If you are into social media, then you must be aware of what the Tiktok app is and what exactly it does. Generally, Tiktok is a social networking app that allows its users to create a 60-second long video using their built-in editor and enables them to share it with their friends. Those who are very familiar with Musical.ly that went down last 2017, Tiktok shares a lot of similarities. You can create videos, pick your preferred music, applies various filters, stickers, and effects. Users can edit the video and share the result with their friends.
Be Creative and Make Your Own Video
The main goal of Tiktok is to allow its users to unleash the best of their creativity. It is not a simple video editing app that only enables you to take a snap and add colorful stickers and filters. This app can become your very own studio. Setting it up is very simple. After you download the app, you will be asked to sign up for an account. You can sign up using an email or an existing Facebook, Google, Instagram, or Twitter Accounts. Input the information required and make sure you are 13 years old and above to get and access.
Interestingly, the app comes with a very simple and user-friendly interface. The app prompts you immediately to your dashboard that features a feed of videos that are already uploaded by the Tiktok community. You can also create your own video by simply tap the plus sign at the bottom of the screen and the camera will open. Similar to how Snapchat works, tap the red button and start recording your video. During recording, users can input their preferred music from Tiktok’s huge library. You can lipsync, dance, or make a skit during the music until the video ends.
Connect With Your Audience and Follow Content Creators
The best part about this app is the huge community of Tiktok users that you can connect with. Users can build their own or join an existing community of creators. The dashboard is divided into two parts; the first tab features recommended videos from various creators you might consider following. Tiktok has become a great platform for various content creators to unleash the best of their creativity. This makes Tiktok a never-ending variety show providing pure and colorful entertainment.
The next tab, on the other hand, features a feed of videos uploaded by the people you choose to follow. These could either be videos from your friends or videos uploaded by your favorite content creator. If you are creative enough, you can also establish your own fan base and connect with your fans at any given time through Stories or better yet Tiktok live streaming.
Explore Effects and Filters
This app is definitely not just your typical social networking application. It allows users to express the best of their creativity. Users can take advantage of the effects and filters that they can apply for each video. The app also features an array of AR effects that can be used in videos. You can virtually change the color of your hair, your eyes or even transform yourself into a cartoon and anything alike. TikTok also encourages users to join their challenges and often comes with a unique hashtag. This is the most effective way to attract new friends and build your own community.
Similar to Snapchat and the defunct apps like Vine and Dubsmash, Tiktok shares the same amount of success. It is fun to use and will surely put your creativity on a great test. Creating short videos is simple yet surprisingly tricky but as soon as you get used to it, you can produce and share videos in no time. The app features a lot of great effects and a huge library of short music ranging from song excerpts, clips from movies, tv-series, and many others. If you think you are creative enough, you might as well consider downloading this app on your mobile. Currently, the app is available for both Android and iOS devices. Have fun!
