How do you tag someone on TikTok?
TikTok, formerly known as Musical.ly, is an app that allows users to create short videos (15 seconds to 10 minutes) and share them with their friends and followers on the platform. It is rapidly growing in popularity, and even other social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat, Twitter, and Instagram have adopted TikTok’s idea of sharing short videos. When you upload a video to TikTok, your followers will see it on their feeds as long as they are logged into the app or website.
The desire to tag someone in a post can have different motives. You could tag that person because they’re in your video; you got the idea for your video from that other user or from both. Anyway, tagging is a fairly simple procedure. Tags on TikTok are divided into two categories, tags in posts and comments.
