TikTok is a social media craze, and not just in China. It's a video-sharing app that ByteDance created to make it easy for people of all ages to share short videos with others. One of the most popular genres on TikTok is dance vids, but you'll also find comedy sketches or educational content too.
Tiktok has been around since 2016, formerly known as Douyin, when it debuted exclusively in China. However, its popularity quickly spread globally due to its ease of use - especially among teens who loved making quick 15 second long clips about anything from selfies or pets doing cute things. In addition, TikTok recently enabled users to create videos up to 3 minutes long, allowing it to further compete with apps like YouTube and Instagram.
