TikTok isn’t only for Gen Z. There are many 65-year-olds+ that you might want to follow for their TikTok content. Some bring humor, while others deliver comfort. And there are wholesome times to be had with these friendly, encouraging, and imaginative creators.
Just to summarize, TikTok is a video-sharing app that allows users to create and share short-form videos on any topic. It’s mainly mobile-based, although you can watch TikTok videos using the web app at tiktok.com. The platform allows users to get creative with their content using filters, stickers, voiceovers, sound effects, and background music.
