  • Some complaints and suggestions


    By breannalll
    I like this app, but there's a couple of things I wish could be fixed and added to it. Firstly, I used to be able to just swipe my screen to switch to the for you page and following, but I can't anymore. It was a convenient feature and I miss it. Secondly, I love the favorites feature. I like to put videos in there to watch later. But I have way too many of them and all of the videos relate to different things, so when I want to find a specific video in my favorites it can get irritating. I wish there was a way to organize them better, maybe like making playlist sort of things. It'd be much easier to look for them. Thirdly, I hear creators talk about how some of the filters dramatically changes their face. I saw that even just recording a video without a filter does that. Like for example, it makes your face look a lot slimmer and tints your lips or changes your eye color without even using a filter. It can also smoothen your skin or make you lighter. Some of the creators can't even turn this off. I think this is an issue because 1, you can't turn these filters off. 2, it can make people feel worse about themselves. It tries to "fix" things that are completely normal about your appearance when none of it needs to be fixed. It can make people feel more insecure about themselves. Other than all of that, I like using Tiktok. There's just some things I don't like about it.
  • It’s amazing! But needs some updates


    By Musical Spy
    4/5 My tiktok experience has been the best! I’ve gotten no hate but it is still possible! So be aware, however it is a really fun app to make videos, react to videos, and find your favorite creators to follow! There are live streams that you get alerted when someone your following goes online. There is also a following page where you can scroll through videos of only the people you follow! There is also a for you page that allows you to fine new creators and great content! Time passes by QUICK with this app so be careful! Remember to stay healthy while on this app! You can also search for certain accounts to follow, certain hashtags, videos, users, sounds, and other things in the search bar! It is a super great and fun app that can also be educational, I seriously recommend getting it! 4/5 star rating! I have one recommendation for an update! Maybe adding a certain option to only update videos to a certain gender of viewers could be helpful! Like for example, videos about women puberty tips could be a helpful reason to make it only for women. Adding a video about this on a man/boy’s for you page is not exactly appealing to them. This can also be vice versa. Just a small recommendation for the viewers possible safety and entertainment!
  • Honestly helped my mental health


    By Lovermusic4ever
    This might sound silly but the FYP really is for YOU. Once I realized I was in a bad headspace and started working on myself as a person all together, I got on positive side of tiktok. So many down to earth people making content that not only helps me but others. So many comments “I needed this today” I know most people see tiktok as some dancing joking app but it genuinely has helped me feel less alone, gave me more ideas to further myself mentally, emotionally, spiritually. I feel more in touch with my true self than I ever have and I am honestly so grateful for this platform. The fact I am able to see every day people just like me talk about their vulnerable moments and that I am able to share content that I create. Yes it can be hard sometimes to get off the app because there is so much content that is wonderful to see but I believe there is an option to put a limit for yourself so you don’t spend too much of your day on here. I never thought I’d be writing a review for any app but I really do wanna put it out there this app is not just for jokes or dancing, although if you’re interested in that stuff I’m positive it’s on there for you. There’s something for everyone on Tiktok regardless of who you are.
  • Entertaining but Corrupt


    By Lexi Hale
    Honestly I like this platform a lot. If it weren't for a few things I would give it 5 stars... firstly, it's the newest of the popular social media platforms in America. It's a lot easier to get likes, follows, and views due to there not being as many creators. Because of this, going viral isn't as hard and it's a great tool for a lot of aspiring artists, musicians, comedians, and content creators which is why I love it so much. Also a great resource for people who need help or want to make extra money. However, I do not like the fact that TikTok chooses to shadow ban creators they don't personally agree with (it even made me unfollow some creators without me ever pressing the "unfollow" button and did not notify me at all), yet they let actual offensive content stay up (jokes/videos about rape/sexual assault, racism, misogyny, homophobia, etc). It's biased and unjust, I feel guilt sometimes for supporting this app. I might not be able to use it any longer if this continues. Also, you should be able to comment many more characters, it's limiting our ability to speak up for what's right. It's also very frustrating & annoying. Lastly, you really should be paying you're creators a lot more. Especially since you make so much on ads. They deserve a bigger cut of the money for the hard work they put in. I really do love Tiktok and I want to keep using it so please fix these issues... thanks.
  • Definitely A Great App But.....


    By Suazo Sofia
    Okay, here’s my review. This APP IS WONDERFUL. But there are some down sides to it. So, I deleted this app once but I wanted it back so I can use it on my spare time. So I just got it back and apparently I can’t get back into my old account. I saved all the data but the password doesn’t work. I’ve tried a bunch of times. It’s probably a bug. Anyways, my second “but” is that even if you don’t want an account and your trust trying out the app, don’t pull up the pop-up that says “SIGN UP” or “LOGIN IN”. I honestly don’t want an account for many reasons. Bullying, mean comments, inappropriate things, ext. At this time-period, you don’t have anywhere to be, or anything to do besides hang with your roommates (roommate), family members, or yourself. Trust me, it’s tough. But at this point social-media is our life now to figure out things and to learn more. (This probably has nothing to do but I’m trying to give ideas and my opinions). Sometimes I try to not open this app up because I don’t want to see the pop-up where it says to “SIGN IN” or to “LOGIN IN”. Please don’t get me wrong but this app is incredible because I use it on other devices. But this device I use daily needs this app! Thanks for letting me share my review. Hope it’s well enough for ideas. Stay safe! Happy Holidays!!! -Your fellow TikTok Fan.
  • Here’s a review !🥰


