More and more TikTok creators are using their platforms to share some interesting bites of knowledge, whether it's facts that sound too crazy to be true, or psychological facts you didn’t know, or interesting cat facts for feline lovers, or facts that show just how rare our bodies are… the list is endless!

For any skeptic out there, we can just point out the fact that learning things on social media is basically using it to your advantage. Especially when keeping in mind it’s also a place for not so pretty things like competition, toxicity, and body dysmorphia.

Tuning in for the facts craze on TikTok, social media content creator and upcoming music artist Kiyahshi has been sharing some very interesting “fun facts you may not have wanted to know” and they've proven to be a huge success, amassing hundreds and thousands (and some, millions!) of views. It seems like Kiyahshi’s audience is growing rapidly with 1.2M followers, so you'd better keep an eye on her and scroll through some fun bits of knowledge right below!

A week later, the group of men encountered these three lions and these lions chased the men off and kept the little girl. And they stayed with this little girl without harming her until the police found her."

To find out more about the author of these viral TikTok video series, we reached out to Kiyahshi, who said she started making them totally random. “When TikTok first came out, I was a little skeptical about it but decided to give it a try and I’m glad I did! I have amazing followers and love to entertain them.”

It turns out, Kiyahshi is also an up-and-coming music artist and she started making beats and Acapella skits on the 2009 Apple Mac on a garage band. “Now, I make beats and record them on my phone. I taught myself how to play guitar on YouTube and it’s been my baby since,” she told us.

“The fun facts I talk about come from many different sources from "wtffacts," "k4knowledge," "knifefeedfacts" and many more. I love reading them and checking the accuracy behind them to see whether it’s true or not. Learning them, in general, is amazing,” Kiyahshi said about her viral video series.

The Hogan twins - they are actually 15 years old now, and yes, it's true they share thoughts, but while Tatiana can see out of both of Krista’s eyes, Krista can only see out of one of Tatiana’s. Also one controls 3 legs and an arm, the other 3 arms and a leg. Totally mind-blowing 😲

Now this survey asks you questions on where you like to go, what is your budget and things you like to do, but they do not tell you where you're going. This company allows you to have a mystery adventure and will send you somewhere that goes along with your survey and budget. They also tried to minimize the travel time so you can go somewhere fast and quick and fun."

The TikTok creator also believes the fun facts make it a perfect conversation starter throughout the day. “‘Did you know' could become a 1h conversation to some people. Knowing information that people wouldn’t know is such a cool thing to talk about. It lets people discover, debate, wonder, or even surprise,” Kiyahshi said.

When asked about the most interesting fact she came across, Kiyahshi said it’s “that an artist named Michael Richards who focused most of his art on planes and even made a sculpture of himself being pierced with planes, died in his art studio on 9/11 in one of the twin towers.”

TikToker Shares "Fun Facts You May Have Not Wanted To Know", Here Are 30 Of The Best "Originally, putting a fish in a fishbowl was a very big misunderstanding. It actually came from Chinese displays because goldfish were meant to be in ponds. And when guests come over, they would temporarily put the fish in a fish bowl. But then it became a popular thing where people are putting fish in a fish bowl permanently. And it's also banned in Rome, making it animal cruelty."

Ιt is. Especially small bowls. Fish need to swim. Also, please don't tap on the bowl/aquarium, the sound is amplified through the water and it's not good for the poor creatures

I've read about it somewhere else. The two met when she was on holiday in India. They fell in love but she'd gone back home, so the man decided to look her up. I think I've seen a photo where they're older and still together. That's all I remember.

They also did it on non-pregnant women and the plant didn't grow."
