An <em>algorithm</em> is a calculation that search engines and social media platforms use to rank content — in the case of TikTok, to rank videos and customize \"For You\" page results.\r\n\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tldr\">Don't have time to read the entire article?\r\n<a href=\"#summary\" data-analytics-id=\"product-test-2\">Jump to the quick read summary.</a></p>\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_299040\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-299040\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-video-making-adobeStock_566940378.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"630\" height=\"354\" /> ©ChayTee / Adobe Stock[/caption]\r\n\r\nThe algorithm is basically the “secret sauce” of how TikTok decides what videos to show each user. If you understand the basics of TikTok’s algorithm, you can understand how to create content that shows up more often on the For You pages of people who don’t follow you. Knowing this secret sauce gives you the ability to gain more followers and views, and hopefully, go viral on TikTok.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips warning\">A disclaimer: The actual TikTok algorithm — the inner workings of how TikTok surfaces content on the For You page — is a secret. It also changes frequently, and what might work today may not work tomorrow, so test your content often. That said, I and other creators have discovered basic principles that seem to result in more followers and views. The tips I share here are based on what I’ve found to be effective.</p>\r\nBy the way, are you wondering: what is considered viral on TikTok? Opinions definitely vary. If you search the question \"how many views is viral on TikTok,\" you'll see a range of answers, but it appears that most people believe a video must garner between 250,000 and 1 million views to be considered viral.\r\n\r\nHere are a few principles to remember as you create videos. These could help make your videos more likely to show up on the For You page (the first screen people see when they go to TikTok):\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"\"><strong>Focus on engagement first.</strong> Remember, on TikTok, content is king, but engagement is queen and wears the pants. Focus on engagement first. A video that moves its audience to take action — like, comment, duet, or stitch — will see <em>far</em> greater views and new followers than a well-produced video that took hours to create.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">I have almost 15 years’ experience creating content for social media — trust me, this is true! You want your audience to feel something quickly — within the first five seconds of your video, if you can manage it. They hear a voice saying, “I just have to say something!” and then leave a comment, create a stitch, or duet your video. Success! These are the keys for how to blow up on TikTok. This platform, and most social media platforms, favor lots of engagement on videos, especially when users are willing to take the time to have a conversation. This is why even controversial content tends to see more views.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Make your content king. </strong>In the competition to get viral on TikTok, a well-produced, well-lit video with good sound and good editing has the clear advantage over poorly produced videos — a well-done video definitely gains some level of favor in the TikTok algorithm.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Find out what's trending. </strong>You probably discovered TikTok because someone close to you — a child, niece, nephew, or friend — shared a funny video. These days, a lot of Internet trends begin on TikTok. Much of TikTok culture centers around one large, connected community, all talking about the same things. The TikTok algorithm highly favors content that remains a part of this “town gossip.”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Want to double your video views? Find a popular TikTok influencer who’s participating in a popular trend, and duet or stitch that person's content with your own twist on the conversation.</p>\r\nEven if the creator doesn’t notice you, TikTok’s algorithm tends to favor videos that duet or stitch the videos of popular creators. When I do this in my videos, such as the one in the figure below, I always see significantly more views, especially when I’m creative with my response.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297443\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"300\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297443\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/duetting-tiktok-videos.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot on cell phone showing Jesse Stay on TikTok\" width=\"300\" height=\"602\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Duetting my popular videos on @tiktokfordummies generates more views because that account has more followers.[/caption]\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Attention spans are short! Focus your content.</strong> As you're thinking about how to make your TikTok go viral, remember that although engagement trumps content and length, TikTok’s For You page algorithm tends to favor content that is short. People on TikTok have short attention spans.In addition, TikTok favors videos where most of the viewers watch the entire video.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Unless I'm doing something to engage my audience, such as a duet or stitch, I keep my content shorter than 15 seconds. This makes it more likely that my viewers will watch the entire video, giving an added bump to the video's chances of being seen on the For You page of potential followers, and maybe even going viral on TikTok.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Because TikTok gives a boost to videos that get more viewers to watch to the end, consider splitting a long video into segments. Make sure each segment starts with a new hook to keep the viewer interested. Watch your numbers! TikTok is constantly changing, and what works for me and other accounts on TikTok today might work differently for you later.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Time your messages carefully.</strong> When you post a video, TikTok looks at the video's content, description, hashtags, sounds, and other details, and determines its ideal audience. First TikTok shares the video with a small, targeted audience. If they respond well, it increases the audience — and continues to do so as long as viewers react favorably.