I told people 3 years ago when TikTok came out that it was going to be the new Vine.

Nobody over the age of 14 is finna be on tiktok.
Word. Too many businesses use it, puls the integration with Facebook and its messaging capabilities make it incredibly useful

TikTok is mad corny/stupid.

Its literally just a bunch of people lip syncing and trying to act out bits trying to be funny.

99.999999999999% of the time, they aren't.
It couldn't be cornier than your avitar.

All social media has taken a nose dive over the years. The OG’s like Tagged, BlackPlanet and MySpace were when social media was “fun”. Now this sh*t is a competition to be accepted and liked. Who can post the most inspirational sh*t known to man, which build a broad gets the most likes while showing her a*s in a bikini and holding her t*ts in a bedroom mirror, who can look the corniest by sitting on the hood of a car looking down with a rap quote. All this sh*t is toxic and takes little to no originality. Snapchat is the worst of all of them. Twitter used to be cool to me until these broads got on there saying sh*t for the fu*k of it. Granted it’s all entertainment and I get that but at the end of the day this sh*t means none of us any good.

here's a thought... try not using any social media... n*ggaz acting like this sh*t is a necessity like water...
Social media is a good business and marketing tool if used effectively. For that reason, I wouldn't throw it away.

Instagram aint goin nowhere.
Same thing they said about yahoo messenger, myspace, and blackplanet. I give instagram and facebook 4 years before its done. Hell I even got couple ideas for better social media apps. I just don't have programming skills to make it yet.

Instagram is hassle for business. If you talk too many people you DMs get restricted. You comment too much you get restricted. You follow too many people in a day in order to build your following you get restricted. That is what makes it obsolete. It only caters too thots and celebrities. Its just too hard to build your brand on it.

Exactly that is what makes it obsolete. It wants everybody to stay at low followers except celebrities. I just got blocked for asking people to follow me back. It is like impossible to get your followers up without asking them to follow you back. It take internally too long to build your brand on it. It took me a whole month just to get up 400 followers. I want atleast 10k or 20k in my city. Not random people that clicked on my hashtag. I am trying to be promoter of my artists I DJ.

Maybe in time, but not yet. Everything gets replaced eventually. Removing likes was honestly a bad move for them businesswise but had a good moral reason. Half the women on Instagram are just attention seeking thots that live off validation. They will eventually migrate to another platform thst gains more traction and for everyone of them thst goes there will be a bunch of thirsty a*s guys holding their meat following closely behind

I see alot of dope artists cant get any following for sh*t because IG just wont let anybody grow organically.

Even when u do pay for ads you still dont get a good ROI on it. followers in general are hard to come by

Nope. I donít fu*k with TikTok. Itís a dumbass app for children and itís a Chinese app as well. Donít put that bullsh*t on your phone especially if you got an android, that sh*t has the malware you canít erase not even with a factory reset or rom wipe. Itís there forever. The ads and whatever it does simply reinstalls itself over and over like a virus.

I thought they were just removing likes but really they are stifling self promotion to force people to buy ads. Some days i will reach out to 4-500 people on instagram. Got a 3 day ban from commenting. No ban from Dm'ing yet, just 1-2hr blocks from Sending them.

Facebook marketplace restrictive af now. Facebook groups more sensitive than ever.

This is not good but the only thing to do is adapt. Im going to build my own facebook groups related to my industry and promote websites inbetween posts.

IG lied though, this shyt isnt targeting likes, its targeting comment and Dm's to stifle promotion

Playing around with tik tok

Actually seeing ppl with less than 10 followers got like 100-1000 likes

On my IG seems like way than less of my followers see my sh*t

It’s interesting I realize my field has quite a few vids/posts

But my local area hasn’t been tapped in like that yet

Some weirdness on their for you aka explore page tho

Think it’s trans awareness week or something

Yeah same here. Posts only getting 10% of the likes i was getting months ago. I thought i had did something to turn people off and slowed down. Now i wish i hadnt

Im in the health industry & have made bread just hitting up people under the #planetfitness.

Im stillDm'ing people right now, plotting my adjustment. I changed my pitch already to be more personal and am still getting a good ratio of followers/responses per DM.

Some people call it spamming, i call it passing out digital flyers. Time to work smarter instead of harder.

Guess i have to start paying for ads immediately as well. Hopefully this is a blessing in disguise.

How is Tic Toc as far as directly engaging consumers??
