I've noticed people I know actively avoid talking about their tiktok media around me 😅 they go for "I saw somewhere" 😂

fuck tiktok, amiright?

Young sexy girl = Tik Toc (with filter) Older, less sexy guys = Lemmy (without profile picture)

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 month ago

That is baseless and untrue!

I'll have you know I HAVE a profile picture.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 1 month ago

Haha. Sorry man. I think the point is my client "Voyager". I don't see your profile pics.

As a teen—I don't use tik Tok, nor does anyone I know. It's easy to believe everyone uses something, when people are saying that everyone uses something. Compare active users of tiktok in the US to the entire US population, for example. About 1/3 of the population. Sure, that's a lot, but it's not even a majority. The way people talk about it, you'd think it was an overwhelming majority.

TikTok has more users than Twitter, Reddit, Discord, and Twitch combined.

And the user base is almost certainly more addicted to TikTok than any other social media app other than some of the extreme right wing conservatives on Elon's Xitter.

It's insane how many videos and ads a person will swipe through in even a short time on TikTok

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 month ago

Lemmy will ~not~ change that!

[-] [email protected] 6 points 1 month ago

That's insane actually

Learning things from news sources on [social media]: 😃

Learning things from news sources on TikTok: 😡

Edit: Point being, as long as you use critical thinking and, at least, more than one trustable source, any platform can provide information.

I get some of my news from Judith Miller columns in the NYT and the Jeff Bezos owned Washington Post.

Yes, I'll occasionally read an article from the Murdoch-owned WSJ or pull up a video from acclaimed FOX News Journalist Juan Williams.

But if I really want the most fair and accurate reporting available, I turn to the nationally syndicated Epoch Times for all my news of the day.

The problem with both is the opaque centrally controlled algorithm imo

TIL Donald Trump watches a lot of tik tok

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

That wouldn't surprise me at all given the fact that they had to tailor his security briefings with a mention of himself every 30 seconds to keep his attention. He's exactly the TikTok demographic, and "loves" Kim, and was certainly more than friendly with Xi.

I also wouldn't be surprised if Xi Jinpooh himself was the one that told Trump about TikTok. Especially since it was released in September of 2016.

Also Yahoo News. What a fucking shithole

This used to be Reddit for me, now it's Lemmy and the fediverse

[-] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago

try reading and watching documentaries and talking to humans irl

[-] [email protected] 13 points 1 month ago

I still have to go to reddit pages for a lot of random things like technical issues or niche game info because Lemmy isn't big enough yet.

It works for news, but not much else.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 1 month ago

Yep. Unfortunately Reddit is still unmatched in small community engagement, but that will change with time, I think.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

Even larger groups here suffer from issues. With news there’s not enough people with diverse interests so a lot of decently big news stories slip through the cracks.

[-] [email protected] 13 points 1 month ago

Remember kids, if you can't cite your sources in APA format, you got it from TikTok and nobody believes you.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 1 month ago

Unfortunately that last part isn't true.

[-] [email protected] 55 points 1 month ago

Is it me or is the picture rotated clockwise ever so slightly?

[-] [email protected] 53 points 1 month ago

Straightened it 4 u babe x

[-] [email protected] 28 points 1 month ago

Need to defeat repost protection? Horizontal flip won’t work because of pesky people not wanting to read mirrored text? Slap a lil 2.5° rotation on that baby! See also: random markup line added that looks like hair/dust.

Yeah, no, it definitely is. I've professionally zoomed in on my phone and then dragged the image to the screen edge. The bottom end of her user-tag is particularly obvious.
