Why Instagram Lost it’s Steam to TikTok in 2020 | MalkamDior

The battle between TikTok and Instagram has been going on for some time now but it getting to a level of competition we have not seen between the two platforms yet.

For longer than Gary has even been talking about TikTok, the platform has been quickly catching ground on Instagram and it looks like Instagram is ready to acknowledge it. Normally when I say “I feel old” or “that makes me feel old” I’m usually saying it to fit in.....until TikTok. Tik Tok wouldn’t work as an Instagram adaption and Instagram wouldn’t work with a Tik Tok adaption. They are too different of platforms.

The whole idea of how users stay on Tik Tok can’t translate over to Insta. Adding photos to Tik Tok would slow down content consumption and people would get off sooner than they would if it were just photos. In my opinion, they are apples and oranges.

TikTok makes me feel like I need to trade in my iPhone for a jitterbug.
If you use these you are:

  • Twitter: Funny 
  • Instagram: Nice Looking 
  • Facebook: close with family 
  • Snapchat: close with friends/popular 
  • Discord: Big into community 
  • TikTok: 12

In this DailyVee, Gary talks about some of the signs he has been seeing from Instagram and the actions they are taking to start combating TikTok which has shown no signs of its growth slowing down. Told my guitar class that for our career day next week I would be doing a session on what it's like to be a TikTok Influencer. Sure, the joke killed, but I derailed my class, so at what cost?

Even if tik tok “fails” the stars and creators that blew up also are blowing up on Instagram and YouTube. So who cares if tik tok dies they have millions of people following them on other platforms too. Remember MySpace. There is always going to be the next best greatest thing ! Here today gone tommarow. If social media fell off the face of the earth, I would be fine. Live your life in the present moment, sometimes things are better off unseen.

He also does a keynote where he touches on some of the reasons why so many of you have still not adopted the rising platforms like TikTok and LinkedIn, and why you need to get on them...
