“Why you so obsessed…” with Tik Tok? 

 Tik Tok is used as a platform for creating, sharing and discovering short music videos. With this new arising trend, more students are becoming addicted to making and watching Tik Toks. 

“Once you start using it, you just keep scrolling,” Mauricio Banuelos, sophomore, said. 

Students use it to make funny videos with their friends and learn the dances, but they also use the app for scrolling through and watching other people’s Tik Toks. The app was formerly known as Musical.ly, before Tik Tok bought the app and changed the name.

 “People started using it again because it became popular and they started using it as a joke,” Katrina Ng, sophomore, said.

Now, people at LZ are making and posting their Tik Toks, but there is a group of students whose Tik Tok become more famous than they thought. Connor Furlong, sophomore and a group of his friends, made and posted a Tik Tok over homecoming weekend and within a week it had over 3.8 million views. 

 “We thought it was funny and it was apart of the trend that was going on,” Banuelos said. Mauricio was the one recording the Tik Tok, but it was posted on his friend, Connor’s account. Connor has a few other Tik Toks posted on his account, but not with as many views as the one from homecoming.
