Some of the trends featured on TikTok this year highlight how bored the internet was this year. #BoredInTheHouse encouraged users to create a beat about how bored they are. Meanwhile, the #IAmLost tag encouraged users to pour one out for all the great items they’ve lost over the years.
TikTok’s community continues to thrive and will grow throughout 2021, despite Instagram Reels and Facebook Collab. Reels is already pissing people off by taking front and center stage and replacing search in the Instagram app. That hasn’t stopped the feature from being a successful clone for Instagram, though.