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\"\">However, TikTok’s algorithm needs time to get your video to that full audience. If you post a new video targeting the same audience as the last-published video too quickly, it confuses the algorithm. Your original video will not be able to make it to as many people as it could have. I’ve found no established guidelines on how soon is too soon to post, but pay attention to this issue as you publish videos and see what works best.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Consistency is your key to the kingdom.</strong> If you haven’t done so already, think about what you want your TikTok account to be about. What goals do you want to accomplish with it? What topics do you want to focus on? Who’s your target audience? Take some time to answer those questions.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Next, make sure every video you create matches the answers to those questions. If you keep all your content consistent, TikTok knows immediately what audiences to send your content to, and you’re more likely to see higher growth more quickly. Maintaining consistency is keeping a promise to your audience: They come to you looking for specific content, and you deliver it.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Identifying trending content</h2>\r\nA great way to gain followers and increase video views on TikTok is by understanding what content is trending. In this section, I discuss finding trends by browsing the discover page and using the search function.\r\n<h3>Check the discover page</h3>\r\nTo access the discover page, shown in the figure below, tap Discover in the main navigation. Scroll through the main discover page to see what’s currently trending, and then tap the Sounds and Hashtags tabs to explore those pages further and get new inspiration.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_298990\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"310\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-298990\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-discover-page.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot of TikTok's discover page\" width=\"310\" height=\"630\" /> ©TikTok<br />The discover page[/caption]\r\n\r\nSwipe the top banner to see trending accounts, sounds, themes, and hashtags. These are things TikTok wants you to see, so TikTok will favor your videos on the For You page if you use them in your content.\r\n\r\nTap a topic on the banner to see a screen with that topic, such as the #CarTikTok page shown in Figure 8-3, left, which includes videos, sounds, hashtags, and a list of the top-viewed videos using the topic. Sometimes topic pages are just a landing page TikTok has designed with a partner or an advertiser.\r\n\r\nEach topic page will be different, designed to show off the things TikTok wants its users to consider in their videos. Explore these videos, sounds, or hashtags on each topic page and look for common themes or elements, such as a dance, a song, or an activity.\r\n\r\nIf the topic you’re exploring contains a trending hashtag, consider adding it to your description. Or you could create a video matching what each video is discussing but in your own way. Tap the back icon (<) to return to the discover page.\r\n\r\nScroll down the discover page to see what’s hot. Tap a video or two to see any common themes, and consider integrating those elements into your own videos. Tap a sound or hashtag to see a list of videos using that sound or hashtag.\r\n\r\nWhen you tap a trending sound, you can tap the Use This Sound button (see the left-side image in the figure below) to immediately start recording a video using that sound. If you tap a trending hashtag, tap the record button (see the right-side image in the figure below) and any effects, sounds, and other elements associated with that hashtag automatically load into a new recording screen for you.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_298988\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-298988\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-sound-record-buttons.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing TikTok's Use This Sound and record buttons\" width=\"630\" height=\"621\" /> ©TikTok<br />You can use trending sounds and hashtags easily in your own videos.[/caption]\r\n\r\nI typically sift through all the elements on the discover page briefly before publishing a video to be sure I’m using the latest and greatest hashtags, sounds, and themes. That way, I'm more likely to see additional views.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">The discover page changes constantly. The layout I discuss in this chapter may change by the time you read this. However, the principles of exploring the trending sounds, hashtags, and topics remain the same.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Finding content through search</h2>\r\nThe discover page sports a search box at the top, which you can use to find content using topics you’re interested in, as well as hashtags, other users, and sounds. To search for something, go to the discover page and follow these steps:\r\n<ol>\r\n \t<li><strong> Tap the search field. </strong>A list appears showing your recent searches. If this is your first time searching, the list will be empty.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong> Type what you want to search for and then tap the Search button that appears on your device's keyboard. </strong>You can enter a hashtag, name, username, song name, name of an effect, or keyword. A search results page appears, displaying the default Top tab, with results organized by the top videos, hashtags, and users that TikTok determines are the most relevant to your search.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong> Tap a video to watch it. </strong>Check out the Top tab if you’re trying to get inspiration for videos on a particular topic. If you tap the Sounds or Hashtags tab, you see a screen similar to the one in the figure above.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong> Tap another tab (Users, Videos, Sounds, or Hashtags) to see a new search view, organized for that category. </strong>The categories are self-explanatory — no surprises here!</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>To return to the discover page, tap the back icon (<) in the upper-left corner.</strong></li>\r\n</ol>\r\nYou can find trending videos, memes, sounds, and hashtags on your For You and Following pages. What catches your attention? When I see videos on either page that spark a fun idea, I mark them as favorites, so I can sift through them later. To mark a video as a favorite, long-press the video and tap Add to Favorites.