Seven years ago, an app called Musically appeared on the social media scene. Sadly, people thought the app was a joke and it failed. But then, three years later, the creators decided to take another shot with the app TikTok. It was not until 2018 when the app was recognized. At first, people made fun of the users and the idea of the app. Personally, I took so many insults that I had to hide the fact that I used it. After making fun of others for using it, many people then downloaded TikTok just to make fun of it. However, they unknowingly slipped into its addiction.

If you know at least 13 of these sounds and what their story is, you are an OG. If you score 4, then you are a newbie! If you score something in between, you were late to the band wagon. Good luck!

“Us Users Are Talented”- Melanie

Remember when TikTok was first discovered? People made fun of the idea. However, it takes a lot of skill to make a quality video!

"Betty Boop” (Original Mix)- Bang the House

Erik Wakeham was one of the first people to go viral in TikTok. His videos started trends and began the journey to new ideas.

Repeating Hallway– Chelsaurus

Ah, the classic “Repeating Hallway.” I once attempted re-making this video. It did okay, but not well enough to go viral. Just remember, magic is in the air!

@fireblaise_

“Is this some kind of repeating hallway?” #replier #sendhelp #rip

♬ Repeating Hallway - 🦕CHELSAURUS🦕

Intro III - NF

What I believe to be one of the first duets where people reacted with another video.

This is where things started to get a little 2020 when the newer members hopped on the app. I call it “the tipping point.”
