The battle is the same for many at bedtime: to fight against sleep or to say “come on, another five minutes and I quit.” At the center of this inner dilemma, TikTok has much to be proud of. The application has been able to combine all the ingredients to increase its addictive character and it shows in the numbers.
According to a study conducted last year in the United States, United Kingdom and Spain, young people aged 4 to 15 spend an average of 80 minutes per day on the platform. It’s only five minutes shorter than on YouTube. The concern is that those 80 minutes were well used to do something else before TikTok existed and experienced meteoric growth with containment.
Some users of the application have realized this and are trying to limit the time spent scrolling to infinity on dozens and dozens of videos. Worse still, faced with the impossibility of respecting their own rules, Internet users simply decide to delete the application and go about other occupations.
Have you ever thought to yourself that you are spending too much time on the app? Are you one of those users who are trying to regain control over the time you spend in front of TikTok? Do you impose time constraints on yourself thanks to the “app limits” functions on iOS or “digital well-being” on Android? Have you been more radical in uninstalling the social network from your phone? You can testify by filling out the following form or responding in comment.
