with the flood of ‘tiktok kids’ on the app, byte has received so much wonderful publicity! but alongside this has come lots of hate. this post is simple- my advice is: respond to the hate with kindness. these kids are just having a laugh but don’t truly mean any harm. it’s very different right now and it will calm down soon but don’t fight it with more hatred or sass, rather be nice and let them know they’re welcome here. it’s important to let the newcomers know that they’re welcome or else they’ll be hostile back and the community will progress into being incredibly toxic.
they’re not used to older people being on tiktok so this is new to them- make it clear that you’re all kind and just here to enjoy the app like they are.
you can’t fight fire with fire : )
