Dance your way to social media stardom

A new social app is available for the next generation of content creators. 

Tik Tok, introduced in 2017, lets users have the power to quickly create and share their own unique, 15-second videos, from comedy to dance, or free-style to performance. The app encourages users to let their imaginations run wild and express themselves through their smartphones.

Tik Tok features an array of built-in special effects and stickers all powered by AI Technology, bringing videos to life through the use of body movement-recognition software.

Since its introduction, Tik Tok has become an instant phenomenon in several markets across Asia. This wave has led to the development of a young, fresh, and vibrant community of content creators that spans across a number of genres through original performances. Tik Tok’s community has attracted a number of celebrities and influencers who have turned to the platform to increase their fan-base.
