Inside TikTok’s New Incubator For Black Creators

The app – long derided both for squelching LGBTQIA voices and exploiting Black creators – reacted to the George Floyd protests by starting an incubator for Black voices. How’s it working now? “Program members bonded. … They shared legal advice, sample media kits, tips on talking to potential agents or collaboration partners and the stresses of turning a hobby into a career.” And, TikTok says, the program will likely be expanded. – Los Angeles Times

Revisiting TikTok Before It Was TikTok, A Long, Long Time Ago

“From 2014 to 2018, the Chinese app was where kids — as in, literal children and very young teenagers — would lip-sync to 15-second clips of Shawn Mendes and Bebe Rexha songs, or maybe an audio track of a funny Vine. The music played as you recorded; you could slow it down and speed it up and make cuts while filming. That was pretty much the extent of its technical features, and if it sounds like TikTok, that’s because it eventually became TikTok, after it was acquired by another Chi...

Cepillin, Clown Beloved Across Latin America, Has Died At 75

Cepillín, whose non-performing name was Ricardo González Gutiérrez, was a Mexican clown with a half-century-long career.

TikTok Is Now Where Musicians Go For Rough Drafts

TikTok has dramatically changed how songs, pop in particular, get made. “In some cases, performers are trying out ideas on the platform to see if they catch on.

TikTok Fame Remakes A Young Artist’s Narrative

A young Australian potter thought she’d always be known to other people as “the cancer girl.” But her popularity on TikTok has changed that understanding – and her life – dramatically. “Sherritt has gained half a million followers on TikTok by hosting a wildly successful series from her Ballarat art shed, where every week she makes a new piece from a giant pile of mystery slip casting moulds.” – The Guardian (UK)

The Musical Fantasy World Created By Teens That Has Spawned Three Concept Albums For Broadway Shows

Yes, it’s partly because of TikTok and the world of duets, collaborations, and free-flowing (but in this case, very directed) creativity.

The Recipe For A Viral TikTok Dance Hit

“Drawing from a lexicon of hip-hop-inspired moves, … the micro-dances of TikTok are typically front-facing and most animated from the hips up, tailored to the vertical frame of a smartphone screen. Governed by time limits of 15 or 60 seconds, they also tend to stay in one place; you can do them pretty much anywhere. While these TikTok dances might seem purely fun and frivolous, there’s an art to creating and performing them in such a way that gets attention.” – Dance Magazine

TikTok Asks Judge To Nullify Trump’s Threat Of A Ban

How to Integrate Instagram Reels Into Your Marketing Strategy

This article has been contributed by Thomas S. Have you heard about Instagram’s new feature, Reels? Described by some as Facebook’s clone of TikTok, Reels allows users to create and share 15-second video content in a dedicated feed on Instagram. Whilst TikTok has a lot going for it, including its growth trajectory, Reels allows you to reach the Instagram user base which is a slightly different audience.

TikTok Says It’s Paying Out Hundreds Of Millions To Video Creators. Some Of Those Creators Are Ticked Off

It seemed like very good news when the company said it was setting aside $200 million to compensate the users who make its mini-videos. It seemed even better news when TikTok raised the amount to $1 billion in the U.S. and at least $1 billion more overseas. Now some of those creators say they’re getting a few dollars a day even when they get six-figure view numbers; others say their traffic mysteriously drops after they sign up. Many say the program is far from transparent. – Wired

Trump’s TikTok Ban: National Security Or Freedom Of Speech?

The company — which operates its U.S. headquarters out of Los Angeles and hired Disney veteran Kevin Mayer as its CEO this spring — said it has been working with the government for nearly a year to find solutions to the concerns, including expressing a willingness to sell its U.S. operations to an American company.  “What we encountered instead was that the Administration paid no attention to facts, dictated terms of an agreement without going through standard legal processes, and tried to inse...

Soooo… We Were Trying To Cut Down Our Screen Time Before This Happened. How’s It Going?

Covered in screens these past few weeks, I have noticed some positive changes. I FaceTime my friends so much that I know them better than I did before.