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Grabbing your viewers’ attention</h2>\r\nWith an understanding of the TikTok algorithm and a knowledge of the type of content that's trending, you’re ready to start creating videos that engage your audience! If your goal is to make a viral TikTok video, here are a few ideas (some from a few of my favorite popular TikTokers) that are sure to get your audience talking:\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Stay positive</h2>\r\nTikTok user <a href=\"//www.tiktok.com/@aaronhanania\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Aaron Hanania</a>, shown in the figure below, built an audience of tens of thousands by maintaining a message of positivity for his audience. In a message to me, he wrote:\r\n\r\nPositivity has allowed me to grow on TikTok because it’s unique to me. There are very few other influencers who not only spread positivity, but truly engage and get to know their audience. When someone joins my TikTok Live, I recognize their names; I remember things they share. And I think that’s important.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_298989\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"304\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-298989\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-aaron-hanania.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing Aaron Hanania on TikTok\" width=\"304\" height=\"630\" /> ©Aaron Hanania[/caption]\r\n<h2 id=\"tab5\" >Keep your content clean</h2>\r\nCertain types of content will get your content deleted or your account banned. Depictions of nudity, sexual content (even implied), firearms, and other forbidden topics outlined in TikTok’s community guidelines are not allowed.\r\n\r\nKnow your audience. Although TikTok is full of risqué content, I’ve found that content that skirts the community guidelines (containing swear words and drug references) or is generally PG-13 (or above) tends to get fewer viewers. Exceptions to this rule exist, and you’ll have a better response if your audience expects this type of content. However, I recommend playing it safe when you can.\r\n\r\nAlthough you can invoke emotion, as I discuss next, or incite controversy, you may reach a larger audience by avoiding offense in the first place. As always, test to see what works best. No judgement here — I’m all about the data and what shows results!\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Some creators edit out curse words in descriptions, captions, and the text on their videos but still curse <em>in</em> the videos. If this is your desired type of content and your audience will respond well, consider this approach. TikTok's algorithm tends to give greater weight to onscreen text than audio.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab6\" >Invoke emotion</h2>\r\nEmotion — whether it's positive or negative, and whether you are showing humor, anger, sadness, or something else — makes people want to respond. When people <em>feel</em> something during a video, they want to do something with that feeling. Your goal in each video should be to invoke emotion in your audience.\r\n\r\n<p id=\"summary\">That’s why positivity is so important: It creates an emotion, in this case something positive or happy in the mind of the viewer. And that emotion makes them to want to do something with that feeling, such as share your video. However, controversy can also invoke emotion. TikTok users are highly opinionated, and everyone wants to share theirs!</p>\r\n\r\n<div class=\"summary-container\" data-testid=\"summarySection\">\r\n<div class=\"wrapper\">\r\n<div class=\"image-block\" data-testid=\"imageBlock\"></div>\r\n<div class=\"details-block\">\r\n<h2 id=\"tab7\" >Quick Read Summary</h2>\r\nTo go viral on TikTok, understanding the platform's algorithm is crucial. The TikTok algorithm determines what content appears on users' \"For You\" pages. While the exact workings of the algorithm are secret and change frequently, these principles have proven effective:\r\n<ul class=\"summary-list\">\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Focus on engagement:</strong> Engagement is key. Videos that prompt actions like likes, comments, duets, or stitches tend to get more views and followers. Create content that grabs viewers' attention within the first few seconds.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Quality matters:</strong> Well-produced, well-lit, and well-edited videos have an advantage. Good production quality can improve your standing in the algorithm.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Follow trends:</strong> TikTok trends are ever-evolving. Participate in popular trends, duet or stitch videos with popular creators, or add your own twist to trending topics. This can boost your visibility.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Short and sweet:</strong> Keep your content short, typically under 15 seconds. Short videos are favored, and TikTok rewards videos that retain viewers until the end.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Timing matters:</strong> Be mindful of how quickly you post new videos targeting the same audience. Rapid posting can confuse the algorithm.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Consistency is key:</strong> Make sure your content aligns with your account's theme and audience. Consistency helps TikTok understand who to show your content to.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Use the Discover page on TikTok:</strong> On the Discover page, you can explore trending sounds, hashtags, and themes; consider incorporating them into your videos. Keep in mind that the Discover page is constantly changing.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Use the search function:</strong> You can search to find trending content. Look for hashtags, users, sounds, or keywords, and explore the top results.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Invoke emotion:</strong> When creating content, aim to grab viewers' attention by invoking emotions, whether positive or negative. Positivity can build a loyal audience, while controversy can also spark engagement.</p></li>\r\n</ul>\r\nUltimately, there is no one-size-fits-all formula for going viral on TikTok, as the algorithm is ever-changing. Experiment with different strategies, stay updated on trends, and focus on creating engaging content to increase your chances of TikTok success.\r\n\r\nHungry for more?

