While 2014 was definitely the year of the selfie (seriously, even my mom is doing it now), Virgin Mobile is predicting 2015 will be the year of the humblebrag. Oxford Dictionary defines a “humblebrag” as “Subtly letting others now about how fantastic your life is while undercutting it with a bit of self-effacing humor or “woe is me” gloss.” You’ve probably done it yourself, even if you don’t realize it, because you don’t want to sound like a diva-brat jerkface.
The folks at BRAGselfie, a new social community and app, don’t want you to worry about downplaying your awesome adventures. Instead, they want you to show off your cute outfit, that awesome vacation spot, and that yummy dinner without limits.
“Social media makes it too easy to be someone else. BRAGselfie introduces a user interface where you don’t need to worry about social media etiquette.” Amanda Nieto, BRAGselfie’s CEO said. “We want you to share everything; be bold, be yourself.”
It’s a lot like Instagram in that you post pics, but with BRAGselfie, it’ll be way easier to scroll through way more pictures. That means no more collages or having to choose just one picture from last night’s party.
BRAGselfie is also awesome for flaunting your favorite brands. You can tag your clothing brands to show off your unique style and see where your friends got their adorable shoes.
You can download BRAGselfie on February 4th and start showing off!
