The students’ difficulties on speaking skills should be overcome through an appropriate teaching media, such as Tik Tok. The researcher conducted research at SMPN 2 Balaraja with Eight-Grade students. Then, the purpose was to find out whether TikTok as teaching media influence the students’ speaking skills or not by applying non-equivalent control group design. The researcher picked the sample by using purposive sampling technique, whereas the teacher recommended VIII J as experimental class, and VIII I as control class. In collecting the data, the researcher used pre-test and post-test that were done orally. The result of hypothesis test using t-test formula showed that the alternative hypothesis was accepted because the tcount ≤ ttable or 8.04 ≥ 2.00 with the significance level of 0.05 (5%). So, it can be concluded that Tik Tok as Social Media influenced the students’ speaking skills at Eight-Grade of SMPN 2 Balaraja.