Take some time to answer those questions.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Next, make sure every video you create matches the answers to those questions. If you keep all your content consistent, TikTok knows immediately what audiences to send your content to, and you’re more likely to see higher growth more quickly. Maintaining consistency is keeping a promise to your audience: They come to you looking for specific content, and you deliver it.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Identifying trending content</h2>\r\nA great way to gain followers and increase video views on TikTok is by understanding what content is trending. In this section, I discuss finding trends by browsing the discover page and using the search function.\r\n<h3>Check the discover page</h3>\r\nTo access the discover page, shown in the figure below, tap Discover in the main navigation. Scroll through the main discover page to see what’s currently trending, and then tap the Sounds and Hashtags tabs to explore those pages further and get new inspiration.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_298990\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"310\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-298990\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-discover-page.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot of TikTok's discover page\" width=\"310\" height=\"630\" /> ©TikTok<br />The discover page[/caption]\r\n\r\nSwipe the top banner to see trending accounts, sounds, themes, and hashtags. These are things TikTok wants you to see, so TikTok will favor your videos on the For You page if you use them in your content.\r\n\r\nTap a topic on the banner to see a screen with that topic, such as the #CarTikTok page shown in Figure 8-3, left, which includes videos, sounds, hashtags, and a list of the top-viewed videos using the topic. Sometimes topic pages are just a landing page TikTok has designed with a partner or an advertiser.\r\n\r\nEach topic page will be different, designed to show off the things TikTok wants its users to consider in their videos. Explore these videos, sounds, or hashtags on each topic page and look for common themes or elements, such as a dance, a song, or an activity.\r\n\r\nIf the topic you’re exploring contains a trending hashtag, consider adding it to your description. Or you could create a video matching what each video is discussing but in your own way. Tap the back icon (<) to return to the discover page.\r\n\r\nScroll down the discover page to see what’s hot. Tap a video or two to see any common themes, and consider integrating those elements into your own videos. Tap a sound or hashtag to see a list of videos using that sound or hashtag.\r\n\r\nWhen you tap a trending sound, you can tap the Use This Sound button (see the left-side image in the figure below) to immediately start recording a video using that sound. If you tap a trending hashtag, tap the record button (see the right-side image in the figure below) and any effects, sounds, and other elements associated with that hashtag automatically load into a new recording screen for you.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_298988\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-298988\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-sound-record-buttons.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing TikTok's Use This Sound and record buttons\" width=\"630\" height=\"621\" /> ©TikTok<br />You can use trending sounds and hashtags easily in your own videos.[/caption]\r\n\r\nI typically sift through all the elements on the discover page briefly before publishing a video to be sure I’m using the latest and greatest hashtags, sounds, and themes. That way, I'm more likely to see additional views.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">The discover page changes constantly. The layout I discuss in this chapter may change by the time you read this. However, the principles of exploring the trending sounds, hashtags, and topics remain the same.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Finding content through search</h2>\r\nThe discover page sports a search box at the top, which you can use to find content using topics you’re interested in, as well as hashtags, other users, and sounds. To search for something, go to the discover page and follow these steps:\r\n<ol>\r\n \t<li><strong> Tap the search field. </strong>A list appears showing your recent searches. If this is your first time searching, the list will be empty.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong> Type what you want to search for and then tap the Search button that appears on your device's keyboard. </strong>You can enter a hashtag, name, username, song name, name of an effect, or keyword. A search results page appears, displaying the default Top tab, with results organized by the top videos, hashtags, and users that TikTok determines are the most relevant to your search.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong> Tap a video to watch it. </strong>Check out the Top tab if you’re trying to get inspiration for videos on a particular topic. If you tap the Sounds or Hashtags tab, you see a screen similar to the one in the figure above.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong> Tap another tab (Users, Videos, Sounds, or Hashtags) to see a new search view, organized for that category. </strong>The categories are self-explanatory — no surprises here!</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>To return to the discover page, tap the back icon (<) in the upper-left corner.</strong></li>\r\n</ol>\r\nYou can find trending videos, memes, sounds, and hashtags on your For You and Following pages. What catches your attention? When I see videos on either page that spark a fun idea, I mark them as favorites, so I can sift through them later. To mark a video as a favorite, long-press the video and tap Add to Favorites.