TikTok Is The New Vine And You Need To Deal With It

Everyone has said how terrible Tik Tok is at least once in their lives. Even me, someone who once made fun of the little previews that you would see on snapchat as they all seemed as ridiculous as an air guitar. Who would want to sit and watch people lip-sync songs for hours a day. Not me, and to be honest I still don't. Then people started comparing it to Vine to try and explain it. As someone who had downloaded Vine when it first came out, I was a little insulted. How could a lip sync competition be anything like the beloved Vine that I still watch compilation videos of? But that's not what TikTok is anymore.

TikTok has started to evolve from its original name of 'Musical.ly.' It is now more of a Vine vibe and I refuse to believe differently. While it's not completely the same (for example: no 7-second time limit). It does allow users to create videos using their own background as well as other people's sounds from videos already made on the app, not just songs.

I started watching TikTok as a complete joke because my roommate's little sister had created an account and from there, I found the 'For You' page. Where the most popular TikToks at the time circle through. I quickly started to look through the app more and more for longer and longer amount of times.

Don't get me wrong, there were some that were still lip syncing which I would just slide by, but the majority were videos that were at least captions showing a different point of views or people telling quick, funny stories.

So, to any of you who may be missing Vine as much as I do, give TikTok a chance. While it does take a bit of getting used to and isn't exactly Vine, it is worth a shot. If you decide it's not for you, Vine compilations will always be waiting.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
