Content vs "content"
This morning I quite happily unsubscribed from a YouTube channel and it was for very personal reasons. I can't say the content creator intended to piss me off as it is very much my personal makeup and where I am in my own journey right now that made me get angry.Kerri Philpott
My Favorite YouTuber
Remember dial-up internet? I sure do. If you grew up in a town or a city, you know that it was slow, but you do not know how slow it could truly be. I grew up on an acreage and when the internet first became a part of our household, we were unable to browse Google while simultaneously chatting on MSN messenger. A song would take a full day, sometimes three, just to download. Watching a full-length video was certainly out of the question as you would get maybe five seconds into it before the internet would buffer. Therefore, YouTube was foreign for me in the beginning.

Tik-Tok videos "for you" to love as much as I do
Crazy stunts, coordinated dance videos, and viral trends. Tik Tok is one of the most popular social media platforms right now, it's been downloaded over 2 billion times and it's only getting bigger. Although the app was originally made famous by teens it is now a favourite among all demographics. The more content you watch the more personalised video recommendations you will receive.
What the World Needs Now
So through this Pandemic Tik Tok has really become a thing - a phenomena. There's so much content on Tik Tok now it's difficult to know what's even trending and to sift through all the videos. There are like a billion Tik Tok users worldwide in 150 countries with 800 million monthly users.Jackie Nugara
Getting Dragged by Tik Tok
Tik Tok is a platform where you can find comedy sketches, commentary, and the latest cool kid dances. But there's something else the platform is now famous for- and that is getting dragged.Cassandra Lawrence
TIk Tok said “Hello to the world”. Tik Tok. What was the motivation behind sharing videos anyway? Is are Tik Tok generation speaking and talking through motion pictures, laughter and dance, this answer is yes. Tik Tok look at how you’ve changed the social realm with motion moments and unforgettable connects. The change is influenced by the unforgettable millenniums in our day and age we ride waves and influence futures. If I could rename the app, I'd call it “Tik Tok Generation Talk”. Tik Tok had a phenomenal upbringing combined with connection, power, and resources. Tik Tok pushed a positivity wave over the world motivating positivity and will. When did life get so real; the more I see our 2020 generation the more my mind grows with ideas, enthusiasm matched with spark. Tik Tok has changed the way we share excitement amongst our family and friends with unforgettable moments. I'm all for it! The way laughter transcends into beauty, that’s what makes the world spin, that’s what makes the world worth living for I'll never forget my testimony. Tik Tok and myself have a strange story, Moneybag Yo took a hold of my perception and honestly made me believe I could win a 100,000$ dollar prize which turned out to be a façade. Now, my anger most definitely was tested that day after having lost a job and being kicked out from a home. When there is a life changing opportunity on the line, importance increases for the “little guy” and technically, I'd qualify. My sharing today will begin with the video I choose for that challenge. Now go and see the video for yourself of me dancing for a grand prize to a novelty song named “motivation” by Kelly Rowland. Are you back yet? The power of music is the reason I was so confident in my submission to the competition and of course my own unique artistry is a bold fighter. My explanation to the way I designed my video is as follows: my white dress symbolizes peace, while my shoes symbolizes prosperity, and my stature symbolizes privacy. My inspirational phrase for my own life compared to Tik Tok is private peaceful and prosperous; it brakes barriers the difference between me and Tik Tok. Urgency is usually mellow and uncertain. Tik Tok took control of the media, tourists, broadband, and much more; all at one time. Millenniums changed the way we view “viral” that one “term” viral. Tik Tok revolution made the mundane Instagram and overrated snapchat a shame along with old news. The one thing that’s worse than copying is doing better than the competition that started before you, I wonder how their CEO feels. Competition is repetition without direction and perspiration, also my liberation is determined to explain my relation to Tik Tok. Now with my own experience, I've written this down on paper to initiate my thoughts, explain my actions and express my emotions. Tik Tok and Vocal have both transformed my life emotionally and spiritually, more expression is due from those that care and are kind hearted like myself. I am being strong enough to move forward without reciprocation or recognition from others. Tik Tok crushed competitions and challenged the media without trying, no other company has challenged the normal since apple battled cricket and at&t. I see war, others see the world reference. My devastation led me down a dark path with depression, suicidal thinking, and panic attacks and after the last few weeks at Lakeside Behavioral Health I learned to stand tall regardless of the reward. A STRONGER individual has come of this challenge and I encourage others like myself to pursue there passions. Thanks to my experience I get the opportunity to write about it today. My brain moves a mile a minute and I pray for him who does not see or hear for men all need prayer.WroteFayDaay
The Power of Tik Tok
Most of us, at least once, have thought what can I do to keep myself entertained? I never imagined the answer would be Tik Tok.Louise Sly
Put a finger up
Thumbs up for this innocent and charming boy who puts fingers down when asked if he can relate to a situation and he does. He only got 14,7 K views and I wonder. I wonder what the hell. The video is far from boring, even though he is not jumping through a ring of fire for my sole entertainment. And yet, I find it incredibly amusing.Elena Stoyanova Kalcheva

The Amanda Abbington Debate
Recently, an awful group on Twitter, hounded actress Amanda Abbington off of the social networking platform. I won’t name them, because I don’t want to give them the attention they so crave, so, I shall just refer to them simply as ‘EL’.Rebecca Smith
Pet Peeve: Wasteful YouTube Culture
I would be a hypocrite if I just randomly started bashing YouTube, as I love watching content and also make my own videos weekly. It's a great platform where people can express themselves, share experiences, educate, perform activism and much more. What I don't like about YouTube are the wasteful trends that keep popping up. It's frustrating to see that people produce content that is clearly bad for the environment, and even worse, the viewers seems to love it.Tone Breistrand
