Here you will learn how to make a video and post it using the TikTok app. TikTok is super popular for short videos that are either 15 seconds or up to 60 seconds.
You will need to download TikTok for your iOS or Android device and create a free account. You can create an account using your existing Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or email address.
You can also create a new TikTok account using your mobile phone number. You will need to verify your new account and change your profile name, while the app will check that the name you choose is unique.
After creating your account, you will see the page to view videos. If you really enjoy a particular video you can tap on the heart icon, which is the same as “liking” on other platforms. You also have the opportunity to leave comments and “share” the video to other platforms. On the left of the video, you will see an icon for the video creator’s profile. Tap on this to view their profile page. Once here, you can choose to follow them so you can see their future videos.
The menu bar for TikTok is at the bottom of the screen. You will see 5 icons on the menu bar.
You can also change your privacy settings on your profile page. There are three dots in the upper right-hand corner where you can change your account to private. All new accounts are created as public by default.
It is also possible to have only certain TikTok users view your videos and leave comments. You can also edit your current profile including the description and even the username. If you are a business and want to use TikTok for marketing, then you can change to a Pro account from your profile page.
