Have you ever seen someone flip a coin with a forklift? Just place the coins on a hard, smooth surface. Place the tip of the fork about midway above the coin, apply a little pressure, and then press it down gently. The edge of the coin is stressed, causing it to fly up, turn over, and even fly onto the fork. This has to be practiced for a while.
加工 Use the edge of the palm to process salmon instead of cutting slowly with a knife; or cut out dozens of perfect cucumber slices with increasing speed without seeing. Have you ever experienced the joy of a clean and smooth single-pass weld? Or cover a cracked pipe when it splashes mud?
What if you pet a beloved sloth in the zoo? Sometimes it will also caress you. Perhaps, although there is no particular reason, you are just curious about the pre-flight inspection of the Boeing 737 Max? It's scary: as the screen lights up, a mechanical voice reads various things: pull up, wind shear, wind shear, wind shear, terrain, obstacles, obstacles, pull up.
All of this is what I see from TikTok, it is a popular video application and it seems difficult for people to describe it. This app has a lot of teenage users, a lot of music, and a lot ... this, all kinds of things. It is controlled by a mysterious algorithm that allows users to freely shuttle between its huge platforms to achieve any purpose determined by its creator. This app doesn't apologize for wasting your time. Obviously, it is also a good way to kill time at work.
TikTok encourages users to contribute short videos to hashtags, participate in jokes and challenges, or sing along with song clips. Due to the enthusiasm and frequent demands for user content, TikTok has unexpectedly become a force to promote labor visibility.
This platform can sometimes free you from work stress, said TikTok user Shaun Douglas Duenas. Duenhas, 21, is from Guam and currently lives in Houston. He posted a funny video on this app, videos of singing popular songs with the accompaniment, as well as tags and memes, so he accumulated a large number of fans. He works as a ground crew at the airline and occasionally publishes videos that he takes while working. Once, in a 15-second video, accompanied by the music of "Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbow," he led the audience to an empty, ready to reposition and clean Commercial aircraft.
“这个平台有时候可以让你从工作压力中解脱出来，”TikTok用户肖恩·道格拉斯·杜埃尼亚斯(Shaun Douglas Duenas)说。21岁的杜埃尼亚斯来自关岛，现居休斯敦。他在这款应用上发布滑稽视频、跟伴奏演唱流行歌曲的视屏，还有标签和模因，因此积累了大量粉丝。他在航空公司担任地勤人员，偶尔也会发布他在工作时拍摄的视频。有一次，在一段15秒的视频里，伴随着《阳光、棒棒糖和彩虹》(Sunshine, Lollipops and rainbow)的音乐，他带领观众们参观一架空荡荡的、正准备重新归置和清洁的商用飞机。

TikTok does have some familiar features, such as profile and followers, but it relies more on algorithmic recommendations, featured songs, categories and tags than other platforms. This makes it easy for us to see a lot of content about various occupations, which are presented to you concisely by people who are engaged in these jobs: #scrublife （clean life） tag takes you to the hospital; ; #Forgelife (smithing life) takes you into the hot iron world; #farmlife (farm life) takes you to the field.
Most large retailers and restaurant chains have their own labels full of complaints, jokes or comments about employers. There are also many more empathetic clips. No one likes customers who break in a minute before closing. Many videos are taken during breaks. Some were filmed on the way to the next part-time job site. However, more videos were taken in the whisper of a customer, or in the quiet surrounding the boss was aware of. There are tags that are generally applicable to working people, such as #coworkers (colleagues), #working (working), #bluecollar (蓝领), and #lovemyjob (爱 我 的 工作).
People do share their work on any big social platform. But on the relatively new TikTok, users often see content from people they do n’t know. Creative risk is low and popularity is extremely unpredictable. The feedback is amplified to encourage more creativity. Users are motivated to disclose personal information if they want to grow.
There are disadvantages and advantages to this. Browse through larger job-related tags, and the result may be a satisfying surprise-a video of a man peeling the entire salmon skin in just one simple action. (Example of review: "You have a sharp hand.") And the publisher of the video, 44-year-old Gary Kinsey from New York, calls himself a travelling model chef (both a model and a cook)- —I was surprised. That was the first video he posted on this platform, which received more than 6,000 likes, far more than Instagram. His posts on Instagram are mainly carefully prepared finished dishes. He said it was strange and unexpected-but it felt pretty good.
TikTok is entering an era where mobile devices have been greatly integrated into our daily lives. Sharing from one device is the default behavior no matter where you are. At least for now, it's the gateway to massive US jobs. (Or a few more clicks and you will see jobs in China, India or Russia.)
In the long run, social platforms tend to be professional. You can search for jobs in almost all fields on Instagram, but you have to find it and get permission to follow; the most obvious form of labor on this platform is influence, although it doesn't look like labor at all.
YouTube is now a workplace in itself. It pays video authors based on their audience. Although YouTube has many active subcultures related to various jobs, these jobs are often attractive or unique. In the long run, successful YouTube work ends up being YouTube.
But there aren't many ways to make money on TikTok. Just like YouTube and Vine in the early days, everyone is unclear about what they want to do there, except for posting. It is neither pure ambition nor acting. Over time, TikTok's priorities will become clear. If it persists, perhaps people will no longer need the vent in the lounge, or paratroopers with their legs hanging over the back of the aircraft. But now, people are filling this new space with things close to them.
