A new study on kids’ app usage and habits indicates a major threat to YouTube’s dominance, as kids now split their time between Google’s online video platform and other apps, like TikTok, Netflix and mobile games like Roblox. Kids ages four to 15 now spend an average of 85 minutes per day watching YouTube videos, […]
RT @briansolis: "Kids now spend nearly as much time watching TikTok as YouTube in US, UK and Spain"
Brands, it's not just about reaching them where they are, it's about understanding that they are...TikTok. They are the medium AND the message.
I don't use it but I actually have nothing against TikTok. People on Reddit need to know that outside our bubble, people hate Reddit too, and Reddit steals a lot of content from TikTok and pretty much everywhere else. Just enjoy what you enjoy.
I can’t speak for douyin as I don’t speak anything other than English, unfortunately, but tiktok is short form videos. While clearly tiktok is in competition with YT (as it is taking viewership hours) it definitely isn’t an alternative. At all. I wish there was one.
Basically if you're not a teenager you won't be able to relate to non-Chinese tiktok because they tend to center around gen Z memes/dances/school life/etc, but Douyin is used by everyone (of course still mostly young people) and is more universal. Don't have examples to pull up but you can look up videos online
Yeah I'd say tik tok more competes with instagram, or that it expands on a function instagram only kind of has (and vine used to have). Like 75% of the video content on insta these days is from tik tok
I don't think tik tok will kill youtube, YouTube largely serves a different kind of video viewing purpose. That being said that format might be becoming less "in" but people are always gonna wanna watch longer format content.
Of course there's no reason that has to continue on youtube
I also wish to see that happen if US turns into a shit hole. I still prefer iOS and macOS experience and Linux than Android and Windows.
Or Apple just move their HQ to China. It’s where their entire supply chain is to begin with.
Unfortunately, while many people no longer seek out iPhones purely as a status symbol that they obsessively crave at all costs, iPhones still seem to have a strong position among Chinese consumers. While they typically aren't the most educated of people, I've always found it a little irritating that seemingly most celebrities and KOLs and whatnot post on Weibo using iPhones--why not support domestic brands instead? Although attitudes are shifting recently, especially among younger generations, I do feel that many Chinese still have an inferiority complex about domestic products compared to those from other countries.
The crux is Chinese brands are not seen as "cool". Even though Huawei can compete with Apple and Samsung in terms of hardware specs, its brand image is still seen as "less than" those other brands. In fact, this is basically the major shortcoming of China Inc, it's either categorized as "low quality" or "good quality but not cool". Huawei is in the latter group. However, once Chinese companies do a better job with marketing and given some time, they will eventually be able to win over consumers' preferences.
It doesn't have to be one or the other. Samsung was able to do both. Huawei can do it too if they choose to. They were on their way to attaining #1 spot in phones sales chart but the Google ban and all the bad news surrounding it really dragged them down.
> Who cares what rich celebs or rich ppl buy. Let them waste their money and think they are cool. They aren't. Apple is so 2000s.
You don't but other people do. The rich lifestyle trickles down and has an impact on the pop culture in society which directly affects the general public i.e. the middle class and working class want to emulate the rich.

Indeed. The fact that people with means would rather purchase iPhones and consume foreign brands rather than support domestic brands relegates domestic brands to a lesser status, with the message that people climbing the socioeconomic ladder should strive to "upgrade" out of "good but not cool" (as you stated in your previous comment) domestic brands to truly "cool" foreign brands once they acquire the means to do so. This feeds into an inferiority complex that things from China are lesser than foreign counterparts/offerings, which they should not be if China is to improve its contemporary cultural power and self-confidence.
Interestingly though, with regard to your comment about Samsung, as u/Altruistic_Astronaut noted, many of the rich in Korea still aspire to purchase iPhones over Samsung--although I think with the proper marketing this could be mitigated in China once brand prestige develops further due to Sino-American tensions and the mentality that China and the things it does historically belong at the top, whereas Korea doesn't have the same political incentive or historical dominance.
Pretty much 100% agree with your previous reply to me as well.
5% of the shares. Irrelevant given that it's an american site flooded with americans and american bots,and that many higher ups, especially in the fields of ethics management and moderation, have ties with the CIA
