A young woman recently shared a TikTok video of herself confronting a street photographer in Washington. She publicly called him a creep for taking photos of her and went on ranting even after he deleted the images. “TikTok, do your thing,” she wrote in the caption. And TikTok did –her followers called out on her instead of the photographer.
YouTube’s TikTok rival, Shorts is now out of beta and rolling out across the US
YouTube’s “Shorts” is YouTube’s attempt to take on apps like TikTok. Quick videos designed to help keep your audience updated on what’s going on. Show some behind the scenes, quick tips, dumb viral challenges, whatever. It’s been in beta for a while, but now it’s finally hitting the mainstream as a regular feature in the app – at least in the USA.
There’s no word on when it’ll roll out globally, although the US rollout is expected to have completed by next week. You’ll be allowed to show off your 15-60 second videos to your audience and there’ll be a dedicated tab for viewers to watch them in the YouTube app. YouTube says they’ll be expanding the feature to add stupid AR filters like its competitors.
Tiktok silhouette challenge gone horribly wrong as The Internet finds a way to remove the red filter
About a week ago, Tiktok came up with a challenge to empower people and make them feel sexy. It’s called the Tiktok Silhouette Challenge, and the idea is to shoot a video of yourself to the sound of a Paul Anka “Put Your Head on My Shoulder” mashup with Doja Cat’s “Streets.”
The “trick” is that the video starts pretty trivial. But as the music transitions, you merge a second video. That video has a filter that changes your appearance into a silhouette. Hopefully, where you can feel more comfortable wearing sexy clothes, lingerie, or even pose nude.
Sadly, this has gone terribly wrong as “The Internet” found a way to remove the red filter, and thereby show things that Tiktokers never meant to expose.

Auschwitz Museum calls out “Holocaust trend” on TikTok as hurtful and disrespectful
I wish this was some kind of a bizarre joke, but it’s real: there is something called “Holocaust trend” on TikTok. Video creators use makeup to create bruises and injuries and they pretend to be Holocaust victims in heaven. The trend has been spreading quickly, but it has equally quickly caught the attention of the public who has stood strongly against it. Even Auschwitz Museum spoke up against the trend, calling it out for “trivialization of history.”

How the kids are learning photography on TikTok
TikTok, the video-based social media app, usually conjures visions of teens mimicking the latest dance craze, but it’s probably better described as short attention span YouTube. In 2017, ByteDance, the Chinese-owned parent company of TikTok, acquired the Musical.ly app, which had gained a toehold with an under-18 demographic by becoming a replacement for the comedy-oriented Vine app along with a burgeoning lip synching community.
