    The majority of the videos on TIK TOK are meant to provide some form of amusement and for the most part, they deliver, however some videos involve issues which require mental processing such as contemplation, evolving and action while others will literally tear at your heart’s strings. I enjoy this app quite a lot and wish that I had downloaded it sooner. It provides an escape, something any and all of us can relate to, whether the day has been difficult at home with pressures, aggravation in the workplace or school or whether something unforeseen has happened outside of the realms listed above. The videos can also be politicized with extremist views with I feel are inappropriate especially during this time of uncertainty due to the virus. We utilize the social media stage as a form empowerment and free speech and while our speech is protected under the first amendment, there are soon who will no doubt abuse their privilege, both saying and doing things in which the first amendment doesn’t protect us. I update my phone and apps as needed and have never encountered a problem with it the app. There are some who feel they must utilize their verbiage to inflict pain or mental discomfort and to that and those, who do so or act inappropriate to regarding an issue with a child or someone disabled, WELL BUTTERCUP YOUR DAY IS COMING. It may be big or small, significant or not,but it will happen, MARK MY WORDS!
  • Misleading reviews, honest opinion from someone who has 100k

    By YoItsFrostyy
    This app has a lot of misleading reviews but I will try to explain everything in detail so you don’t make a bad choice. As someone who has over 100k on the app I can tell you that this app has a lot of things you need to know before getting it. The first major thing is the public and private accounts. If you have a child who wants to download the app, I would recommend they make a private account, so they do not get harassed on their page. That brings me to the biggest problem, the harassment. If you happen to have the slightest different opinion, and are public about the opinion, there will most likely be at least one person who will go onto your page for the sole reason of harassing you. The second major thing is the for you page. This is similar to YouTube’s “recommended” page, but has a heavier algorithm. Your child/teen will most likely see some things they don’t like, or just don’t care for, when they first make an account, but once they start liking or skipping videos the algorithm will start to pander to their beliefs/things they like. For example, if your child doesn’t like dancing, but likes video games, if they don’t like the dancing videos and like the video games’ videos, they will be prone to viewing more video game videos.
  • It was great until

    By Harper Colgan
    Ok so TikTok was great until i would try to make a TikTok and once i was done with it it would delete it and i tried to make like five TikToks with different sounds and it does the same thing i also think that it is annoying when i get off TikTok for like five minutes and then when i get back on it it make me repick what i like to watch and also tell me how to swipe, so i think all it needs to do is fix whatever is happening and all of the other things is good. Oh and i think everybody should be able to go live it is stupid that you have this amount of followers or likes for you to go live and i think you guys are picking who go on the for you page because everyone has a chance to go viral but you are inly letting certain people do that because my stepsister did a TikTok and it was just a remix of different TikTok songs and she said, “whoever can name all of the songs gets a prize!” And then it got like 22k views and like 890 likes but all of her other TikToks get 2-10 likes. Another thing that they need to change is when you are on it for a certain amount of time and them it decides to say your tapping to fast and also that why the heck do you get a notification if someone you aren’t even following is live?? Like why it’s so stupid. So i think TikTok should change a lot of things.
  • This is an okay app.

    By Sunsetu_baller
    This is an okay app because every time that I delete it and then the next day I try to get it back I have to make a new account on it and get all of my fans and followers back and I hate it!!!!!!! I have to delete it because there is so much bugs and stuff that it glitches me out of the app. Then I have to login AGAIN and then after like 2-3 hours or so it glitches me out AGAIN therefore y’all need to go in and fix it please. About the updates. I think that the new updates are cool and all but....... I hate it that you guys got rid of the emojis I loved them and I was also wondering why you made us clocks/muser’s like why can’t it just be one thing instead of me telling my friend to get the app and her being confused about which name it is. I also hate that you have to reach 1,000 followers to get lively. I fell like lively should be for anyone who has tic toc/musically like come on people. What if someone can’t go viral because they only have 690 followers like not everyone can get that far like me I only have about 30 and getting to 1,000 it’s like “what the heck is wrong I thought that there was no certain amount?” I’m confused and having to buy stuff on lively like that’s stupid I’m sorry but I don’t want to wast my money like why can’t there just be adds. Can you please fix this.
  • Endless creative and inspirational creators

    By Janebon55
    There is so much good here. I am an observer. New to TikTok by a few months. But what I have seen is amazing. From the loud motivation of the mouth popping mama, the soft spoken lady Leah who missed her calling as a motivational speaker, to the be better crew, and the you’re awesome cup holder and let’s not forget the red bearded x school teacher and SupDaily’s good morning walks. Entertaining Mini series by the mafia crew and tv mimic skits like Friends. POV content from so many that truly makes you think. The military down range support started and lead by CSM. Interactive music, new music creation and independent promotion. Large groups like the Bangtan Boys to small self starters who are extremely talented. I can’t forget the old classics used in new exciting ways. The artists who put brush to canvas or pencil to paper blow me away with their skill levels. I could go on and on. What is most amazing and what they all have in common is they have the same goal in the end. Just to make the place we live a nicer, more compassionate, giving world. To make sure everyone pitches in to help each other and to love life no matter who you are. It’s a pretty awesome place to spend time in. I will continue to observe with a smile, laughter and a few tears from time to time.
  • Here’s a review !🥰

