Yeah, Vine was great, but TikTok is the new and improved version.
The videos can be up to a minute long
On Vine, they could only be a few seconds long. Now, you have a whole minute to embarrass yourself.
There are more features
When editing a TikTok video, you don't even need editing software. There are filters, music to add, and even a green screen feature. When you uploaded a video to Vine you either had to do a full face of makeup or hope the quality of the video was so bad you couldn't tell how ratchet you looked.
The algorithm is on point
I'm not sure if Vine had an algorithm, but if they did it sucked. My 'For You' page is just how I like it, full of depressed millennia's and hot baseball players.
It's the ultimate mash-up app
If two of the greatest apps ever created (Vine and Musical.ly) had a love child, It would be TikTok. It has the lip-sync talent of Musical.ly and the crude humor of Vine all rolled into one.
It's so educational
There is content for everyone
There are multiple sides to TikTok. From the 'Mom's of TikTok' making lunches SO cute I wish I was 8 again, to the 'Story Time's' that make me realize that my life is so boring, this app will keep you entertained for hours.
The relatable content
Sometimes, the videos that people post are CREEPY accurate. I swear that we either all live the same life or this is a cruel joke
TikTok is like a melting pot of drama. You have Youtube stars, actors/actresses, musicians, and now TikTokers all on the same app. With so many different types of influencers of all different ages and content all on one app, there is bound to be drama, and it is JUICY!
How easy it is to get clout
If you target the right audience, your TikTok can easily get thousands of views. I posted some quality content on Vine, but it was harder to get a like on Vine than twitter. I posted a TikTok of my mom crying over Joe Burrow and suddenly it has 20,000 views!
The people posting on TikTok are the same 13-14 year old's who were obsessed with Vine. Now that we are all in our early 20's we are the ones posting the content that will be quoted by the next generation.