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Grabbing your viewers’ attention</h2>\r\nWith an understanding of the TikTok algorithm and a knowledge of the type of content that's trending, you’re ready to start creating videos that engage your audience! If your goal is to make a viral TikTok video, here are a few ideas (some from a few of my favorite popular TikTokers) that are sure to get your audience talking:\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Stay positive</h2>\r\nTikTok user <a href=\"//www.tiktok.com/@aaronhanania\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Aaron Hanania</a>, shown in the figure below, built an audience of tens of thousands by maintaining a message of positivity for his audience. In a message to me, he wrote:\r\n\r\nPositivity has allowed me to grow on TikTok because it’s unique to me. There are very few other influencers who not only spread positivity, but truly engage and get to know their audience. When someone joins my TikTok Live, I recognize their names; I remember things they share. And I think that’s important.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_298989\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"304\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-298989\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-aaron-hanania.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing Aaron Hanania on TikTok\" width=\"304\" height=\"630\" /> ©Aaron Hanania[/caption]\r\n<h2 id=\"tab5\" >Keep your content clean</h2>\r\nCertain types of content will get your content deleted or your account banned. Depictions of nudity, sexual content (even implied), firearms, and other forbidden topics outlined in TikTok’s community guidelines are not allowed.\r\n\r\nKnow your audience. Although TikTok is full of risqué content, I’ve found that content that skirts the community guidelines (containing swear words and drug references) or is generally PG-13 (or above) tends to get fewer viewers. Exceptions to this rule exist, and you’ll have a better response if your audience expects this type of content. However, I recommend playing it safe when you can.\r\n\r\nAlthough you can invoke emotion, as I discuss next, or incite controversy, you may reach a larger audience by avoiding offense in the first place. As always, test to see what works best. No judgement here — I’m all about the data and what shows results!\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Some creators edit out curse words in descriptions, captions, and the text on their videos but still curse <em>in</em> the videos. If this is your desired type of content and your audience will respond well, consider this approach. TikTok's algorithm tends to give greater weight to onscreen text than audio.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab6\" >Invoke emotion</h2>\r\nEmotion — whether it's positive or negative, and whether you are showing humor, anger, sadness, or something else — makes people want to respond. When people <em>feel</em> something during a video, they want to do something with that feeling. Your goal in each video should be to invoke emotion in your audience.\r\n\r\n<p id=\"summary\">That’s why positivity is so important: It creates an emotion, in this case something positive or happy in the mind of the viewer. And that emotion makes them to want to do something with that feeling, such as share your video. However, controversy can also invoke emotion. TikTok users are highly opinionated, and everyone wants to share theirs!</p>\r\n\r\n<div class=\"summary-container\" data-testid=\"summarySection\">\r\n<div class=\"wrapper\">\r\n<div class=\"image-block\" data-testid=\"imageBlock\"></div>\r\n<div class=\"details-block\">\r\n<h2 id=\"tab7\" >Quick Read Summary</h2>\r\nTo go viral on TikTok, understanding the platform's algorithm is crucial. The TikTok algorithm determines what content appears on users' \"For You\" pages. While the exact workings of the algorithm are secret and change frequently, these principles have proven effective:\r\n<ul class=\"summary-list\">\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Focus on engagement:</strong> Engagement is key. Videos that prompt actions like likes, comments, duets, or stitches tend to get more views and followers. Create content that grabs viewers' attention within the first few seconds.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Quality matters:</strong> Well-produced, well-lit, and well-edited videos have an advantage. Good production quality can improve your standing in the algorithm.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Follow trends:</strong> TikTok trends are ever-evolving. Participate in popular trends, duet or stitch videos with popular creators, or add your own twist to trending topics. This can boost your visibility.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Short and sweet:</strong> Keep your content short, typically under 15 seconds. Short videos are favored, and TikTok rewards videos that retain viewers until the end.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Timing matters:</strong> Be mindful of how quickly you post new videos targeting the same audience. Rapid posting can confuse the algorithm.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Consistency is key:</strong> Make sure your content aligns with your account's theme and audience. Consistency helps TikTok understand who to show your content to.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Use the Discover page on TikTok:</strong> On the Discover page, you can explore trending sounds, hashtags, and themes; consider incorporating them into your videos. Keep in mind that the Discover page is constantly changing.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Use the search function:</strong> You can search to find trending content. Look for hashtags, users, sounds, or keywords, and explore the top results.</p></li>\r\n \t<li><p><strong>Invoke emotion:</strong> When creating content, aim to grab viewers' attention by invoking emotions, whether positive or negative. Positivity can build a loyal audience, while controversy can also spark engagement.</p></li>\r\n</ul>\r\nUltimately, there is no one-size-fits-all formula for going viral on TikTok, as the algorithm is ever-changing. Experiment with different strategies, stay updated on trends, and focus on creating engaging content to increase your chances of TikTok success.\r\n\r\nHungry for more?

