The social media landscape has become a cluttered and confusing place in recent years. From Elon Musk's eventful (to say the least) rebranding of Twitter to the introduction of Meta's Threads, it's hard to know exactly what platform caters to what content these days. So let's introduce another one!

Yep, apparently TikTok is working on a photo-based app to rival Instagram (the app that used to be photo-based, remember?). Leaked code from the latest version of the app allegedly makes multiple references to 'TikTok Photo'. (Want to start creating content? Check out the best TikTok cameras available now.)
