The pros and cons of using TikTok compared to other social media platforms
TikTok has become one of the most popular social media platforms in recent years, with users spending an average of 52 minutes per day on the app.
TikTok offers a unique and engaging way to consume content, with short videos that are easy to watch on the go, thanks to its algorithm that is designed to keep users engaged. The app is also very visually appealing, and it’s easy to scroll through and find interesting content. In addition, TikTok offers a unique opportunity for creators to reach a wider audience and build a following.
However, TikTok also has some drawbacks compared to other social media platforms. First, TikTok is less diverse than other platforms like Instagram and YouTube, with a majority – 66% of users being under the age of 30. This can make it difficult for older users to find content that appeals to them. That does leave 1/3, 333 million active users over the age of 30.
In addition, TikTok is less conducive to building long-term relationships than other platforms. Although you can follow other users and leave comments on their videos, there is no direct messaging function. As a result, TikTok is best used as a way to consume content passively, rather than as a way to connect with others.

The app is a fun and engaging way to connect with potential customers and showcase listings in an innovative way. In addition, TikTok is a cost-effective marketing tool that is free to use. As more and more agents begin to see the benefits of using TikTok, it is likely that even more will join the platform in the months and years to come.Selling houses is no longer a time-consuming, tedious procedure thanks to TikTok – it can be both entertaining and informative.
