Hey TikTokers! It's that time again when we bring you up to speed with everything that's been happening on TikTok over the last month. So, grab a cup of coffee and let's dive into the latest updates, trends, and ad campaigns that have caught our eye.

Updates: Community Guidelines and More

TikTok is always evolving, and this month has been no exception. One of the most significant updates we've noticed is the platform's new community guidelines. TikTok is now enforcing a strategy based around balance and dignity, ensuring that content on the app aligns with these values. If you haven't already, you'll likely receive a notification asking you to approve the updated guidelines soon.

Another noteworthy change on TikTok is the removal of the friends tab on profile pages. Instead, TikTok is experimenting with replacing it with an explore tab. This move signals a shift away from the social-native platforms we're used to, like Instagram and Facebook, and a stronger focus on discovering content through the algorithm.

Top Trends: From Michael Scott to Coachella

Now let's talk about some of our favourite trends this month. First up is the Michael Scott meme, featuring a cutout template of the beloved character from The Office holding up a speaker. We've been amazed by the creativity of TikTok users who have transformed this template into countless entertaining videos.Another trend that's been flooding our timelines is Coachella.

From behind-the-scenes footage to music artists' performances and, of course, the outrageous outfits, we can't get enough. We'd love to hear which Coachella moments have been your favourites.Lastly, cutout templates are taking over TikTok, with users showcasing what they're listening to using these innovative designs. It seems like these templates are becoming a staple for TikTok fans.

Ad Campaigns: Storage Solutions and ADHD Planners

As marketers, we can't help but notice the ad campaigns that have been making waves on TikTok. One standout campaign is for an app that frees up phone storage in seconds. The ad cleverly plays on the fear of running out of storage when trying to capture a memorable moment, like seeing Taylor Swift on stage.

Another ad that caught our attention features an ADHD daily planner app called Me Plus. Users have been raving about how this app has changed their lives, making them more productive and organised. As marketing professionals, we can appreciate the effectiveness of these campaigns and their ability to resonate with the TikTok audience.
