Social media has always been a way for the digital-savvy users to keep themselves entertained, and recently, the influx of new apps have added onto this! But out of all of these innovations, truly none has captured the youth as much as TikTok!
But, let’s be real. Is it worth it or is it just a waste of all of our time and energy?
Well, the recent drop of ratings from 4.5 to a 1.3 may be proof. But, we wonder what else is causing it to fall from grace?
You’re Basically Lip Syncing
So, we all get to pick our favourite dialogues/songs and lip-sync them and hope for thousands of views. For a long time, Vine did that too! Did it work? Nope.
There Too Much Unnecessary Overacting
Being funny or emotional is one thing, but to showcase a barrage of acting skills that are just awful, makes no sense to us!
It Takes Over All Your Time
With the app taking at least 10-12 takes to lip-sync even one dialogue properly, it just wastes more time than anything else. Plus, are you even sure the video came out nice?
A Danger To Society& Ethics
Not everyone understands how to use an app carefully, and many are creating dangerous situations for them and others by doing crazy out-of-the-box things. There’s a fine line between entertainment and attention-mongering. Plus, let’s not even forget how awfully it ridicules anyone who doesn’t fit the ‘norm.’
You Think You’re A Celebrity
There’s nothing wrong in making yourself feel like a million bucks, but if you end up thinking that doing OTT things will make you stand at the same level as people who have worked hard in the industry, it’s a wrong thought to have!
