TikTok is an app that allows people to share their videos, and to post their recordings (that can be 15 seconds to 1-minute long). The new application’s logo is a mix of the Musical.ly and Duyin logos. Basically, this app works just like Musical.ly did, users create recordings, and add mainstream melodies to their videos. The most famous and well-known way of creating videos in the application was to make recordings where the people are lip-syncing and dancing. In less than a year, the TikTok application had more than 100 million users. TikTok collects about 500 million users a month now, and everyone expects that this platform is going to grow more.

The more, the merrier: Do not stop yourself, use as many hashtags as you possibly can, every one of them will help you. Unfortunately, TikTok limits the characters on captions, so you are able to just use 100 characters while writing a caption, so, you must be really careful when you are choosing your words and hashtags.
- Follow patterns and ensure that the hashtags are fresh: #merrychristmas may be used way too much in December, yet, it will not be used that much in February or March, as well as the hashtag #happyeaster do not use it in September for example. Different hashtags are popular in different parts of the year, so make sure that you follow the latest hashtag trends and to keep up with all the famous content.
