    So I am one of those people who has never downloaded tiktok. I guess I don't see the appeal. I guess it's a good way to mindlessly waste time while watching random 5 seconds videos?

    What do you guys think? Am I an old geezer now? Do you guys like tiktok?

    I would rather play a video game.

    A waste of time, but a popular one.
    I couldn't care less about it. If I'm going to watch a video a minute or 2 would be a lot more enjoyable.

    Downloaded it a while back cause my friend said there was a lot of funny videos. Deleted 2 minutes later cause all I saw was dumb shit of people trying to be funny and dancing, just alot of bad dancing.

    meh. don't really like it. sometimes there are bangers but most of the times, if i had to put it in the simplest way possible, it is cringe.

    For me it is more of entertainment, well people does make funny video on the Chinese version of the app not the international version. With all the stuffs going on in the world, some funny videos to watch ain't bad.

    For the "App" -> :shit:

    For the Users -> I thought many Youtubers only have a "Dachschaden" (mental defect)
    then I saw Tiktok Users......and Youtubers who reviews Tiktok Users...

    The thing that is taking the last bits of intelligence out of today's society. And also, Chinese malware/spyware.

    I'm concerned that nothing has been done about it. Forget the potential spyware aspect, that's the least of it. Remember all the controversy over Russian disinformation on social media platforms during the 2016 election? They did that from the outside. Imagine what they could've done if they had owned the platforms and could control the algorithms. The result would be so subtle that it would be nearly impossible to detect. Comparing the two methods would be like comparing a sledgehammer to a scalpel. Now just think about what the Chinese can accomplish with access to an algorithm that serves content to over 90 million US citizens.

    I don't have the energy to have strong feels for, against, or anywhere near having an actual opinion on it.

    Decent app, although the users can be kinda annoying