Each server in the network has its own personality — and some servers pride themselves in having no particular personality. Every server is free to join, although some may be closed to new accounts or may require that you get on a waiting list.\r\n\r\nThe most difficult part of getting a Mastodon account is choosing which server to join. Fortunately, there's a <a href=\"//joinmastodon.org/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Mastodon web page</a> (shown in the image below) to help you sort through your options.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297374\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"wp-image-297374 size-full\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/join-mastodon-screen.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing the Join Mastodon page.\" width=\"630\" height=\"303\" /> ©Mastodon<br />Your first stop should be joinmastodon.org.[/caption]\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">You can sign up for Mastodon using the app or the website. However, signing up on the website — on your desktop, laptop, tablet, or phone — is easier than signing up with the app.</p>\r\nYour very first step in getting Mastodon is to go to the <a href=\"//joinmastodon.org/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Join Mastodon page</a>. Then, click the \"Get the App\" link to use the app or click \"Create Account\" to use your web browser. Both the website and the app are free, and creating your account on one allows you to use all the features of both.\r\n\r\nIf you click \"Get the App,\" you'll be taken to a screen where you can choose to go to the Apple App Store (to download the iPhone app) or to Google Play (to download the Android app). Once you get to the app store, download and install the Mastodon app as you would with any app.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Because Mastodon is based on a free and open standard, there are many apps to choose from to use Mastodon. Start with the official one, which is called Mastodon.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Browsing your options</h2>\r\nWhen you visit the Join Mastodon page and click the \"Create Account\" button, you'll be taken to the Servers page, which is shown below.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297375\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297375\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/mastodon-servers-screen.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing the Mastodon Servers page.\" width=\"630\" height=\"303\" /> ©Mastodon<br />Checking out the servers[/caption]\r\n\r\nMany more Mastodon servers than the ones you see when you scroll down this page are available. However, the servers on joinmastodon.org follow certain rules known as the Mastodon Server Covenant, which is an agreement by the server's owner to work to keep the server free of hate speech, to back up their data daily, to have a person on call to deal with technical issues with the server, and to give users of the server at least three months’ notice before shutting down the server.\r\n\r\nBecause these servers have agreed to the Server Covenant, they are seen as trustworthy, stable, and safe places to serve as your home in the Mastodon universe.\r\n\r\nAlthough you can't go wrong with any of the instances listed on the servers page, some will be a better fit for you than others — and that's what makes Mastodon so cool!\r\n\r\nSpend some time browsing through the different servers listed here. Note that you have several options for filtering the results — including by geographical region and topic (listed on the left side of the screen) and by legal structure, sign-up speed, and language (selected from drop-down lists at the top), as shown below.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297373\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297373\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/mastodon-server-descriptions.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing the Mastodon server descriptions page.\" width=\"630\" height=\"323\" /> ©Mastodon<br />Reading the server descriptions[/caption]\r\n\r\nOnce you've found a server or two that sound like places where you'd like to hang out and call your home base, the first potentially make-or-break characteristic of the server is the <em>sign-up speed,</em> which is how fast it will take for you to get an account.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Understanding sign-up speed</h2>\r\nWhen you browse the list of servers, you'll see two types of buttons: \"Apply for an Account\" button and \"Create Account.\" The \"Create Account\" button means that the server has instant signup: You can have a new account on that server in the amount of time it takes for you to choose a username and a password.\r\n\r\nServers with an \"Apply for an Account\" button require that new accounts be approved by an administrator. This approval may take only a few minutes or a day. If you're super-excited to start using Mastodon, go with one of the servers that have the blue \"Create Account\" button.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Don't worry too much about picking the perfect server. Choosing a server doesn't have to be permanent. You can move your account (and all of your followers!) to another server easily after you sign up.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Reading the rules</h2>\r\nRegardless of whether you choose to apply for an account or go with a server that has instant account creation, check out the rules of your chosen server before you commit. To see a server's rules, first click the \"Create Account\" or \"Apply for an Account\" button to go to the server.\r\n\r\nOnce on the server, you'll see a description of the server on the left, with the name of the server administrator and the number of users. Below the server information, click \"Learn More\" to read more about the server, including its code of conduct, which describes the guidelines for how users are expected to behave while using the server.\r\n\r\nRather than having a complicated set of rules that try to make the greatest number of people happy and end up pleasing no one (such as what centralized platforms like Twitter and Facebook must do), each Mastodon server sets specific rules and the conduct expected from users.\r\n\r\nIf you don't like the code of conduct on one server, check out other servers until you find one with a code of conduct more in keeping with your beliefs.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Previewing a server</h2>\r\nWhen you sign up using a web browser, many of the servers listed at joinmastodon.org allow you to browse the content on the server before joining. If you click to the server and see posts, rather than immediately seeing a sign-up or login page, you've come to one of these.\r\n\r\nTo see the content posted by the local users of the server, click the \"Local\" link on the right side of the page. The posts listed under \"Local\" are by people who would be your neighbors if you were to join this server. Are they talking about things you're interested in? If so, this may be the perfect server for you!\r\n<h2 id=\"tab5\" >Meeting the admin</h2>\r\nAnother way to choose a server is to find out more about the person running it. Every server prominently displays the person in charge of keeping the server running and enforcing the server's rules. Click their profile from the server's home page or from the server's \"About\" page to read more about them and to see the things they're interested in and what they post.