What is TikTok?
TikTok is a Chinese short-form video hosting service that hosts many different videos of dancing, stunts, tricks, and entertainment. Initially launched in China, it rapidly became a viral application that challenged the status quo and has created a new kind of social media with billions of annual users. Everything is simple with TikTok, and you will be able to create original content with other users and enjoy the vast music library.
What are the key features of TikTok?
- Create easily: With TikTok, you can create short videos for up to one minute. You can either create your video from scratch or use another TikTok video. Note that the content you create can be made live or pre-recorded, then you can share one or several of them in a few steps.
- Creator-crediting: You can credit, tag, and mention video creators and trend originators in your posts to share your sources of inspiration and encourage that kind of practice. This kind of practice will become more and more common in TikTok as the app tries to promote the culture or credit.
- Make your video unique: Thanks to facial recognition, you can easily use multiple filters and effects to make your video look the way you want. You can also modify parameters such as the recording speed, adding voice, including text, or dynamically switching between your device's front and rear cameras. Once your video is finished, you can edit your creation and add hashtags to reach a wider audience.
- Make a duet: This is one of the most outstanding features of the application. It allows you to interact with another user’s video in various ways, such as singing a duet, commenting on their performance, parodying it, and much more, depending on your creativity. Two formats are available; the first is the split-screen format with two equal parts, the second is the format where the main video takes the whole screen, and the other is where you can react in a smaller window.
- A large music library: TikTok has a vast music library including all the new popular songs and classics such as “Dreams”, a song by the British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac released in 1977 added after a user made it viral. Keep in mind that one of the concepts of TikTok is that you can “steal” and use the song produced by another TikToker.
- React and interact: Watch other users’ videos and follow them to watch more, comment and react to their posts, and interact with the whole community to get more followers.
- Constantly reinvent: You can download the videos you want and use them to make new GIFs, watch them later, or watch them on social networks. For example, TikTok clips are pretty usual on Twitter.
