Tik Tok

A quick question from the 

I've been on Instagram and Facebook as a primary means of keeping people up on the strut and promoting the Live Stream for 10 years now.  Things do appear quieter lately and a bit stale.

Does anybody have experience with Tik Tok as a means for general record nerd tom foolery for Gen X'ers and the emerging Millenial crate digger crowd?

    Same... I'm deathly afraid of it, but don't want to be a dinosaur.

    I mostly follow record collectors on Instagram. There are still plenty of good records being posted there. I'm completely disconnected when it comes to Tik Tok though. I can't say if it is worth pursuing for promoting your live stream or not. It can't hurt I guess but I don't know how many record nerds are actually using it. I think the issue lately has been that once the pandemic started Instagram became super saturated with live streams. Then with the copyright issues and everyone getting shut off midstream everyone split off into other venues. Mixcloud, Youtube, Twitch etc. That division makes it hard to unify everyone because we're being pulled into multiple directions. I still try to tune into streams when I can though and have done a little streaming myself but I don't promote it at all. I'm glad to see you are keeping at it though. I do envy your setup. I can tell you spent a while getting that all dialed in.

    embrace the dinosaur in you and get a T-Rex costume to do your record nerdery Tik Toks, like Tino Asprilla did with his horses



    Millenials love that shit

  • An inflatable T-rex spinning raers seems like it'd have some lucrative tiktok-crossposted-to-twitter potential, at the very least

    If it's any reference, Angelique Kidjo gets about 6k views and 600 likes in a day for singing some Nina Simone

    I recently discovered her version of Summertime. I was shocked to find that it came out 20 years ago. I thought for sure it was something new. It’s awesome.

    i worked for tik tok last year. i just moderating clips, but one of my friends where moderating swedish live streams. there was this swedish rock producer i never heard about fucking around in his studio, and that was one of the biggest streams, if not the biggest. live streams seemed to have a different audience than the clips and tik tok is still growing and projecting huge growth, so i don't see why you shouldn't live stream on tik tok. t-rex costume is a great idea.

    how old the users where seemed to vary from market to market. the spanish talking market had the oldest average age, followed by the brits. the spanish market includes all the spanish talking south american countries and that is the crazy part of tik tok. the brits are weirdly obsessed by some kind of soap drama or reality drama. maybe it was that tik tok house. weird videos with dialogues written down.  

    my own market was the youngest and had some young gay christians that had found straightness through christ and now showed off how fun christianity in some very gay videos. the brightest of them said fuck that and went back to being christian and gay, the fallout was immense. 

    this is coming from someone who disliked working for tik tok as a company and disliked the actual job i had.
