TikTok - Make Your Day

TikTok - Make Your Day review

TikTok is a Chinese-owned video-and-music-based social network app that has now become a global video community. By using TikTok, you can create and share short funny videos spiced up by a variety of special effects and stickers. Its video-only interface makes it less sophisticated yet a lot easier to use than other social media apps. TikTok is most popular among kids under 16. Find a detailed TikTok app review below. 

The TikTok App Functionality & Security

First things first, here’s a glimpse at the key TikTok features:

  • Tons of vids under a variety of categories;
  • A wide array of effects, filters, and other perks for creating and sharing your unique content;
  • The possibility to follow people whose vids you fancy;
  • The ‘like’ and ‘comment’ functionality for staying in touch with the creators you like; 
  • The possibility to record videos with popular songs or upload videos from your smartphone;
  • The possibility to save recorded videos.

Overall, the TikTop app has significantly simplified video sharing and creating, taking the process to a whole new level. All you need to do to create fun video content is record anything and everything from your daily routine and upload it. Because of the short format, creating and watching vids via TikTok is easy and never time-consuming.

In accordance with the TikTok Terms and Conditions, you should be at least 13 years of age to start taking advantage of this app. Because TikTok is immensely popular among teens, security is a paramount concern. A lot of parents are worried that via TikTok their kids are exposed to videos with adult content. 

In addition to this, the TikTok application makes it easy for predators and bullies to hunt for their victims. Therefore, it is advised that you ask your child to restrict their public-by-default TikTok account by selecting the Friends only option. It will prevent complete strangers from contacting your children via the app. 

Zooming in on TikTok: More Details

If you’ve switched from Instagram to TikTok, using the latter will most likely take some getting used to. Unlike Instagram that allows you to alternate between the vertical mobile view and PC-based horizontal mode, TikTok is filled with vertical vids that occupy most of your screen space. 

One thing is for sure: once you get used to TikTok, you may find Facebook and Instagram boring. Oh yes, TikTok is that addictive… The app allows you to log in using your Google, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter account. Alternatively, you can set up a unique TikTok profile using your email address or phone number.  

Your smartphone, your imagination, and creativity are everything you need to start making cool vids via TikTok. The app allows you to share videos created via external editor apps. Needless to say that the most exciting aspect of the whole thing is social. Make your content public, and other people will easily find it via hashtags, geodata, or via recommendations. 

We recommend you to download TikTok as it is a fantastic service for unlocking and developing your creative potential. By making the most of the app, its users will have lots of fun creating, editing, communicating with like-minded teens, as well as perfecting their directing, editing, acting, and/or singing skills.

Pros:

  • Heaps of fun content
  • Easy to use
  • Extremely entertaining
  • Lots of music
  • Tpossibility to slow down and speed up your vids

Cons:

  • It’s addictive (your kids will definitely prefer TikTok to books)
  • Can be a ‘hunting ground’ for predators and bullies
