It seemed that the world of social networks had stabilized with the most used for years such as Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest … but social media never ceases to amaze us and suddenly a network that began as only for teenagers, to Today it is firmly on the scene: TikTok is beginning to consolidate among the social networks that are in fashion.
But what is TikTok?
Tik Tok is the name of the old social network Mussical.ly. In April 2018 I already told you in this same blog that Mussical.ly was sweeping the adolescents of our country, but shortly after, on August 2, 2018 Mussical.ly was renamed Tik Tok.

Tik Tok Tutorial
What is TikTok?
TikTok is a network for sharing video clips with music (it has a large music gallery) and karaoke, it contains filters that change the voice, aesthetics, and even jumps to change clothes and transform from one scene to another.
In recent months, accounts of adults who use this network professionally have grown notably: doctors, nurses, psychologists, nutritionists, marketers, lawyers, journalists … They use some of its functions such as timed texts but they do not sing or dance, they share content from quality with your audience.
You can make videos by merging photos.
The accounts and each of the videos can be public or private.
It allows you to include videos of 15 to 60 seconds, something that gives greater possibilities than Instagram stories.
The videos do not disappear after 24 hours but will be part UK Mobile Database of the feed of your account.
Like any self-respecting network, in TikTok hashtags are used so that the content reaches the largest number of users when they search by topic.
The characters of the video description are limited, therefore you have to make short descriptions and include as many hashtags as possible.
You can share videos from your computer. In this link I show you how
It is curious that this network provokes love or hate in users of social networks, that is, there are those who love it and there are those who cannot stand it, so you have to try it and reach your own conclusion. In any case, I recommend parents with teenage children to get to know her and follow her closely.
How does Tik Tok work ?
The first thing you have to do is download the App from your mobile store (it’s free).
Then you can log in with your Facebook, Google, Twitter or Instagram account and also with Apple or register with a mobile phone or email. Be careful if you have several Facebook accounts and you log in with one of them, because when you want to log in with a different one, you will not be able to and you will lose access to your profile.
Once you have logged in, with the account you have selected, you will see that by default it has taken the photo or avatar that you have on the network with which you have entered (although you can always change it by clicking on the image) and a name will also appear that you can change and adjust as much as possible to your name.
On the screen you will find at the top your image or avatar, your nik or username and the video count that you are sharing.
Below are the users you follow, the followers and the total number of likes for your videos.
You will also find an Edit Profile button, where you can change the image or choose a video from your gallery, your data, your bio and you can link your Instagram and Youtube accounts that will be displayed in your account Brother Cell Phone List profile with a link to each of they. You will also find a button where you will find all the videos that you save from other users.
After your bio that will also appear in the profile of your account, you will find two icons, the first is to view the videos in a grid and the second will show you the videos in which you have clicked like.
Once your profile is complete, it’s time to start messing around the app to find the content that you like. I already warn you that at first you will be surprised to see hundreds of teenagers singing, dancing and some videos a little out of place, but I imagine that once the fever is over and with the arrival of older users who are joining more and more quickly , the network is taking a new path. I recommend that you search for content by hashtags of your interest.
We can find beautiful videos for example of travel, useful tricks, animals, cooking recipes, medical advice, legal recommendations, and even a lot of marketing and social media content (it shows that we have already arrived 😉
At the bottom of your home screen you will find several icons:
