Is TikTok right for your social media marketing efforts? Should you be investing time into the latest short-form video trend?
There are various questions around TikTok, from how it operates, to its ownership, to how long it will stick around, rising competition, etc. The answers on each of these fronts are not definitive, and will largely come down to your own perception and opinion based on reports.

The pointers are somewhat generic, but they may provide some guidance for your approach.
