TikTok is a Chinese video-sharing app that was previously known as Douyin. It was merged, later on, with another popular app Musical.ly. TikTok has since gained immense popularity across the globe, with millions of users using the app and uploading videos on it regularly. With its rise, the top TikTok users have also reached new heights, and some have even become celebrities.
TikTok is a medium to reach out to a broader audience within a few seconds of posting a video, and it becomes much more encouraging when you participate in the latest trends gaining more followers on the road to becoming a TikTok star. The app allows you to create, upload, and share a video up to 15 seconds long using various editing tools and effects and do all crazy stuff, be it lip-syncing to a music track, enjoying fun acts, or just dancing to the music of your choice playing in the background. Many of the creators of other platforms like YouTube have opted for TikTok and now are Top TikTok Users.
There are a variety of trends within TikTok, including memes, lip-synced songs, and comedy videos. Duets, a feature that allows users to add their video to an existing video with the original content’s audio, have sparked most of these trends.
Trends are shown on TikTok’s explore page or the page with the search logo. The page enlists the trending hashtags and challenges among the app. Some include #filterswitch, #wannalisten, #pillowchallenge, #makeeverysecondcount, #furrywar, #hitormiss, #posechallenge, #bottlecapchallenge and more.
