A typical and popular approach is to use a disingenuous complaint about something, a self-deprecating statement or a comment on something completely innocuous, as a vehicle to deliver the real message, which invariably shows the person in a favourable light. In fact it shows what Slapdick they are.
Stayin humble. Always grateful. "Good things come to those who wait." Lovin my new whip. #HardWorkPaysOff

Gloria: "I was trying to save a drowning child but my GIANT boobs are just so huge that they fall out of my bathing suit and got in the way of my life saving efforts."

Me: "Poor baby! You and your GIANT boobs got in the way of saving a kid. What a great humblebrag."

This is when people tell stories that are mostly true or at least plausible, and it may seem like innocent casual conversation at first, but then the real message is delivered through some sort of subtle self-promotion. Then you wonder whether ANY of the damn story was real or if it was all contrived so the speaker can brag about how wonderful they (think they) are in some way.
Girl: OMG Nick Jonas was at the Packers game yesterday and he sat in the row in front of us and he just kept turning around staring right at me and I was like wtf is he staring at. #humblebrag
