Maybe you started using a computer before you even learned to read and write. So are you fast on the keyboard? You will find the answer to this question in this Spacebar  Counter.


I am 29 years old and have been using a computer since the age of 12. But the next generation started earlier than me. Current generations were born into technology.


So which generation uses the faster keyboard? Here you can find the answer to this question with this test. Gather your friends of different age groups and make this contest.


What is the Spacebar Game Challenge?

As I mentioned above, since the invention of the keyboard, there has always been a competition over the space key. Office workers especially liked to make spacebar challenges in their spare time.


But thanks to TikTok this contest has become popular again.


Users shoot videos using Championxiii's song. 


They are running the Spacebar counter along with the word "Splash" in the song. There are maybe thousands of videos made this way.


If you are wondering how many times you will press the space key in 1 minute, you can test it in the vehicle above.


First results may not come out very well. But keep working. Believe Progress, not luck. Tiktok users also perform this challenge for 15 days. And They share the result with their followers. As you can imagine, they improve day by day.


So what is the history of this trend? It all started with a video of a user named airidasgustas.


Airidas is not an influencer with millions of followers. It has even below average followers. However, according to Tik Tok data, he started this viral challenge trend. You can see the first video shot from this link. The Spacebar Counter game spread all over the world in a short time.


It's a simple concept. Start pressing Space as soon as you start the timer. Be as fast as possible until 1 minute is up. And share your results. 600 thousand people liked the results shared by popular_editz1.


Some users really pushed the limits by breaking awesome records. However, in a short time, even videos about tricks that can be applied to get successful results started to be published.


Thousands of people are still shooting videos about Spacebar today. Some users are doing this challenge not with their fingers but with their tongues


This user was also someone who didn't have many followers, but the video he shot with his tongue was watched millions of times. I think Andy Warhol was right. One day everyone will be famous for 15 minutes. 


This famous quote by Warhol, one of the iconic figures in popular culture, really accurately describes the time we live in now. And when this word was spoken, there was no strong media outside of television. It's really impressive.



Tiktok vs Instagram

Here I want to talk about Tik Tok's tremendous power. Someone with very few followers can reach millions of people and create a trend. There have been Social Media sites since the 2000s. However, few of them are as democratic as Tiktok.


If you don't have a follower on Instagram, nobody will see your content. It doesn't matter how perfect you are. But after TikTok became very popular, Instagram also changed its content policies. With a new type of content called Reels, videos similar to TikTok started to be published.


Instagram is still not as democratic as its new rival. But Reels really does do well with interactivity.
