Parents are being given the ultimate guide to understanding the language used by their children on one of the most popular apps – TikTok.

The language experts at Busuu have broken down common phrases often used on the video-creating app to help parents and older generations trying to keep up with the ever-changing world of social media.

Every few years another social media app like Snapchat and Instagram takes the world by storm – and for this generation TikTok has become a must-have.

The app has become hugely popular, and has provided Gen Z and millennials with a boatload of new language and slang words.

A spokesperson for Busuu has said: “TikTok has just taken on a life of its own over the last 12 months. There are so many inside jokes that have grown from it used by creators or viewers in the comment section.

“A lot of these jokes rely on satire and are often sarcastic so older generations jumping on the app for the first time may not really grasp it so quickly.

“TikTok has also come with it’s own batch of new words like ‘fyp’ and ‘duet’ that are specific to the app.

“This quick guide will help get anyone up to date with the app without them having to spend too long decoding the world of TikTok.”
