Tik Tok is sweeping on the internet and the main competitor of Instagram. More and more content creators and influencers (also already established) are using TikTok.

Surely you have already heard of it around, but what do you actually know about this new platform? If you are reading this article, it is because you definitely want to know more. We will do everything to give you all the information you need that how it works and how to use the app.

What is it?

Tik Tok is an App that allows you to record videos of short duration (maximum 60 seconds), also integrating music or other types of tunes to videos. And so far it seems more or less normal, but obviously, it is not so. The functions that have made this application famous are those that concern video editing. With a few simple clicks, you can add editing effects, stickers, and any other kind of filter or effect to your videos.

It is also possible to create videos with photo collages (maximum 12), present in your library by adding effects and music.

How to register for Tik Tok

To register for Tik Tok, the procedure is identical to the other social networks:

• Open your Store;
• Search for Tik Tok;
• Download and Install the App;
• Decide whether to log in with Facebook or with another method;
And all is done!

Even if you log in with Facebook, you can change all the parameters that affect your profile. For example, even if you log in with Facebook, you will not be forced to keep the same username or profile picture, same for biography and other information.

How to make a video on Tik Tok

The platform, as mentioned, is very simple to use!
To create a video on Tik Tok, you must:

• Open The App;
• Click on + (in the middle of the app)
• Decide on the duration (15/60 s., Or Video Editing);
• Decide the speed (you can speed up or slow down the shooting);
• Choose a Sound (among millions of songs and more);
• Start recording.

After recording the various clips of the video, you can also close the app after recording a clip and start again later without losing your job. You can decide whether or not to apply cuts to the video, editing effects, filters, and effects of each guy. Once ready for publication, all you have to do is add the # (which works in a similar way to other platforms), a short copy, and publish.

Why is it so successful?

Let's face it; a good percentage of the people who are now reading think that this is yet another App for teens. Or that it is yet another way to ridicule yourself on the Internet. But it is more than lip-syncing videos.

This platform is having success for the following reasons:

• Usability: imagine an app designed to be understood by a ten-year-old. The UX is perfect; after 5 minutes, you already know every function. In addition, you have the possibility to close the app (not to pause it) and to be able to reopen it, recovering the work that is automatically saved.

• Editing Videos: Editing a video has never been easier. If you have a good camera and a lot of creativity, the results can be astonishing. While not understanding anything about video editing, you can create original content. Obviously, the videos can be recorded directly from the app and imported from the Smartphone library (as well as photos).

• Music Library: the music library is very well organized (with different trend categories). Inside there are millions of songs and funny clips to be dubbed.

• Organic Results: forget Facebook and Instagram, here, even without sponsorships or buy TikTok followers; the organic results are still sensational.
