TikTok has become a global obsession, but one company is willing to fork out $1,000 to one social media addict to put the phone down for three months.

Jewellery company Shane Co wants to help one contest winner with a TikTok detox, offering $1,000 to give up scrolling the social media platform for three months.

The winner will have to report their findings and experience back to the company.

TikTok has over a billion monthly active users and was the most downloaded app in 2021.


Meta (formerly Facebook) has even specifically flagged that TikTok is a growing threat to its family of apps, which include Facebook and Instagram.

How to apply

Here's more information about how to apply:

  • Shane Co. is looking for highly active TikTok users to fill out the Google Form on Shane Co.'s latest The Loupe Blog post.

  • Applicants must explain why they would be a good fit for this role and how they would spend their time away from the app. They will also be required to share their current TikTok screentime with the Shane Co. team.

  • Deadline to enter is Friday, June 24th and applicants must be 18 years or older to apply.

  • The Shane Co. Team will review applications and reach out to the winner via email.

The TikTok sensation

Social media is offering a new avenue for wealth creation and for some influencers that wealth is staggering.

Charli D’Amelio was the biggest earner in 2021, raking in $17.5 million through endorsements, television deals, and a clothing range, among other projects.

However, unless you’re in the top 1 per cent, most will struggle figuring out how to carve out a stable income.

There are ways to monetise your content on TikTok though. Check out Yahoo Finance’s three tips for making money on TikTok.
