Before TikTok got the best of me, I saw it as nothing but a nuisance. I even mocked my younger relatives for using the app. They were always dancing and role-playing around their phones. So childish, I would think.
Today, TikTok’s short and entertaining video clips have hooked almost everybody. The Gen-Z domination in the form of TikTok in the Philippines is rolling strong. We’re all getting reeled in. Consequently and fortunately, content related to “adulting” has also made its stride in the app. This video-sharing platform is now a good source, even for Pinoy TikTokers seeking financial advice, crypto-related content, and NFT matters.
