Tech watch: TikTok

As a seventh-grader, TikTok is my favorite social media app because it is super fun and interactive.

As a seventh-grader, TikTok is my favorite social media app because it is super fun and interactive. I started using it when I was younger to make dance videos to my favorite songs. I discovered that all the music artists I liked were on the app, and, if you followed them, they would follow you back. It was an exciting feeling when they liked my comments.

I love to watch different types of videos on TikTok. Especially since COVID, the app helps me to feel connected to my friends because you can make videos together or tag each other.

I think adults in churches who work with youth can use TikTok to relate to our generation and see what we like. There was one video where the kids were teaching their Sunday school teacher a new dance. Sometimes the youth leaders will change the lyrics to popular songs. There are things on TikTok for old people too. It’s educational stuff: it can help you learn hard math or pass geography class. I think everyone should give TikTok a try at least for one day.
