Why I’m Obsessed with TIKTOK

For me, TikTok is the most engaging social media app to come around in a long time. It’s a place where we can all hang loose and get away from the more pressing matters of the day. From creating or learning the new dance crazes; to hearing about someone’s divorce; to sending love to folks who are struggling with an illness; to mourning the loss of those who didn’t make it; to the kids who prank their parents viciously; and to the parents who prank their kids back, this app with over a billion and half users is the next big thing. Market demo numbers might make you believe this app is for 18–24 year-olds, but this 50-year-old will tell you, that’s a straight-up lie. From what I’ve seen, this app is for all ages and if you haven’t browsed around yet, you’ll soon find out I’m not wrong. You will find Boomers 1 and 2, Gen Xs, Gen Ys, Gen Zs, and don’t be surprised if you find a few Post War Cohorts.
