How does TikTok repost work: Things to know
The purpose of the TikTok reposting function is to allow users to share their favorite content with their followers and the shared content gets sort-of organically recommended to the mutual follows.
If you are familiar with social media platforms like Twitter or Facebook, you might have some understanding of how well its users utilize the repost feature to share the content that they like with their followers or the public. The option to repost instantly acts as a tool to connect a creator with users far outside and beyond their followers, as each video or content reposted by an individual follower has the potential to reach their own with the followers or related community. Of course, it all depends on privacy settings, but for the most part, most posts shared by users reach all their friends even if they are hidden from the profile wall for public view.
As a video-sharing platform with its root deeply embedded in content sharing and global discovery, why hasn’t TikTok introduced a similar feature to its arsenal?
It is likely that it wasn’t not considered, but because of the lurking threat of power abuse involved that has likely kept the repost feature from making its way over until now. TikTok’s “for you” page recommendations are brought to each user after grinding through the sieve of the algorithm that only allows ‘related’ or interesting content to users. So, if you follow a few popular creators who form a pact to support each other by reposting each other’s content, imagine what kind of mess your FYP would fall into?
However, the repost feature on TikTok seems to have found a workaround for this. Because, even if you follow some influential TikToker, their reposts won’t show up on your feed unless they follow you as well. Hence, manipulation to cheat the algorithm is expected to be less with such a root formula guiding the repost function.
However, reposting is also a necessary function expected by users as we often come across videos that we wish to share with someone else. Previously, the most used method was to share the link of a video with others in DMs. There is the second category of users who often download other creators’ content and upload it as their own. However, reposting someone else’s original content is highly frowned upon on TikTok. Hence, the repost feature is anticipated to remedy the situation at hand and allow for easy video sharing and recommendations.
The videos you repost get recommended only to those with whom you share a ‘mutual following’ connection on TikTok. Since the TikTok algorithm also considers the interests of related accounts to curate a user’s “For You” page, videos recommended as reposts are expected to add an advantage to its reaching a bigger audience through such a network.
