With 2020 coming to a close (thankfully), TikTok have compiled the top 10 in certain categories, such as viral videos, trends, hashtags, challenges etc.

TikTok has seen tremendous growth in 2020, becoming the social media platform of choice for many Gen Zers and beyond, around the world stuck at home during the pandemic.

It’s been our honor to watch these videos and creators grow and share what have become iconic, sometimes even life-changing, moments of 2020. TikTok is here to bring joy, and with the year we’ve experienced, I’m thrilled to take a trip down memory lane and celebrate the myriad of ways the TikTok community helped us come together, bridge divides, and find both lightness and poignancy when we needed it most.
