Current Trends

Most of these trends start on TikTok and spread to other social platforms.
Note: this list will be updated every Monday.

Things to keep in mind about TikTok

  • People can't repost a tiktok. It has to appear on the "For You Page," be direct messaged, or found through searching the audio for a non-follower to see the video
  • The closest thing to a repost on tiktok is duetting a video, in which the screen is split and the original video is on one side while a new video is recorded on the other
  • The audio is arguably the most important part of the tiktok. A majority of trends use the same audio, which also helps to have your video seen. You can click on an audio to see all of the videos that use that same audio.
