Why is everyone so obsessed with the “In 2022 I Will" filter trend on TikTok?

Total obsession over the “In 2022 I Will" filter on TikTok makes so much sense because people love having an idea about what’s to come in the future. This filter isn’t meant to be taken too seriously though since a lot of the words that might pop up on your screen with it are totally playful. When you use the filter for this trend, a rectangular message bubble will pop up over your head. It'll appear super similar to an incoming iPhone text message.

Some of the results you might end up with are “getting a dog," "finding true love," “becoming famous," or “getting 100,000 followers.” Although this filter simply exists to be silly and fun, it’s still extremely funny to see what your results for 2022 might be. Fans of astrology will certainly get a rise out of this one!
