Episode Summary

This documentary, led by the BBC’s disinformation and social media correspondent, Marianna Spring, delves into the intriguing and sometimes concerning phenomenon of TikTok “frenzies.”

Over the course of the past year, Marianna has dedicated her investigative efforts to uncovering the connections between various events, including amateur sleuths flocking to crime scenes, instances of anti-social behavior in UK schools, and even riots in France. The common thread that ties these seemingly unrelated occurrences together? They are all examples of the impact of TikTok “frenzies.”

The documentary takes a comprehensive approach to unraveling this complex issue. Marianna not only scrutinizes the numbers and data but also seeks out TikTok users, victims, and former employees to gain a deeper understanding of how high engagement on TikTok surrounding specific topics can lead to real-world consequences.

One of the key aspects explored in this documentary is the extent to which TikTok users are willing to go to garner more engagement, as they compete for followers and likes. Marianna investigates the role played by TikTok’s algorithm and format in driving these behaviors and sheds light on concerns voiced by insiders regarding the app.
