If you told me one year ago, I would be obsessed with TikTok, I would have said – what’s TikTok? What started out as a lip-syncing app popular with teens, quickly turned into one of the most downloaded apps in 2020 thanks to COVID.
TikTok has created so many niche communities and has given a voice to so many diverse and unique creators – I can guarantee you will find your side of TikTok very quickly. If you’re wondering what “side” means on TikTok, it’s referring to the algorithm that shares the best curated content on your “For You” page – similar to a home page. The algorithm considers what videos you like, share and watch. Based on all those factors the app will share content they think you will like- trust me once you go down the feta pasta side of TikTok, there is no end!
But let’s talk Mom TikTok. Yes, I’m looking at you, you side part skinny jean wearing older millennial. Even though Gen Z might have the cool dance moves, us older millennials have the life hacks! Moms are sharing their best parenting advice, recipes, motherhood comedy and must have amazon products. I can say with 100% confidence that my amazon purchases have quadrupled based on the recommendations of TikTok.
