There are many different trends that have and are starting to circle the media at the end of 2018 and the beginning of the 2019 year. These trends are on the rise on social media and have been big in the past few weeks.

One of the trends is TikTok. This is a media app that is used to create and share short videos. The app was launched in China and introduced overseas a year later. This app allows people to make videos that they can share with their friends and can post for others to see. Tiktok has been downloaded more than 80 million times in the United States and 800 million times worldwide.

Another trend circling the media is satisfying videos. There are videos that are being uploaded to social media that are “oddly satisfying.” These videos include soap cutting, slime, and cutting sand. There are so many videos that are called oddly satisfying because they appeal to someone’s senses. These kinds of videos attract millions of views and have been a very trendy topic the past few months.

The last topic that is trending on the media is what people call ASMR. This is an abbreviation for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. This is a calming, pleasurable feeling that is often accompanied by a tingling sensation. In these videos, people make noises and sounds like eating, whispering, etc. People seem to watch these videos because it also appeals to their senses.

These are just some of the trending subjects that are coming into this 2019 year. While some, like myself, do not understand why these videos are trending so well and getting so many views, others believe that these videos are interesting and appeal to the senses.
