Tiktok brings joy to the world

acAnela and Marco Selorio[12377]TikTok has taken over the world by storm. This cool video-sharing app has given people a new outlet during this coronavirus pandemic.

Ever since the lockdowns and quarantines started across the globe, people have been stuck at home trying to find ways to stay active, engaged and productive. Once you have cooked your meals, cleaned your house, mowed the lawn, washed your clothes and dishes, watched a few Netflix movies, then what? The answer – get on to TikTok.

TikTok is a Chinese-developed app that allows you to create and share short videos with your phone. You can make 15, 30 or 60 second videos easily because the app has its own editing effects and features.

This new social media platform has a wide range of categories and filters that keeps you engaged. You can swipe up the “For You” front page section that features the hottest and newly-created videos. Some are funny, corny, educational and innovative.

The cool thing about TikTok is that none are super-famous celebrities but are just your average-kid next door turned social-media star.

TikTok’s popularity has been fuelled by these new personalities who create a lot of homemade videos, trending sounds and hashtag challenges.

Some of the most famous “TikTokers” include Charli D’Amelio (43 Million followers), Loren Gray (40.8M), Zach King (37M), Riyaz Aly (32M), Baby Ariel (30M), Addison Re (29M) and Spencer Knight (25M).

Canadian-Filipina teen sensation AC Bonifacio (1.9M) is all over TikTok too.

“TikTok has become a platform where you can do anything. Not just dancing or singing, you can also do acting, modelling, cooking, literally everything. It’s something you can do for fun. For some reason, people can go viral, everyone loves doing it.”

Australian-based event creator and talent manager Marco Selorio, who works with rising young TikTok Philippine stars such as Cahil Manila (1.8M followers), Shaina Gayle (438K) and Aldrich Ang (108K), recently jumped on the TikTok bandwagon.

“I’ve been doing TikTok dance videos with my daughter Anela to keep ourselves occupied and entertained. We got so much time in our hands now. We watch together and try to copy some of the fun dance challenges. It’s a workout for me, to be honest, but it also gives me an outlet to create new ideas in this downtime.”

If you got nothing better to do at home, TikTok might have the answer to all your worries. You might just become the next accidental TikTok star.
