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.

When you, usually consciously, try to get away with bragging about yourself by couching it in a phony show of humility.
"Your inflatable inner-tube is way cooler than my 80-foot yacht. You get to be so much closer to the water and to nature. I envy you, I really do"

"Thanks, that means a lot. Another advantage of having an innertube is that I don't have to fucking humble brag all the time about having a yacht."

A form self promotion where the promoter thinks he is, almost subliminally, bragging about himself in the context of a humble statement or complaint. Everyone listening thinks he a jackass.
I am exhausted from my two week vacation to Hawaii. I need a vacation.

Nice Humble Brag, asshole.

The lowest, most despicable and loathsome form of self promotion, often delivered in a terse one or two fragmented sentences on social networking sites. 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 an attention seeking and insecure person they really are.
Humblebrag example: "Just stepped in gum. Who spits gum on the red carpet?"
Appropriate response(s): "Fuck off bitch"

Humblebrag example: "I can't believe I sounded like such a idiot on TV last night"
Appropriate response(s): "Believe it, idiot"

To bring up one's accomplishments in conversation and contextualize them as a harrowing burden or the product of an accident or fluke.
Peter was telling me that he has four job offers, but he doesn't know how it happened because he's "dumber than an unfrozen cavemen." I wish that dude would just own up to his accomplishments, I'm tired of his humblebrag routine.

a brag statement artfully planted within a slightly deprecating statement; used in order to conceal pride that would otherwise be apparent
I'm really ticked that I wasn't able to improve my bench max by 25 pounds this week! (humblebrag since his main intent is to expose that he works out)

When someone complains, quite often on social media, about something that they are lucky to have. The humblebrag also includes buzzwords, so as to truly "explain the conundrum".
"Filming on set is a complete test of patience! You know your in Hollywood when you have to cut every other second for a helicopter or an ambulance!" (a legitimate humblebrag that was found on Facebook)