\r\n\r\nOn Mastodon, the admin sets the tone for the server. If the admin seems like someone you'd like to hang out with, that's a good indication that you've found a home.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab6\" >Seeing why smaller is better</h2>\r\nA server might have just a handful of members to many thousands. Servers with a smaller number of users are vital to keeping the entire universe interesting and avoiding a monoculture. Smaller servers also tend to have stronger personalities than larger servers. And smaller servers are often less prone to slowing down because they're less likely to get a lot of traffic.\r\n\r\nBecause every server allows access to the other servers, you have nothing to lose by going with a smaller one. In the same way that you're more likely to make friends in a small community group versus an international club with millions of members, joining a smaller Mastodon server makes you a bigger fish because the pond is smaller.","description":"<figure style=\"margin: 0;\"><figcaption style=\"margin-bottom: 10px;\">Listen to the article:</figcaption><audio src=\"/wp-content/uploads/how-to-pick-mastodon-server.mp3\" controls=\"controls\"><a href=\"/wp-content/uploads/how-to-pick-mastodon-server.mp3\"><span data-mce-type=\"bookmark\" style=\"display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;\" class=\"mce_SELRES_start\"></span>Download audio</a></audio></figure>\r\nMastodon is a decentralized social media platform that's made up of thousands of separate computers (also known as <em>servers</em> or <em>instances</em>) that have all agreed to speak the same language and share certain data.\r\n\r\nWhen you create your Mastodon account, you get a username, which will be tied to one of these servers. Each server in the network has its own personality — and some servers pride themselves in having no particular personality. Every server is free to join, although some may be closed to new accounts or may require that you get on a waiting list.\r\n\r\nThe most difficult part of getting a Mastodon account is choosing which server to join. Fortunately, there's a <a href=\"//joinmastodon.org/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Mastodon web page</a> (shown in the image below) to help you sort through your options.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297374\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"wp-image-297374 size-full\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/join-mastodon-screen.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing the Join Mastodon page.\" width=\"630\" height=\"303\" /> ©Mastodon<br />Your first stop should be joinmastodon.org.[/caption]\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">You can sign up for Mastodon using the app or the website. However, signing up on the website — on your desktop, laptop, tablet, or phone — is easier than signing up with the app.</p>\r\nYour very first step in getting Mastodon is to go to the <a href=\"//joinmastodon.org/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Join Mastodon page</a>. Then, click the \"Get the App\" link to use the app or click \"Create Account\" to use your web browser. Both the website and the app are free, and creating your account on one allows you to use all the features of both.\r\n\r\nIf you click \"Get the App,\" you'll be taken to a screen where you can choose to go to the Apple App Store (to download the iPhone app) or to Google Play (to download the Android app). Once you get to the app store, download and install the Mastodon app as you would with any app.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Because Mastodon is based on a free and open standard, there are many apps to choose from to use Mastodon. Start with the official one, which is called Mastodon.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Browsing your options</h2>\r\nWhen you visit the Join Mastodon page and click the \"Create Account\" button, you'll be taken to the Servers page, which is shown below.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297375\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297375\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/mastodon-servers-screen.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing the Mastodon Servers page.\" width=\"630\" height=\"303\" /> ©Mastodon<br />Checking out the servers[/caption]\r\n\r\nMany more Mastodon servers than the ones you see when you scroll down this page are available. However, the servers on joinmastodon.org follow certain rules known as the Mastodon Server Covenant, which is an agreement by the server's owner to work to keep the server free of hate speech, to back up their data daily, to have a person on call to deal with technical issues with the server, and to give users of the server at least three months’ notice before shutting down the server.\r\n\r\nBecause these servers have agreed to the Server Covenant, they are seen as trustworthy, stable, and safe places to serve as your home in the Mastodon universe.\r\n\r\nAlthough you can't go wrong with any of the instances listed on the servers page, some will be a better fit for you than others — and that's what makes Mastodon so cool!\r\n\r\nSpend some time browsing through the different servers listed here. Note that you have several options for filtering the results — including by geographical region and topic (listed on the left side of the screen) and by legal structure, sign-up speed, and language (selected from drop-down lists at the top), as shown below.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297373\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297373\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/mastodon-server-descriptions.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing the Mastodon server descriptions page.\" width=\"630\" height=\"323\" /> ©Mastodon<br />Reading the server descriptions[/caption]\r\n\r\nOnce you've found a server or two that sound like places where you'd like to hang out and call your home base, the first potentially make-or-break characteristic of the server is the <em>sign-up speed,</em> which is how fast it will take for you to get an account.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Understanding sign-up speed</h2>\r\nWhen you browse the list of servers, you'll see two types of buttons: \"Apply for an Account\" button and \"Create Account.\" The \"Create Account\" button means that the server has instant signup: You can have a new account on that server in the amount of time it takes for you to choose a username and a password.\r\n\r\nServers with an \"Apply for an Account\" button require that new accounts be approved by an administrator. This approval may take only a few minutes or a day. If you're super-excited to start using Mastodon, go with one of the servers that have the blue \"Create Account\" button.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Don't worry too much about picking the perfect server. Choosing a server doesn't have to be permanent. You can move your account (and all of your followers!) to another server easily after you sign up.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Reading the rules</h2>\r\nRegardless of whether you choose to apply for an account or go with a server that has instant account creation, check out the rules of your chosen server before you commit.

