It's Utah's chance for a #humblebrag — according to the results of a HeyLets.com mobile app survey that asked 2,500 Americans to rate the number of posts they make on self-promotional topics on social media, Utah ranks as the No. 1 most humble state in the U.S.
"On social networks like Facebook and Instagram, many so-called 'status updates' are really 'brag-ommendations,' — opportunities to enhance your status with friends and followers by showcasing your apparently amazing life," the HeyLets.com news release said.
These "bragging" updates might include things like special trips, attendance at memorable events and positive work-related news.
According to the site's rankings, Utah was named the No. 1 most humble state, followed by Oregon, South Carolina, Kansas and Arizona. Only 22 percent of Utah residents claimed to post bragging updates on social media.
California was named as the "most braggadocious" state, with 77 percent of the state's residents saying they posted "bragging" updates. California was followed by Washington, Nevada, Maryland and New Hampshire.
