Update your TikTok feed with these content creators who actually bring some purpose and meaning onto the video-sharing app.

As we all know, TikTok has been the go-to app for both the millennials and Gen-Z. The short-video-sharing social networking app has become one of the biggest social media platforms of our day and age. This is especially true during the early days of COVID-19 last year — TikTok became one of the most-used apps during that time.

Aside from its ban in certain countries for unscrupulous reasons, TikTok still garners massive following through its 800 million active users worldwide. Of course, a somewhat large portion of that (150 million users) are from China, which utilises its Chinese-counterpart app, Douyin. A regular TikTok video varies between a couple of seconds to a full minute, giving users the chance to get creative.

The number of genres you’ll find on the app are staggering. From the regular dance to food, comedy, education, and everything else in-between, TikTok has become a place where one can go viral for a few days and then just die down, given the amount of content one consumes in a day. Instead of bogging yourself down with mind-numbing dance routines or even boring comedy skits and pranks, TikTok is also helping to keep yourself educated and woke.

These are all the TikTok content creators you should be following for invaluable life advice. From real estate to dental care as well as science and even car maintenance, we’ve got you covered.
