40 TBH Pictures For Instagram
As soon as you were a young teenager creating your first social media pages in the mid-2000s, you began to see the viral trend of “TBH” posts makes their way around your feed. The whole idea seemed pretty crazy; you liked their post and they told you their raw, unfiltered opinion of you, hence the acronym standing for “to be honest.” At first, you stared at their post, wondering if anyone really cared so much about what that one person thought, but as you saw more likes rake in, you found your mouse drawing nearer to the button that would bring the fad into your life as well. From there, it’s like a snowball effect. You like every status you see, even if you don’t know the person well. You wonder which favorite memory your best friend will share, or if that girl is over your fight from two years ago? You start posting TBH statuses yourself and the game is even more fun.
But what is a TBH really today? Because it’s so done and known, TBHing is an art. Everyone knows that it’s no fun unless you get a lot of people to like your picture. So many people will ghost your picture if it’s not intriguing or eye-catching; you have to add just the right appeal to get someone to stop and double tap. Once you have mastered the different ways in making someone become apart of the game, you can control your feed and see the likes pour in. The key is to remember to be unique but stay true to yourself. If your TBH has the right amount of you in it, combined with current trends, you should find yourself with a steady stream of likes! Without further ado, here are totally Instagrammable TBH pictures.
