TikTok

Please recommend me good accounts to follow. I have one but it’s not worth following.

You can also post your own accounts in this thread if you’d like. Quantity over quality, that’s what I say.

Do you use TikTok?

  • Yes.
  • I have an account, but I don’t really use it.
  • No, and I never will.
  • No, but I might do so in the future.

I have to admit though, I do have reservations about it all. Am I right to be concerned?

  • Yes
  • No

My wife has got into TikTok during lockdown, there’s lots of properly hilarious stuff on there, people coming up with really clever takes on the same formats, and so much of it is from young PoC. Some evenings we’ve sat and scrolled it rather than watch another episode of a sitcom on Netflix and have definitely got more laughs from it. The only downside is how it affects your attention span, any video that starts with more than a couple of seconds of chat or set up gets skipped

Never say never, but it seems to be a shitload of dancing videos, and I do not give a single fuck about dancing.

Posts on Twitter which are literally just sharing someone else’s content from TikTok.

  • Fine, the video always features the creator’s username at the end, so no big deal
  • Fine, it’s drawing attention to content that some people otherwise wouldn’t see
  • Fine, who cares?
  • Not fine, such a needy thing to do
  • Not fine, it’s just stealing
  • Not fine, other reasons
  • Fine, other reasons
  • Don’t care

I haven’t got Tiktok, but I probably will get whatever new social media platform turns up when Jimbo starts getting interested, just to suss it out.

was a big fan of the tiktoks with vine energy compilations on youtube

Nobody over the age of 25 has any business being on TikTok. Let’s just let young people have this to themselves and not stink it up with our shitty gin-mum memes or whatever.

  • I agree and you are very wise
  • No I want to ruin this for the kids.

would people be more willing to agree if I hadn’t put the wise bit?

I enjoyed all of the blinded by the light dances and even tried to do one but 4yo child would not oblige (and it was actually quite a hard dance!)

My niece uses it on her dad’s phone to try some dance thing. Apparently you have to perfectly copy someone’s tiktok dance but I don’t really understand it.

Pulled already

Need another social media mindleech like a kick in the teeth, so not for me chiefs.
I will say though that some people seem to put a lot of effort into their videos which yknow can only be a good thing.

The concept of following people is not really what tiktok is about. You can follow people, but the main way you see new things is through the for you page. If you like the tiktoks that you enjoy, then you’ll get more of them. I follow a handful of people who I want to make sure that I don’t miss things from, but the algorithm is all powerful here

Also tiktok has been a mostly wonderful experience for me but I am concerned about the ownership and censorship etc. But I’m still using it because it’s fun and I guess I’m a hypocrite?

I did not know this, thanks for explaining!

I got it once but the default stuff you see before you follow anyone is loads of kids going “PRIVATE SCHOOL CHECK” and then I deleted it.
