    It makes me cringe, compare a video of children calling an random old man a creep and my polls

    Unlike your polls, there are good tik toks out there(of course, they are extremely hard to find)

    I mean the vast majority. I don't know why teens use it. Gen Z can't seem to understand good content (especially in music)

    TikTok is a Cultural mirror, more so for the younger generation than older, but quite universal overall.

    There are a lot of Non-English Memes that come from TikTok, and that means more avenues of Creativity for non-Western Countries, which is why Asians enjoy the visibility they attain from the platform, not to mention a means to gain fame and money.

    Additionally, I've noticed from the WhatsApp Groups of professionals older than me, that most of their shared Memes are exported TikTok videos, especially from the Mainland; many of my professional peers are South East Asian Huaren so it is a way for them to connect with their Mainland Culture if they don't visit often.

    Looked it up yesterday and went to the site. It seems like an ultra-distilling of amateur entertainment. I found a lot of it quite funny. Some of it a bit horrifying. Don't think I need to see a morbidly obese chick dancing around in tights. :huh:

    But I kinda liked the idea of the app/site.

    I'm 24 and too old, apparently. Most of it wasn't that funny and a lot of it was cringe. That being said, I could see it being appealing in the same way that people like to mindlessly scroll through r/all on reddit and see goodness knows what for fun.

    It's just a way for people to express themselves from what I can gather. I don't use it but I'm not going to begrudge someone who finds it fun. It's important to have fun however you can find it. I can think that and still be concerned about the CCP influence though.

    I don't see anything wrong with tiktok. Anyone who degrades could always find where to degrade.

    Hello there! Welcome to GBAtemp!

    Also, "degrades"? I do not think that word means what you think it means.

    No, really. I know all those backdoor stuffs and all, but It just isn't funny at all to me. I do get some tik tok viral compilations in my youtube shorts feed- They make me turn off my youtube and get back to whatever I was doing. quite effective in that way I'd say.

    And no, I'm a teenager. even as a teen those videos are just cringe to me.

    It's a big old meh for me, it's a cesspool of 5 second videos, some good, some bad, mostly cringe. I usually only go on it if my friend (who uses it) sends me something on there. I swear I'm not a degenerate.

    1% is actually good content, 79% is content that is made in less than 2 minutes and is terrible. The rest are 13 year old simps

    No interest in TikTok at all, They must be spending a fortune on advertising though as Tiktok is all i seem to get adverts for when using the YouTube mobile app.

    Downloaded it one day, made like two, then never used and eventually uninstalled.
    Basically, I don't give a shit about it and it's kinda annoying when other people bring it up.