    By Here you are!
    I enjoy this app a lot and all the thing that you have added is wonderful! The only problem is when you report someone, it doesn’t do much. I think that you should be able to report someone and they would not be able to go on with doing the same thing they did, though thankfully- more than one person has to report the user, but indeed I have an idea you could add! The person should be active on their account at least 3 days so the same person does not report them with different accounts they are making. I suggest this app for many people that should be at least 10, basically double digits due to multiple swears that are allowed on this app. Maybe more edit options like, example; Camera swinging from on direction to the original video. This app is definitely absolutely perfect for people who enjoy making videos for others to see and enjoy! Though maybe make accounts get to the for you page more since its uncommon people search up a hashtag and find your video. Though I absolutely can’t stand this app, it’s amazing! And for another suggestion you should definitely add, make notifications for people messaging you and not allow spam if that is already added to the app, I suggest this app for you if you are looking forward to getting it! Enjoy 😊
  • Unfair enforcement of rules and notification suggestion


    By Mellthedude
    I’ve had tik tok for over a year now and have racked up a good amount of accounts I follow. I hardly ever get notifications for the accounts I want to stay in touch with. I suggest making push notifications more customizable as in being able to get all new video notifications from certain accounts. This would also help content creators as well because it would allow their content to be seen more. We are all struggling in this pandemic and I feel this would be a great help for smaller creators in the creator fund. Another problem is how you enforce your rules. I’ve seen countless high follower count, young, fit women showing off more than what should be shown, as there are children on this app, while smaller creators are having their videos taken down with showing less than what the more popular creators are showing off. It is completely unfair and unjust. On one of the pages I follow, one of their videos was taken down for nudity, with showing an appropriate one-piece swimsuit, while there are other videos with much more shown off are still up. If you are going to be strict about the rules at least apply them to ALL creators and not just the smaller creators please.
  • Great app but I have a suggestion/issue


    By Titanic lover!!!!
    I enjoy using TikTok I’m already at 4K and it is fun to use but the issue is and Ik it may be a need sometimes but I want unfollowing to not be a thing anymore it takes away a lot of confidence for me to be able to make videos and I’m being unfollowed for no reason even if I post or if I say I’m taking a break and when I say I’m taking a break bc somethings going on I’m being serious and people unfollowing me for it makes me feel like they don’t care that something’s going on.I am really tired of it and it makes me feel like I’m not good enough anymore and if I lose enough confidence I’ll end up not being able to make videos for other people anymore. I don’t even make offensive videos or anything I hate it when I reload my page my followers went down once or twice and there isn’t even a reason why I need to be unfollowed and it does honestly make me upset I really hope it’ll stop being a thing I like entertaining people but if they keep unfollowing it’ll take away confidence and there won’t be anything new on my page. :/ but otherwise fun to use I would recommend getting if you are bored but beware time flies by really fast when using so if you have somewhere to go I would be careful lol 😅.
  • more to tik tok


    By Kbonecutter
    i LOVE tik tok so much. i think i speak for most of the population when i say that basically all i do during quarantine is make and watch tik tok. however, there are a few suggestions that i have. my first would be that there should be a dislike button on videos. a lot of the time if there is a controversial video people have to like it to save it which gives that creator more clout. if you put a dislike button, it shows the creator how many people he/she truly upset. i understand why that could be a bad thing but maybe try it and take it away if it gets too bad? this next suggestion is one that i have thought of since i got the app. when i really like a video, want to recreate it, show it to my friends, watch later, etc. i put the video into my favorites. however, i now have so many videos in my favorites that i can’t even find the video i need at the time. for this issue, i wish so deeply that the favorites section had different folders that you could name. this way, when you go to put the video in your favorites it asks which folder, you could name a folder, watch later, dances, show to people, etc. tik tok is a great app but please please please take my last idea into consideration.
  • from frick yeah to ehhh


    By bbgotemonetime
    I was enjoying Tik Tok until any and every video I posted started getting reported. wasn't their fault for the reports but it is a concern how easy it is to get shadow banned from the community. Tik Tok needs to improve this feature. Make it so in order to get the video taken down it has to be a VALID reason!!! Unfortunately there are hateful people in our world that don't want to see others shine so they will just wait for someone to post then report the video. Again thats not TikTok's fault but I just feel the report should be reviewed before the ban of a video. I had a video (with Tik Tok sounds) get shadowbanned at 1 play. This is outrageous. I speak my mind with no curse words, and still get shadow banned. I think the one who reports needs to get reviewed and there should be a limit to their reports. There should be a watch on how many times a profile has reported the same page. There should also be a punishment/ban for false reporting. Its getting out of hand and I'm just going to rid of posting on TikTok for now... However Im going to finesse your video editing system and post somewhere else because "I'm addicted to finessin" lol I also think the feeds should be seperated by age like 17 & under, and 18+. But yeah please fix the report system. I almost lit up a blunt last night to get in touch and let my spirit handle your staff. If someone gets reported over and over by the same group of people its obviously hate. *hits blunt* you made me mad.
