Social media addiction is something one never notices. You can never know when too much is too much when it comes to the use of social media.
TikTok is one of the social media tools that is said to be the most addictive in the world. The platform is so addictive that in countries such as China, it is limited on how many hours people should access it.
Here are 5 reasons why you might be a TikTok addict:
1. Scrolling through other people’s videos
This “symptom” is the worst because once you are at this stage, you never want to let it go. There are people who spend more than 10 hours scrolling through TikTok videos.
2. You always want to record yourself
If you are among those who spent hours recording themselves either dancing or doing anything, then posting the same on TikTok, you are an addict. There are those who can’t stay a minute without recording themselves.
3. Concerned about likes and views
Once you post your video on TikTok, you are always on a constant lookout to see if someone has either liked or left a comment. If your video stays for 30 minutes without a like, you get so mad that sometimes you run into depression.
4. You have turned the notification on
This means you cannot do without knowing what is happening on TikTok. You want to get every notification of what is being posted and discussed. If you stay a minute without a notification, you check whether your phone has a problem.
5. You are always telling everyone about it
If you are among those who get their “news” from TikTok on the latest trends, fashion, and celebrities, then “share” them with others, you are an addict. There are people who can’t just stop blubbing about TikTok.
