What Does Discovery Mean On BeReal

BeReal is a new social media app that encourages users to be real. It’s a current photo sharing that is on the rise.

BeReal allows users to share what they’re doing at a random point in the day with their friends without any filters or editing.

BeReal users receive a notification at a random point in the day where they have two minutes to take a photo of what they’re currently doing.

The motive is to capture the realities of everyday life rather than create the perfect shots.

The app doesn’t provide any followers, so no followers, no likes, no ads, just your friends for real.

On BeReal you can post your instant photo privately or publicly. To post it publicly you need to post under the discovery tab.

In this article, we are going to discuss what discovery means, how to disable it, and the difference between discovery and my friend’s tab.
