Tik Tok and the possible perseverance of Cultural Imperialism
Tik Tok is one of the most used apps around the world, with all kinds of videos by users. This app has the largest number of users than any other app. Its success is due to the impact of the trending videos and songs used as well as the various kinds of topics covered in the content that interest several demographics. One of the greatest qualities of this social media platform is the diversity that exists and the freedom they offer you, creating a safe space for expression which lead us to the question that started our research: does Tik Tok allow for cultural imperialism to continue because of the magnitude of the app? Or has globalization been stronger and created a much more pleasant exchange of cultures between users?
