The app was an international counterpart of Douyin, which was made by the same company. On November 9, 2017, ByteDance bought Musical.ly,[2] then merged into "TikTok" in August 1/2, 2018.[1][3] Since then, The app has had over 1 billion users registered on the platform. TikTok has become known for being involved in some screamers and shock sites.

History[edit | edit source]

1092paradise.com, one of the TikTok screamers.

As TikTok has become very popular, it has also become known for screamers uploaded on the platform, reaching over thousands of views. Despite this, shock site 1444, a suicide video of a Russian user named Gleb Korablyov, was the first to be popularized by TikTok for its shock value. It has also started a DoNotGoogle trend, where users refrain from searching for any disturbing stuff on Google, mostly shock sites and videos.

The earliest TikTok screamer was TW-Jumpscare, a video that depicts a girl doing a worm before noticing a huge thud from downstairs and someone knocking on her backroom door. Right after, the girl quickly headbutts the screen with a scream from the survival horror game franchise Five Nights at Freddy's. This screamer is similar to Impossible Backflip. On May 19, 2020, a video without a caption or name was uploaded to TikTok by Russian user artem_mokrushin. The video depicts a woman sitting on the mattress and a man turning off the light before she finds a figure during which the light is turned off. After being asked to do so, the man turns on and off the light two times, at which point the figure appears and quickly approaches the screen. The video had received over 20 million views until a Twitter user, BenjaminBell, tweeted the video with the caption "2020 in One TikTok". It has since become known to be called by that name.[4]

The Kekma.net website began to rise from July to September 2020, with many videos about it reaching over a thousand views. However, the shock site has led TikTok to blacklist the term, meaning the term will have no results to appear when searched. In September 2020, TikTok was criticized for having a video of Ronnie McNutt's suicide appeared on "For You" feed. Forbes also stated that some disguised "as clips of cute animals." During December 2020, Instagram account mr.lilcarti uploaded a shock video, possibly taken from Hoodsite, depicting a 5-year-old boy named Hozefa Shaikh[5] being accidentally trapped and crushed by the elevator. The moment the video from the account was popularized, it was shortly deleted after many reported deleting the account and its video. On December 20, 2020, TikTok user Aria Cyrus created and advertised[6] her website, 1092paradise.com.

In June 2021, Mayengg03 uploaded a shock video that begins with a young girl dancing to the song "Dick" by Starboy3 before cutting into another video of someone being beheaded. The video was popularized after it was believed that the young girl in the first video was the one being beheaded at the end. However, the theory has not yet been proven, as many claimed the person in the beheading video was a boy, and the people were also saying things to her in Spanish as well. The name had become known after it was posted in a blog post named "Duck Pack 51".

Olha eu vou ser sincero, eu ODEIO esse TikTok, sendo um aplicativo chinês que vive roubando os nossos dados no celular, mesmo no WhatsApp que é bem privado ele consegue de alguma forma, roubar nossos dados pessoais para o governo chinês. Aqui no Brasil eles abraçaram essa porra desse aplicativo, quase todos os amigos no Facebook apenas compartilham essa bosta de TikTok.

Eu não sei como é esse aplicativo nos Estados Unidos, mas eu espero que em algum ano, ela seja declarado proibido em ser baixado em todas as plantaformas de Downaload, caso todas as acusações sejam comprovadas reais

Translation: Look, I'll be honest, I HATE this TikTok, being a Chinese app that keeps stealing our data on cell phones, even on WhatsApp, which is very private, it somehow manages to steal our personal data for the Chinese government. Here in Brazil they embraced this fucking app, almost all friends on Facebook just share this shitty TikTok.

I don't know what this app is like in the US, but I hope that in some year it will be declared banned from being downloaded on all Download platforms if all the charges are proven to be real

This in addition of course to him doing a lot of advertising SPAM in our mobile games, the most famous is that "make easy money using TikTok" advertisement which must be misleading. I don't even know how they removed this FALSE ad from TikTok, which scrolls to this day

whatsapp is owned by facebook, so its definitely not private, but yeah TikTok has a lot of weird people and stupid/dangerous/illegal trends. There are good people on the app but i dont wanna use it because i kind of care about my mental health.
