    I am seeing that everyone is now leaned towards tik tok after the IG updates. And like many many others, I believe the same.
    What's your take?

    It is for you if you make it for you.

    IM is not all about what others are doing but rather what you create.

    Wait!

    That is business in general!

    Eureka!

    Instagram still has way more monthly active users than TikTok so I wouldn't say it's even close to being dead yet.

    Tik tok (formerly musically) has been around for ages, if you think Instagram is strict then you aren't ready for musically, there hasn't been a single public automation tool for musically ever since it became popular, only experienced programmers have been spamming it with private bots.

    But yeah if you can't make Instagram work then don't even think about "Tik tok".

    Tiktok has 58.70 Million monthly visits. Instagram has 3.20 Billion monthly visits.
    Please do some research before you make statements like this...

    One of the worst takes I've seen on this forum. Not only is tik tok no comparable to IG, but it will never attain a fraction of IGs success. It all coomes down to target audience, TIK TOK is primarily focused on the preteen demographic and IG has an overall broader demographic of all ages. Like every youth brand before it Vine, MtV, etc. it will go the way of the dinosaur.

    I actually made one ‘funny video’ on TikTok and this got viral af. (1.5M views and 136k likes with a lot of comments and shares). This got me 10k followers in only 2 weeks, some of them followed me on IG after this (TikTok has a very nice CTA for Instagram and even Youtube). So you could use TikTok to drive traffic to your instagram (most people on TikTok are around 12y old so they are very naive and will follow you easily)
    Hopefully this was helpful :)

    Tik Tok only matter if you had over million of followers, there's a lot of bots there and majority of user are in Indian and Indo which don't help get any brand deal

    Not a chance! I don't believe that tik tok could challenge the way Instagram serves the businesses. You can become a good influencer on tik tok if used correctly. But I don't feel it can outcompete Instagram in any manner.
