Happy Tik-Toktober

in Features by

Slowly but surely, the new social media platform, Tik-Tok, has taken over the world. The app started out as Musical.ly but slowly transitioned into a “Vine-like” app, now known as Tik-Tok. Tik-Tok has become a very popular source of entertainment, not only for children, but also for adults. A survey was sent out to each high school grade to find out everyone’s true opinion on Tik-Tok and the impact it has made. Additionally, Communications Creative Director Brooke Dant, freshman Aubrey Alecxih and junior Jack Jones were asked what they personally think about the app.

The seven-question Tik-Tok survey was sent out to the student body. The survey included a question asking about daily Tik-Tok usage. The most common response was 15-30 minutes daily. Alecxih said she normally spends two hours daily. When asked if you prefer making Tik-Toks, watching Tik-Toks or both, watching Tik-Toks received the highest votes. Although Alecxih enjoys making Tik-Toks, she prefers and spends more time watching them. Knowing that Tik-Tok has become a new trend, another question asked the students if they agreed that the app has taken over other social media platforms; a majority of the students said “yes.”
