TikTok is a popular social network app that allows its users to interact through short clips up to 60 seconds long. These videos usually range from short lip-sync parodies to funny and ironical sketches.
The interface is as user-friendly as it can be. You won’t have to get through different instructions or complicated categories. In fact, trending videos will be the first thing you’ll see when opening this app and browsing through them is just a matter of a vertical swipe. If you’ll decide to make your own piece of art, then you simply click the giant “+” button at the bottom of the screen and do your thing. Therefore, the interface was designed in such a way that the whole experience could be pretty straightforward.
What really makes TikTok standout is its tremendous community. Once TikTok is downloaded, users are free to view and create any videos they want. The most popular creators are listed at the trending tab, while specific users, songs or hashtags can be found through the exploration section. The app contains hundreds of thousands of user-created videos, which makes it a powerful entertaining platform and a direct competitor to older more traditional social media.
TikTok provides you with many tools and filters so you could create the most outstanding and amusing content for your current and future fans. Clips can be easily cut, trimmed, duplicated and merged. More than 100 emoji’s can be applied straight to the videos to make it funnier.
Videos may even include popular music or prerecorded dialogues for extra portion of amusement. And if that’s not enough, then there’s always a possibility to add your reaction on other people’s content. The app will record you as you watch someone’s video and will place your reaction near the original. The process will repeat if someone decides to make a reaction on your reaction and that can go on forever.
The whole idea of social networking through music videos is very innovative and is definitely will be expanding in the near future. TikTok is a pioneer in this industry so sometimes bugs and lags can be observed when using its key features. Also, parents must be aware that videos may contain sexual references or swearing and better adjust privacy settings on children’s phones. The best thing about TikTok though is that even if you’re not creating content, you’ll always find something entertaining among other videos.
The app is available for all devices with Android 4.1 or later. For iPhones, iPads and iPods a minimum of iOS 9.3 or later is required.
TikTok is a completely new approach to social networking. The platform allows its users to interact through short videos that can be edited in any possible way. The community is large, and thousands of videos are added daily. Everyone can start making videos and gain fame here. To do that you don’t need any special equipment, but only a smartphone with Android or iOS.
