Never had it. Never had Instagram, Tumblr, Snapchat, etc. I have a super old facebook that I almost never use. I think I had MySpace like 20 years ago.10

I don’t use it all or watch it10
If it wasn't for LibsofTikTok and other various YouTubers, using other people's TikTok's to exhibit how retarded people can be on there... I'd have no idea it even exists.
So as a fellow outsider of TikTok, all I know about it is people get on there and rant about things they should probably keep to themselves. That is of no use to me. For instance, I spent my entire day researching quadricep exercises... my searches have led to many youtube videos, and many articles... Jack shit of my searches has led to anything TicTok related, and that leads me to believe it's useless for what I use the internet for.
I think it's mainly for dumb dance videos, people to complain about their relationships or spew their retarded beliefs. I used to see memes from there on youtube meme videos I watch, but I think that's been drying up for more of the destructive behaviors like faulty relationships and political beliefs, but that's just my thoughts on what might be over there for the most part. Not useful to me :-/0
While I've seen TikTok videos on YouTube or the news, you couldn't pay me to install the TikTok app or visit that website. TikTok is the most invasive Chinese spyware you can imagine, and if an American company made an app that did what the TikTok app does (it tracks and steals EVERYTHING - it key-logs your keyboard app, it steals anything in your Clipboard [when you copy and paste], downloads your email, contacts , and your photos, and tracks your usage of other apps and websites), it would get sued out of existence, but because ByteDance is partially owned by the CCP, nothing is going to be done.
This is why the CEO of the American branch of the company refused to give any real answers about the CCP having access to western data - and why his testimony was a disaster for ByteDance and has led to restrictions (which have SEVERE penalties if violated), and is likely to face even more restrictions if not an outright ban.10
Some of the clips are borderline pimping themselves to get traffic to an OF page. Most are just kids. It's terrifying how many girls turn 18 and "celebrate" by selling themselves.
Most, thankfully, are more for fun. There's a few good users for different interests. I'm interested in buying a smallholding and farming using traditional methods - horses instead of tractors, crop rotation, storage without freezing (unstable electric supply in South Africa) - and there's a few users who post videos on that kind of thing. One guy has posted a few clips on making mead that I'm going to try.
I only started playing around in October and it's taken this long for the algorithm to start sending me mostly stuff I'm actually interested in.0
Hahaha no, me and my family also don't use it but sometimes I be sitting there and asking myself the same thing
I don't like tiktok, I hear so many negative things about it and the fun videos from tiktok end up on Instagram anyways20
No. India banned TikTok in June 2020 citing national security concerns after a military clash with China, opening the door for Instagram to dominate and some TikTok duplicates to suddenly emerge as major players in the vacated market20
Not even that, I hate YT Shorts as well. The algorithm by Google is not good. I got same videos back to back. I stopped watching them afterwards.
Instagram is cool, but really addictive. Kind of a problem there.15
I don’t like TikTok that much. I am registered on around a dozen or three dozen zoo and animal channels on there but I find video quality is better on other sites like Reddit or Pinterest.10
i don't use tiktok either, mainly bc its banned where i live (I don't know why, not bothered to research about it) but if it wasn't banned i still wouldn't use it10
i dont anymore but only cause it takes up 80% of my phones storage, lags all the time and is slow af and youtube already has shorts which is basically the same as tiktok except walmart version but still its practically the same. plus anyways loads of tiktokers have their tiktoks in shorts format too so your not missing out on much either0
I don’t own tik tok either. Similarly I don’t have Twitter and never had. I used to have Facebook between 07-13.10
I don’t use it but friends send me videos that I watch on occasion. I don’t want it. No time for it.10
Nope. I don't either. I don't even use usual ones ( FB, IG, etc.).28
:)... do you know how big this planet is tho?
This entire planet?10
I don’t use TikTok at all. I don’t think it’s a trustworthy app to use and share content on.10
Nope, and I haven't missed anything of value.10
I also don't use TikTok or many of the other forms of social media 🙂10
No your not.
Not even sure how you could come to that conclusion 🤔10
I just started using it. Some of the people who report news are extremely good and do a lot of research. I know this because I verify it myself too. I've also been exposed to a LOT of things that I had no idea were happening, and it's been very eye opening. I ignore the silly girls selling shit.0
I use TikTok, sometimes i put comments but i never post any video10
