Why is binge-watching so popular? The answer lies in how our brains function while we’re watching:
it makes us feel good - binge-watching a show produces a continuous stream of dopamine in our brains. Dopamine gives the body a natural, internal reward of pleasure that reinforces continued engagement in that activity.
binge-watching gives us an escape from the day-to-day grind. TV viewers are tuning in to a different world. This is a form of escapism that is especially welcomed today.
TikTok will change the way your social media works - even if you're avoiding it. Hello, person who is, statistically speaking, a human adult aged approximately "millennial" to "boomer." The analytics suggest a high likelihood that you're aware there is an app named TikTok, and a similarly high likelihood that you're not totally sure what it's all about.
TikTok has stepped over the point between the familiar self-directed feed and experience based on algorithmic observation and inference. When you open the app, you don't see a feed of your friends, but a page called "For You" - It's an algorithmic feed based on videos you've interacted with or just watched.
It's not full of people you know or things you've explicitly told it you want to see. It is constantly learning from you and builds up a model of what you tend to watch. In short, it is like an Instagram centered entirely around its "Explore" tab.
