    The thing about Tik Tok is that once you start, there’s no going back. You tell yourself that you’ll go on Tik Tok for a couple of minutes, but 5 hours later you’re still scrolling and a notification pops up

    AYO! Tik Tok Check!

    • Sophie,

      Unlike Synae, I am an old “fart”. I do not understand the appeal of Tik Tok.

      Last week in my students at the U School had an interesting conversation about how Lil Nax X leveraged Tik Tok and a catchy trap-country music beat to fame.

      I will leave Tik Tok to the younger generation. I am trying to control my social media diet in general and don’t trust Old School Facebook or Twitter 🙂

    • Dear Sophie,
      I am very intrigued by your post, “AYO! Tik Tok Check!” because it was very informative on the matter of tik tok and its rising popularity. The way you compared the obsession of tik tok to the addiction of drugs was very excellent. It gave an excellent analogy for other people to understand.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “So can people be addicted to something that does not a person does not physically partake in like drugs and alcohol?” because its a skillful rhetorical question that’ll leave the reader wondering on what the answer may be.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because the way you laid out the text was very organized and interesting.
      -Christopher

    • Dear Sophie,
      I am fascinated by your post, “AYO! TikTok Check!,” because TikTok has been one of the most used social media platforms so far. It is a great way to be creative and express yourself through videos.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “You tell yourself that you’ll go on Tik Tok for a couple of minutes, but 5 hours later you’re still scrolling and a notification pops up telling you to take a break.” I think this is interesting because I downloaded the app as a joke and now I am on it every day. It can be very addicting yet it is used for entertainment and knowledge.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because it is interesting to learn about the different types of social medias and what they are used for.

      -Melissa Aguilar

      • This reminds me of how grateful I was for Tik Tok at the end of March and April–it was a great outlet for my daughters during shelter-in-place!

    • This was a well-done essay on an interesting topic. I’ve been wondering why we’re suddenly getting such cold temperatures in parts of the US so this was a very informative piece. I like how you had your sources dispersed throughout your writing rather than just putting all of them in one paragraph. It was pretty innocuous and objective in explaining the science behind the topic, which I enjoy. I wonder, though, if there is controversy behind this issue and how common of a misconception this is. Overall, I think everyone should read about this to be informed.

    • Hey Sophie,
      I really enjoyed this article because it is very well written and informative. This cleared up some of my confusion and helped me understand climate change a little bit better. Here is a link that I found has more information that I think you would enjoy.
