TIKTOKERS don’t mess around when it comes to uploading their clips to keep up with the algorithm.
But sometimes there are glitches in the system which stall the process. So, what are they and what can you do about it?
Why are my videos not posting to TikTok?
There are a number of reasons why your video may not be posting to TikTok.
A poor internet connection is one of the most common reasons, meaning you should confirm the status of this first.
Try disconnecting and restarting your Wi-Fi connection, or use your mobile data to post the footage.
However, sometimes its TikTok itself which is having issues.
If the app‘s servers malfunctioned, users are unable to upload – and there isn’t anything you can do until its fixed.
You can check the website Down Detector to see if there are any issues being reported by other users.
If you have trouble sharing your TikTok, the app could just also be experiencing a random glitch.
Your content creating may have overwhelmed the system, so the best thing to do is restart the app.
Relaunch it after you have exited and try to upload your video again.
But if you’re still having technical trouble, double check you are using the latest version of the app that banishes bugs.
How do I post a video to TikTok?
If you want to join in on the fun and share some clips on the video-sharing app, just follow these simple instructions.
First, tap the ‘+’ icon in the bottom center of the screen.
You may want to record video using the TikTok camera, or you can upload content from your device’s photo library.
Once you have filmed, its then time to edit the post to make it sleek and interesting for viewers.
Users can play around with the footage, adding sounds, effects, filters and other camera tools to jazz it up.
Then simply click ‘Next’ in the bottom right of the screen, where you can then add your caption and hashtags.
After making some last minute tweaks, you can then hit the ‘Post’ button, which will publish your TikTok to the app.
Who can see my TikTok videos?
You have the power to control what social media users see on your TikTok profile.
To keep your content just for a strict few people, you could make your account private so you have to approve new followers.
Although this ruins your chances of becoming a viral sensation, its a small price to pay for your preferences.
You can explore the ‘Settings’ section to adopt these measures to fit your desired experience on the app.
For example, select who you want to see your videos since your account is private.
Choose from,’Followers’, ‘Followers that follow you back’ or ‘Only Me’.
Alternatively, click on the tab ‘Who Can View This Video’ while uploading the clip, and choose the option of ‘Private”.
Users can even turn on their ‘Profile View History’ to see who has visited their page in the last 30 days.
