Tik Tok is not only a trend, it’s a lifestyle.
The app allows people to create videos to entertain others. Each video on the app is 60 seconds or less, made in various styles such as comedy, cosplay, dancing, and singing. The videos within the app could be considered trends within a trend. Every week, the app has a new sound that becomes popular. Many users’ goal is to become “Tik Tok Famous” which consist of you getting lots of followers and likes on your videos and appearing on other users “for you page”. Many users would love the opportunity to receive over 1000 followers so they have the option to create live videos and interact with their followers. Lots of people use Tik Tok too much and could call themselves obsessed. Some users have been on Tik Tok since it was originally created as “Musical.ly” , where users would make lip syncing videos to a bunch of different songs. Ever since Musical.ly made the transition to Tik Tok, it has gained many new users and is on a path to become the “new Vine”.
