There aren’t many apps I can say that I’m honestly afraid to download.
TikTok is one of those apps.
I’ve watched my sister and my girlfriend filter through video after silly video until they find something which sends them into a fit of uncontrollable laughter… and looks like a stupid amount of fun.
My concern is that if I open the TikTok floodgate, I won’t be able to close it.
So I’m running an experiment.
Tomorrow morning I’m going to create a TikTok account and download a social media tracker which I will use to monitor my usage over the course of a week.
Next Thursday I’ll check how much time I’ve spent and ask those closest to me if they’ve noticed any changes in my behaviour.
I’ll then decide whether I delete it for good or leave it on my phone.
Either way, I’ll keep you posted.
