TikTok has proved itself the giant of all music creation applications. Formerly known as musically, It has been offering its users the ability to watch musical clips, create short clips and even add special effects. Users can create and upload videos, remix others, or browse through content created by other users and by famous recording artists.
TikTok changed its name and enhanced the safety measures set in place for the younger users. Parents should be assured that TikTok is a social network for sharing user-generated music videos. In 2019, there’s a separate section of the app for users under 13. That experience only lets users view curated videos.
This means they also can’t comment, or post their own videos, and their data isn’t collected. Users can upload videos of themselves singing, lip-synching, dancing, or performing some kind of stunt. Ongoing challenges entice users to create content related to a particular theme, and users can integrate their own videos with other user’s with the Duet feature.
TikTok is one of the safest applications out there for the young users. Just like Instagram, TikTok has a digital well being element which alerts users who have been on the app for more than two hours. This is just to ensure that it is the original account owner logged on. One can also turn on ‘restricted mode’ to filter out inappropriate content on the app. This means that users younger than 18 years can watch curated content. When a child has a private account, the profile photo, username, and bio are still visible to all users on the platform.
You can try anything with your TikTok. Fun things you can even do with the application is to create challenges with your friends. Pick a theme and create all the different fun challenges from the theme. Examples of them were the ice bucket challenge and the facial transformation.
