NEWS IN THE TIKTOK AGE

How can news journalists use TikTok? TikTok is a short-form, video-sharing app that allows users to create and share 15-second videos, on any topic. Especially the younger people use the platform to make dancing-videos and copy each other. But can it be used as a platform for news?

In this session you get a short introduction to TikTok, but most of all you will be inspired and learn how to use TikTok when it comes to news. And get insights on how other news medias use the platform to reach young people.
