Before we talk about the challenges that have become viral TikTok, let’s hear some history. When Vine closed two years ago, it left a colossal hole in our hearts.

The Chinese community TikTok, first popular as Musical.ly in the US, had a surprising rise. It became a never-ending source of short, creative sketches, similar to the even shorter Vine parodies.
It is most popular for its performance memes and lip-syncing based on music and other sound clips.
