This may get heated so it’s posted in PWI.
I know social media is designed to keep one addicted and using the apps. I definitely use my fair share of YouTube (even have the ad free subscription) and use Facebook a lot since all my friends are scattered everywhere.
TikTok is where is draw the line. I don’t use the app but my wife does all the time without headphones around me.
I despise everything about that app. The short clips that are mostly pointless, the bouncing from random topic to random topic, that stupid voiceover lady’s voice, the fact that every single person now believes they have a “platform”.
YouTube videos take editing and work but anyone can throw up a dumbass TikTok and pass themselves off as whatever virtue signaling wannabe they pretend to be that day.
This app physically hurts me when I have to listen to it (literally causes headaches).
So I guess I am really just ranting here, but I really feel like TikTok is almost guaranteed to make us stupider. People already can’t think past surface level thanks to the internet and the way search engines function.
At least YouTube offers knowledge if one looks in the right places.
