    although TikTok is fun/entertaining, the app can be very addicting kinda like a drug. For example when you wake up in the morning and check your notifications, you slowly start scrolling through Instagram then TikTok, and sooner or later you have been scrolling for 1 hour+. I used to spend a good 2 to 3 hours on tik tok, which is pretty bad i started to realize my bags getting bigger from not getting enough sleep.

    I think everybody used TikTok way back when it was called musicaly or something. It’s definitely a fun app to use but after a while it gets kind of repetitive so I find it easy to realize when I’m spending a prolonged mount of time on it. I like how this article isn’t just going with the popular opinion.

    Even though I’m on social media everyday I just don’t like TikTok and I know that people are addicted to the app its just that I cant sit there scrolling and watching videos for hours.

    Everybody really likes tiktok. i remember in like 2019 when I told my friends I found it and they didn’t think it was gonna be fun or anything and now that it’s popular that’s all their on. Everybody is on tiktok and other social media’s like instgram. You can literally find the WHOLE school on one persons tiktok because of how many people them. Social media is really fun and agree with all out of the people quoted in here.

    I agree that scrolling on TikTok can be really addicting. I sometimes procrastinate because I choose to spend my time on TikTok. It was really interesting to read about the different types of social media platforms that different people use.

    I used to use TikTok a bunch during middle school, but over the summer and into my freshmen year, I’ve stopped using it that much. Instead I’ve started using Twitter (which is now called X) a lot more recently. This kind of cycle is common for me because during 6th grade I used Instagram, but then I moved to TikTok. I honestly don’t know why I do this. Anyway, Twitter isn’t my favorite, I would say Youtube is because I like watching video essays. Not a big fan of Youtube Shorts but I watch them anyway because they are addicting to watch.

    i once had 8 hours of TikTok dude. TikTok is fun but I keep avoiding important tasks for the sake of scrolling more.

    I found this article really relatable because I spend way too much time on tiktok too. And I agree as well on how we spend too much time on social media. I think it’d be a good idea to limit my time on there.

    It’s interesting to see the honest youth opinion on the mixed bag that is social media. Jennifer was thorough enough to mention the uses of social media beyond just insipid selfies and ads for products that don’t work. You did a good job with this one, Jennifer.
