Everyone has heard about the current, most popular social media platform,TikTok. It was once called musical.ly, but on January 23, 2018 it became TikTok.
First of all, TikTok is the most favored social media, racking up around 1 billion users per month. Within a year of being open to the public, it got 100 million users, with more than 1 billion videos viewed per day. It is the world’s fastest-growing app and it has been downaloaded over 1.2 billion times. In addition, TikTok allows you to make fun, creative videos for you to edit, share, comment, and like. It’s videos usually range from 5-15 seconds, but can go up to one minute. It is available in over 150 countries and 75 languages. In the Apple store, and Google play, it is the most downloaded app, and almost everyone finds it in their “recommended” section. Also, Forty-one percent of users are ages 16-24, and out of all the users 41% are female and 59% are male. While the recommended time spent on TikTok per day is 30-45 minutes, the world average is 54-70 minutes per day. Twenty-six and a half million users out of the 500 million users are from the U.S.A.
Next, I have had TikTok for almost over a year now, and I love it! It is a perfect way to spend my time when I’m bored or if I feel like going on my phone. I love being able to create my own videos or react to other people’s. Although videos sometimes have inappropriate language or messages, it is aimed to be suitable for teens and other older people. A great way to prevent this is by following and watching the right people. There are many, many accounts aimed for a younger audience that don’t cuss or talk about unfitting topics.
Lastly, TikTok is a very entertaining social media app. It’s made to make you laugh and be more creative. I love this app and really enjoy all of it’s perks.
