Few things can make you feel more ancient than when the younger generation talks about a new social media app you've never heard of. Case in point: TikTok. What the heck is this new app and why are all the young whippersnappers all gung-ho over it?
In a nutshell, TikTok is a video-sharing app similar to Vine (RIP), Snapchat or Instagram stories. The caveat is these are short videos -- only 15 seconds long. Now, you can upload videos longer than this by stringing multiple clips together, so the max becomes 60 seconds. But in TikTok world, 15 seconds is the sweet spot.
From there, navigating the app is fairly simple. You simply swipe through these short clips of hilarity and enjoy being plummeted down the dark and never-ending hole of content. Contrary to popular belief, this app isn't just for the 14-year-olds creating dance videos in their parents' basements. Anyone can use it, and quite honestly, I usually see just as many adults on the app as I do youngsters.
So, if you feel like downloading another app to keep you up way past your bedtime, go for it. And when you do, we highly recommend checking out the celebs below.
