Tik Tok – Tips to a Successful Video Wed, 15 Jan 2020 15:04:12 +0000 Do you Tik Tok?  Tik Tok is an app that’s been available since 2017 in the US.  Tik Tok is an app that lets you take short videos of you lip-syncing, dancing, or doing other funny things.  We had a chance to talk with Senior Jenna Benoit about her Tik Tok.  Jenna makes one or two videos a day. She said she has been making and recording videos for a few months now. Her videos are mostly about dancing and doing other funny stuff.  She says she does not take it completely seriously but does it for fun.  Recently she has had some internet success with one of her videos getting over 68,000 views.  This may not be as many as a celebrity but it is a lot for the average person.

Her advice for anyone that wants to make Tik Tocs is you need to come up with your own creative ideas, be funny, and use a lot of hashtags.  Just have fun with it.
