Challenges on TikTok and on social media platforms in general represent our primal animal nature and how we learn from others. It is natural for us to imitate others since we are social animals.
In the end, imitating one another brings us closer together. In some ways, we start to better understand each other.
Whether such challenges are good or bad depends on what we imitate.
For instance, if there are challenges that get people involved in doing good deeds to each other, and which increase positive social connection and helping others, then they are good for society and I’m all for them.
