For the past few years, there have been two major social media networks that have dominated the landscape. While Facebook has fallen to third place in popularity behind Instagram and TikTok, these two platforms are constantly competing for users. Which one is better? Let’s take a closer look!
The first major difference is how the content is shared. Instagram was designed as a photo-sharing network, while TikTok was originally created to be used for short videos only – though it has since been updated with photos and longer video options. This means that people are likely to share different types of content depending on what platform they’re using: you’ll see more photographs on Instagram whereas there will be many more videos going up on TikTok.
Another thing to consider when comparing these two platforms is their age ranges; Instagram began in 2010, meaning most users have had access for over six years now and may not find much new or interesting about this site anymore… so why would they still use it? But TikTok only launched back in 2016 and has now already amassed a huge following, meaning it’s not going to be as saturated.
So which is better? Well, if you’re looking for something more visual then Instagram will probably provide what you need; but since TikTok was originally established with short videos only and offers a much larger variety of genres than its rival does today, we think it might suit your needs best too!
– Instagram: photo-sharing network
– tiktok: video sharing site that also allows photos
– competitors: social media sites in the same vein as instagram or tiktok – facebook/twitter/snapchat etc.
Which one do I use though? The question still remains constant.
– You can upload videos as well
– You’re allowed to post multiple photos in a row and they will all link together into one story
– Different filters for your images if you need that personal touch
– The sorting options are easy to navigate so it’s easier to find things like old posts or popular accounts.
*It also has live streaming capabilities, but these aren’t really that great when compared with other apps on the market. This is their biggest drawback at this point.*
– It has tons more genres than Instagram does! If you want something edgier, there’s an option for that – just look up #tiktokxcreative by @tiktok to find out for some inspiration
– If you want to share your meal, take a selfie with friends or show off that new outfit, there is something for it. And if you don’t know what kind of video to make
– It also has live streaming capabilities, but these aren’t really that great when compared with other apps on the market. This is their biggest drawback at this point.
*It’s more about short bursts of creativity than long videos*
*The only downside to TikTok right now might be the lack of privacy features which could prove problematic in time.*
Conclusion: Instagram still holds the lead as the number one social media app for making and sharing video content. But at this point, it seems like a close second behind TikTok.
