Some TikTok Features
In India, some reports say that it is prohibited to use the app.
This is very strange news, but we haven’t yet confirmed whether it’s real. TikTok is a pretty fun and practical application. It is very different from other social media applications. So it is not like any other social media app.
It is a video sharing app, not for making friends. Users can add effects and music. Any user can use the music and can record over it.
The application is completely free. If the videos you add are liked by many people, it is possible to publish on the homepage. So, millions of people can watch you.
Some of the popular videos on the TikTok app include TikTok users doing lipsyncs, dancing to popular songs and doing other entertaining stuff. It even hosts some celebrities such as Jimmy Fallon, who is an active user that is famous for contributing to the challenges. Of course, not all famous people on the app are celebrities, it creates its own famous people such as Baby Ariel who became famous for her TikTok account.
Young users like to make at least 15-second videos with the app. Not to mention the app has 500 million users. In November 2017, TikTok has bought the Musical.ly for 800 million dollars and merged the bases of the two apps in August 2018.
You can do many things from the features of the app. For example, you can do face swaps by artificial intelligence systems the app uses as a tactic.
As we mentioned above, TikTok is a great place to showcase your talents, what you’re capable of, and your sense of humor. Almost all of the teens over the globe use the app and they seem like they have built a small but happy community. It’s up to you to join them, or respect their preference and enjoy their content.
