, cover your face or directly block the camera with your hand. So the answer to “do I have to show my face to like BeReal?” is that it is not mandatory to show your face . Of course, as the founders of BeReal affirm , the application is designed so that you show your face naturally and without filters.
HOW TO KNOW WHAT REACTION THEY HAVE HAD TO MY BEREAL PHOTO
We know how to like a BeReal photo and how to customize the reactions, but we still have to know what reaction they have had to my BeReal photo . You can only see the reactions to your current BeReal, not those of previous posts. On the other hand, other users cannot see the number of reactions to your posts, only theirs. To see the reactions, click on your current BeReal, where the reactions to it will appear. The number of comments and whether screenshots have been taken on your post will also be listed. A BeReal lasts from its publication until it is possible to capture the next day’s.
