Have these viral videos landed on your FYP?

TikTok has unveiled its Year On TikTok 2021, its annual year-end that looks back on the trends, creators, movements, and moments that made this year one to remember in the Philippines and around the world.

With the video-sharing app reaching new heights this year, it’s no wonder that it’s lent a hand on some of the most interesting viral trends this year.

“There is something really special about the global community on TikTok that people just can't find anywhere else,” said TikTok's COO, Vanessa Pappas. “2021 was a year for connection and we’ve seen people on TikTok laughing together, entertaining us, starting cultural phenomenons, and teaching us new things.”

True enough, with its over 1 billion users, it remains to be seen what TikTok has in store for the future. For now, check out the trending TikToks that made it to their 2021 best-of list.
