What is Lemon8? All you need to know about the new ‘aesthetic’ app from the creators of TikTok

It's giving OG Insta vibes!

There's a super trendy new app making waves in the social media scene, and influencers are going wild over it. It's called Lemon8, and trust me, it's about to take the social media world by storm.

Lemon8 isn't just any ordinary app. It's the brainchild of ByteDance, the creative geniuses behind TikTok. 

Lemon8 combines the best features of two of the most aesthetically pleasing apps: Instagram and Pinterest - It's like the cool cousin of these platforms, bringing a fresh vibe to your feed.

But hold up, what exactly is Lemon8? Well, it's an app tailor-made for all the stylish peeps out there. It's all about those eye-catching images, so no need to worry about endless videos clogging up your feed. 

Just like TikTok, the app has a ‘For You Page’ to explore images and content you might like, as well as being able to stay updated on those you know you love with the ‘Following’ tab. 

Lemon8 encourages you to let your creativity shine with beautiful and vibrant posts “in an authentic and diverse environment.”

While the app has already taken off over in the UK, US, and Japan, we Kiwis are left patiently waiting. Typical, right? 

But fear not, my friends, Lemon8 will hopefully grace our phones soon, and we'll be able to jump on the bandwagon of a good ol’ aesthetic feed.

One of the coolest things about Lemon8 is its focus on fashion, beauty, food, wellness, and travel. It's all the things we love, packaged into one neat app - It’s giving OG Instagram vibes. 

Now, let's address the elephant in the room. Lemon8 is being hailed as a haven for the ladies and the LGBTQ+ community. Unlike other apps that may leave you feeling a bit uneasy, Lemon8 seems to offer a safer space. 

TikToker Madison (@madisonbravenec) even mentioned feeling secure while using the app. 

She believes it may be because of the “cute” aesthetics and “content creator focus” that makes it a safer place, as people at this stage aren’t sharing too much of their personal lives on the app. Although I don’t think it’ll be long before the sh*t posting takes over.

Only time will tell who will become the next big thing thanks to this app. I bet everyone's itching to join in and create their own viral moments.
