Episode Notes

The Triller app, first released in 2015, is a social media network where users make and share short videos. Anyone can view videos, but users must sign up for a free account to “like” videos, follow other users, read/make comments, and send direct messages. Users can create professional-looking music videos and vlogs in minutes with the app’s auto-editing algorithm. The app has 100+ filters and videos can be personalized with text, drawings and emojis. Triller’s music library features top trending songs. Since content is user-generated on Triller, it can contain profanity, suggestive dance moves, drinking, and drug use. Accounts and videos can be set to private in the Settings menu.
