If you don't know what TikTok is, I have one question for you. Are you okay? All jokes aside, I absolutely LOVE to be on TikTok and post videos. I would normally plug in a shameless TikTok promotion, but I will hold back considering this post is all about being addicted to the app. Which I am most definitely addicted to TikTok. If you or someone you know is not addicted to the app, then you may not understand these next points. But I assure you, if you do any of these, you are most definitely, one hundred percent addicted to the glorious app.
You quote different sounds from TikTok.
There are just too many popular sounds from TikTok that fit perfectly into daily life. I can not tell you how many times someone will say something to me, and I reply with a sound from TikTok. If you can hold a whole conversation with someone else using only TikTok sounds, you're addicted, sorry I don't make the rules.
You can watch TikTok without sound and still follow what's happening on most of the videos.
I cannot tell you how many times I have wanted to be on TikTok in class but didn't have my headphones on me. But… since I watch a lot (way too much honestly) TikTok, I can watch it on mute and follow pretty much every video that pops up on my FYP.
Your body randomly does the Renegade dance.
If you ever do any dance from TikTok randomly, then you are probably addicted. But all of us that are addicted know that the Renegade one hits different, especially since the OG dance has had light shined on it recently.
You spend more time on TikTok than all of your other social media apps combined.
I used to be one that surfed through Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat for hours, switching between them all. Now, I will go onto those apps for maybe five minutes each, and then go on TikTok for hours upon hours upon hours.
When your friend sends you a funny TikTok video, but you already saw it three weeks ago.
Every time one of my friends sends me a TikTok video, about 95% of the time, I have already seen it. Usually, I see it weeks before they even send it to me.
There are many more signs that means one is addicted to TikTok, but I don't want to give away all of our secrets! If you or a friend does at least one of these, leave them to their TikTok addiction and give them much love.
