There is much prejudice around Tik-Tok, one of the hottest social media platforms currently. The biggest however, is probably the one involving the age limit. Many believe that Tik-Tok is only and primarily for the teenage audience. However, there have been numerous instances of “boomers” and “grannies” going viral on the platform and everyone seemed to enjoy it a lot. Of course there is no such a thing as the official age ban.
