TikTok is a video-sharing social media app in which people can create and share short videos.
The app was founded in 2016 and is one of the most popular apps in the world with over 1 billion downloads. TikTok offers creators a platform to post original content and their own style of lip syncing, dancing, and comedy skits to entertain themselves or their followers. Users can search for content by hashtag or category, follow other users that they like on the app, comment on videos, use music from the “TikTok Queue” for their videos, and tag friends in public comments. TikTok is backed by Chinese company Bytedance.
