Host Weekly Challenge: Week 4 – TikTok

For the last 3 weeks, we’ve been taking on a variety of different challenges that have been sweeping the internet. From tea bag throwing to juggling, we’ve been putting our skills to the test and we’ve been asking our teams and students to get involved too.

But this week, we wanted to mix things up. We, like many others, have been trying to find new ways to kill some time and have some fun whilst in lockdown. And, in doing so, last week we found ourselves on TikTok.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with TikTok, it’s basically a social media channel used to create videos; short (3 to 60 seconds) dance, lip-syncing, comedy and talent videos.

So, with our interest sparked in this increasingly popular app, we’ve created our very own TikTok account (follow us @hoststudentsuk). But now what do we do?

Week 4: TikTok Challenges

Well, that’s where you come in. We’re after some inspiration for our videos and some fun ideas to get us going on TikTok.

So, if you’re on TikTok, what challenges have you been getting involved with? We want to know (and see) what challenges are the most popular, the most fun to create, the easiest or hardest to do, and what ones can you do if you’re on your own?

Below are some of the dance challenges we’ve come across in our short time on TikTok.

Time to get creative

Think you can do better than some of these famous faces can? Share your best TikTok videos with us by tagging us in them on TikTok itself, or share with us via your Instagram Story, Twitter or Facebook by tagging us (@hoststudentsuk).

If you’re not yet on TikTok, but like us, feel intrigued by it, then why not give it a go? Even if you don’t fancy creating any yourself just yet, there’s so many different videos on there to watch; you’ll be entertained for days!

If you are on TikTok, don’t forget to give us a follow – as with all our social media channels, you’ll find us @hoststudentsuk.

Do you have a fun idea for a weekly challenge that we could all try at home? Send us a message on social media and we’ll consider it for future challenges! Learn more about our #AtHomeWithHost Campaign

#HostEnvironmentalPledge.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.

To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.

It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.
