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
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
