TikTok Trends Roundup 2022

TikTok has had another tremendous year. With over 3 billion downloads, and a user increase of over 180%, it’s safe to say we’ve been glued to the addictive app. 

So, what have been the standout trends on TikTok for 2022? 


Ok I like it… Picasso 

Kicking off the TikTok year in review, we have a TikTok classic. Posted originally by @itsreefa, the sound has racked up 1.7 billion views, and over 202.9K videos have been created using it.

It’s not pomegranate…

A soundbite from one of creator Max Fosh’s interviews went viral on TikTok. With 50.3K videos, people were using the soundbite to show situations they mistook something for something else.

Doors vs Wheels

Ah, the age old question… are there more wheels or doors in the world? With over 494.8M views on the debate, we’ve had arguments for Hot Wheels ruling wheels, and advent calendars and cruise ships ruling doors. (We’re Team Wheel).
