TikTok is a video-sharing social media app available on most phones and devices, which lets users create, share, and view user created videos much in a similar manner to Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. It’s main draw, however, is that users can record and upload bite-sized looping videos of themselves lip-syncing and dancing to popular music or soundbites, often for comedic effect, which can then be further enhanced with filters, emojis and stickers. TikTok has been designed with the young user in mind and has a very addictive appeal. However, it does have a downside, which is that children are open to inappropriate language, violence and sexually explicit material. In addition to this, online predators use the app and there is also the threat of hidden expenses linked to app too. The age rating for TikTok is 12+.
