Teams with Buzz can dip in to the box at any time and see at-a-glance some of the latest TikToks, memes, videos and photos that are starting to drive interaction, conversation and sharing.

It provides instant creative fuel for everything from ideas for your own social content to discussions on what's grabbing your customers' attention today.

And it helps address one of the biggest challenges around the explosive growth of TikTok – the difficulty of quickly spotting the emerging and genuinely interesting trends among the sheer volume of new videos every day.

Latest trends on TikTok and social media

Tik-Tok's algorithm-driven For You Page is radically different for every user – showing content TikTok recommends for you instead of the kind of content your friends are seeing.

 

This makes it hard to get a broader sense of the things people are seeing beyond your own experience. Read more about the TikTok challenge.

Buzz surfaces a broader eclectic mix of some of the latest TikTok videos, sounds and emerging trends that you might otherwise miss until they appear days or weeks later in trending pages or mainstream news media.