    By Here you are!
    I enjoy this app a lot and all the thing that you have added is wonderful! The only problem is when you report someone, it doesn’t do much. I think that you should be able to report someone and they would not be able to go on with doing the same thing they did, though thankfully- more than one person has to report the user, but indeed I have an idea you could add! The person should be active on their account at least 3 days so the same person does not report them with different accounts they are making. I suggest this app for many people that should be at least 10, basically double digits due to multiple swears that are allowed on this app. Maybe more edit options like, example; Camera swinging from on direction to the original video. This app is definitely absolutely perfect for people who enjoy making videos for others to see and enjoy! Though maybe make accounts get to the for you page more since its uncommon people search up a hashtag and find your video. Though I absolutely can’t stand this app, it’s amazing! And for another suggestion you should definitely add, make notifications for people messaging you and not allow spam if that is already added to the app, I suggest this app for you if you are looking forward to getting it! Enjoy 😊
  • Great app but a few issues

    By Sophia Vlogs
    Tik tok is a great app but when they say 12+ they mean it there is profanity in songs and more..... To me that is fine because i’m 14. But sometimes tik tok does not come to a matter to fix some problems for example suspension has happened a lot lately and A LOT of tik tokers has addressed that during their live streams they have been suspended for no reason which is very annoying since you need 1000 followers to create a live. Lately Tik tok has been glitching, I have liked various videos but they end up in my liked videos, when i’m scrolling through the for you page or a tik tokers account the video was not liked. That annoys me a lot since I need to watch videos that I have liked over and over again another thing that I want to address is perverts there are A LOT of middle age men on the app from the other side of the world looking at very young girls tik toks which i find very disturbing not only they are viewing it and liking it but they are commenting this they should not ever say to a minor and they join lives and say very sexual things. Also, the “your tapping too fast take a break annoys me” I know it’s so people don’t spend too long on the app but IT IS SOOOOO ANNOYING instagram doesn’t tell you how many posts you should like.
  • more to tik tok

    By Kbonecutter
    i LOVE tik tok so much. i think i speak for most of the population when i say that basically all i do during quarantine is make and watch tik tok. however, there are a few suggestions that i have. my first would be that there should be a dislike button on videos. a lot of the time if there is a controversial video people have to like it to save it which gives that creator more clout. if you put a dislike button, it shows the creator how many people he/she truly upset. i understand why that could be a bad thing but maybe try it and take it away if it gets too bad? this next suggestion is one that i have thought of since i got the app. when i really like a video, want to recreate it, show it to my friends, watch later, etc. i put the video into my favorites. however, i now have so many videos in my favorites that i can’t even find the video i need at the time. for this issue, i wish so deeply that the favorites section had different folders that you could name. this way, when you go to put the video in your favorites it asks which folder, you could name a folder, watch later, dances, show to people, etc. tik tok is a great app but please please please take my last idea into consideration.
  • Great App but...

    By Qkfnandkak
    I think TikTok is a great app to be honest! It has help me grow in all kinds of different ways and is kind of addicting in a good way. However, I feel like there is more that TikTok could do to improve the app. For example, you should be able to see who duets a video. I feel like it would be easier if we want to see other people’s reactions and want to share that as well. I also feel like we should be able to have a story that is up for 24 hours so we don’t have to make videos about something we want to share that is really not that important. In addition to that, we should be able to repost videos on our story as well. I saw a really REALLY good danganronpa edit and it was SUPER underrated but I couldn’t share it with anyone because when I duetted it, it only got 2 views in a day. Also, I think we should be able to go live (like a FaceTime on live) with other people. It would be super fun! We used to have a feature where we could pin comments, but we can’t do that anymore? Which is kind of disappointing, but if you can do that again, it would be great! We should also be able to pin videos incase someone is new to an account and people want to introduce themselves. Anyway, I think that’s about all I wanted to share to help TikTok grow as a community and app.
  • Good until it bans you for no reason

    By isablla brophy
    It is a pretty good app and I loved it. It kept me intertwined until my friend and I took a video together and she was wearing a pretty big sports bra. It cover everything except her stomach. My video got banned even though charli and Addison and other famous girl tik tokers were short shorts and bikinis. I thought okay well I guess that’s okay to get banned. So I kept posting and everything was fine. At that point only one of my videos got banned. I hadn’t posted in a couple days so I decided to post a video of the song “Thank you next”, by Ariana grande, org pictured of horses at the barn I ride at. Just the horses themselves and at the end I put a picture of me and another horse. It was a selfie and you could see a lot of the horses face but a little bit of mine. It got banned and said I was permanently banned from my account. For no reason it should be banned. I was wearing normal clothes and you could only see my face. I have no clue why it got banned and I’m really upset because that was a really good account and every school friend I had and or friend followed me and I got a decent amount of likes on each video. I’m am really mad at TikTok right now. Like did the horse not wear enough clothes. Seriously...
