If you have been on any form of social media lately, you have probably seen a reference to the world’s latest social media app.
TikTok is an social networking app that allows users to film themselves doing short videos for up to 60 seconds. The app began to hit major popularity during mid-March when the whole world was stuck at home. TikTok has taken the world by storm, and almost everyone ranging from Superbowl Athletes to famous YouTubers can be seen making them.
Instagram announced Friday that it’s preparing to launch its own video-sharing feature, Reels, in the United States and 50 other countries, just one week after it began testing the platform in India. Reels will let people record and edit 15-second videos set to music and audio, and upload them to their stories and Instagram’s Explore feature. An official launch date has not yet been announced.
