Did you know, there is a community of TikTok influencers teaching millions of people about personal finance?
When lockdown hit the UK in March of 2020, our lives ground to a halt and we found ourselves stuck at home with little to do. But out of this tough, stressful time came something beautiful. The TikTok app.
Now, it may get some hate, but it sure kept us occupied. And communities on every theme and topic you could think of, blossomed. These communities grew rapidly and continue to grow. Want to try new, easy recipes? Learn about nature? Watch people discuss politics? It’s all on TikTok.
But our favourite topic to explore? The booming system of people teaching others about finance, and the excited audience, finally understanding parts of their money and financial lives previously not understood. This has come to be known as ‘FinanceTok’ or ‘MoneyTok’.
