Social networks have become an integral part of our lives. Especially the demand for them increased during periods of self-isolation. Each network has its own peculiarity, but it is Tik Tok that gives a lot of pleasant emotions, cheers up and launches challenges around the world. So that you do not waste time looking for content and bloggers, we suggest that you familiarize yourself with the topic “Interesting in Tik Tok“.
How to find the “Interesting” section
Having understood this section, using Tik Tok will be a real pleasure. The developers have tried to do everything possible for this. When you understand how the algorithm works, your news feed will be filled with news based only on your preferences, and you will not spend the slightest effort for this.
To search for a section, you need to launch the application, then lower your eyes to the lower left corner. The “Highlights” section will look like a magnifying glass. You need to click on it, and everything interesting for you will open before you.
What’s in the “Interesting” section
In this section, there are videos that get into the top or those that are gaining views and reposts well. For example, you can stumble upon a blogger’s video with 1.8 million views, and the next one will pop up with 40 thousand views, but will have dozens of reposts. Also in this section, popular challenges, Tik Tok news, used by bloggers, and more are highlighted.
By viewing this section, you can choose the right content for yourself and subscribe to your favorite authors.
How to set up a section
Unfortunately, the creators of Tik Tok did not provide for user customization of the section. In order to watch a certain circle of authors, you need to subscribe to them. Otherwise, you can influence only your actions. To do this, when watching an interesting video, you need to like or repost it. In this case, the algorithm will mark your actions and will show only similar ones in the future.
How to prevent certain videos from showing in the feed
Each of us has our own preferences, and sometimes they coincide. But sometimes it happens that the fantasy of bloggers goes beyond what is reasonable and they shoot something that spoils not only the mood, but also the impression of the site itself.
To prevent this from happening, the developers of the social network have come up with a trick that can help you a lot.
In order to hide the video and limit the display of similar ones, you need to make a couple of clicks:
- Select the desired video.
- Next, hold it down for a few seconds.
- Next, a window will appear and offer several options: “Save video“, “To favorites“, “Not interested “, “Complaint“.
- You need to select “Not interested“
If you are a registered user, you can still blacklist this author. Read more about this in our article “Emergency in Tik Tok“.
Accidentally clicked “Not interested”
If, while watching a video, you wanted to add it to your favorites, but accidentally clicked “Not interested“, there will be no way to fix the situation. It will save only if you are subscribed to the author or remember his nickname (then you can find it in a search engine). If there was no subscription, all that remains is to mark and share similar videos with friends, then perhaps the video of this author will appear in your feed.
When viewing content on TikTok, the user can choose what will be displayed and offered by their actions. Application algorithms are very convenient for users, although sometimes I would like something like manual settings.
