Trending on TikTok: #Mosaic
Everyone is a reflection of those around them, and this week, the TikTok community spent some time looking inward, and giving credit to the people who make up their #Mosaic.
Beginning with a video from user @joshuatreenationalpark - not to be confused with the actual National Park - the #Mosaic trend is endearing and thoughtful. In the trend, often set against a 639Hz track designed for meditation, users discuss the quirks, behaviors, phrases and actions that they've adopted from other people in their lives. Whether it's always making time for a midnight snack because of a childhood memory or taking on a signature style because of a specific friend, it's a self-aware trend that often brings out emotional responses.
#Mosaic showcases the diversity of content, genres, and creators that use TikTok. While content is often funny or light hearted, there are always moments where TikTok reminisces and supports one another in an earnest way.
