Social media platforms like YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram have paved a way for everyone having a creative streak to showcase their talent through creative videos, pictures and more. TikTok, in particular, has gained massive popularity making it one of the best social media apps to date. In 2018, it surpassed giants like Facebook, YouTube, and Snapchat for being downloaded more than a billion times.
If you don’t know already, you can record videos of yourself lip-syncing to songs and comedy sketches. Another great feature that it offers is the ability to reply to another user’s video, which creates a split-screen with your reply on one side and the video of the user you are replying to on another.
TikTok has gained quite a lot of fame in Pakistan as well as bagging thousands of Pakistani users. Not only that we have our very own TikTok celebrity that has the most amount of followers. Her cute expressions and creative style have several hooked. At such a young age, she definitely has the charisma and acting skills.
This young lady has around 1.6 million followers. It’s crazy how social media has made even mundane things entertaining with memes, funny videos and now with apps like TikTok, there’s a plethora of content available bringing fame to ordinary people. Like Areeqa for example. A 16-year old that has now become an internet sensation. If it wasn’t for platforms like these, girls and boys like her would be going about their regular lives as normal people.
In 2019, professions have definitely evolved and branched out with the advancement of internet and web applications. We have YouTubers that work full-time as content creators and video-makers; they have not only learned the art to write a good script and act but also how to do edit their videos to perfection. These multi-skilled YouTubers gain massive following and views.
One wouldn’t take these TikTok and YouTube celebrities seriously, but with monetization, one can earn an entire livelihood through making quality content.
