I've been watching TikTok videos for some time now, and I have to confess, I'm getting bored with it. Now this is possible a result of the algorithm sending me an increasingly bland selection of content (may it knows me all too well) or maybe it's me wanting something more than dancing, random facts (that I already know), clips from TV shows (that I saw ages ago) and people saying "help me out" to push up their view count. So while of course educators are trying out this new medium, and I'm all for that. Sure, TikTok is fresh and fun, not greasy like Facebook, but I'm wondering how long it will be before the next contender comes along.