If this is your first time using the app or opening the recording screen, give the app permission to access your camera, audio, and photo library.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong> Look over the recording page, which is shown below. </strong>The recording page is what I call a “movie studio in your pocket.

Feel free to scroll through and try them all.</li>\r\n \t<li>(c) <em>Tap anywhere outside the Effects dialog to return to the recording screen.</em> Or tap the circle with a line in the upper left of the Effects dialog if you decide you don’t want to use any effects.

Note that you can tap the Flip icon or double-tap anywhere on the screen to flip the camera view.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong> Tap the red record button. </strong>If you tap the button once, TikTok will record automatically until you either tap the button briefly again or your 15-second or 60-second time is up. You can also long-press (press and hold down) the record button, and the TikTok app will record for as long as you hold down that button or your time is up.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Long-pressing the record button can be useful for — wait for it (you’re about to be smarter than 80 percent of TikTok users) — zooming! To try it, long-press the record button and, with your finger still down, slide the button up to zoom in and down to zoom out. Boom! Instant zoom as you’re recording. When you release the button, TikTok stops recording.</p>\r\n\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong> If you finish filming before reaching the time limit (15 or 60 seconds) click the red check mark in the bottom-right corner. </strong>When you finish recording your video, the page shown below appears — either automatically or after you tap the check mark.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297433\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"300\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297433\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-editing-video.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot on a cell phone showing editing on TikTok\" width=\"300\" height=\"649\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Editing your newly recorded video[/caption]\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong> (Optional) Add sounds or additional effects.

I usually tap the #Hashtags button and select a popular hashtag or two to add to the video. (If you used an effect in your video, TikTok may automatically add a hashtag for that effect in the description; you can keep it or delete it.)I also suggest turning on the \"Allow Duet\" and \"Allow Stitch\" options to allow others to share your video. Just tap each slider and it will move to the on position and turn green.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297435\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"300\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297435\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-final-recording-page.jpg\" alt=\"TikTok screenshot on cell phone showing the final recording page\" width=\"300\" height=\"649\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Your final recording page[/caption]\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong> To post your video, tap the \"Post\" button.</strong></li>\r\n</ul>\r\nIf this is your first time posting a video, you're asked to verify that it’s okay to publish the video publicly.

For now, become familiar with the following elements:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>The big red record button near the bottom</li>\r\n \t<li>The Effects icon, to the left of the red record button</li>\r\n \t<li>The 60s (60-second) and 15s (15-second) video length options at the bottom of the screen</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297436\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"300\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297436\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-recording-page.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot on cell phone showing the TikTok recording screen\" width=\"300\" height=\"649\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />The recording page has everything you need to create content.[/caption]\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong> Select your video length. </strong>Tap 60s for anything greater than 15 seconds (to a maximum of 60 seconds), or leave this option at the default 15s for videos up to 15 seconds.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong> (Optional) Choose an effect. </strong>Effects are optional, but I wanted to include a description to show you how fun TikTok can be:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>(a) <em>Tap Effects to the left of the red record button and browse through the effects, as shown below</em><em>.</em> TikTok, similar to apps such as Snapchat, usually provides instructions on how to use the effect.</li>\r\n \t<li>(b) <em>Tap an effect you like and try it out by following the instructions on the screen.</em> Select another effect if you don’t like that one. Feel free to scroll through and try them all.</li>\r\n \t<li>(c) <em>Tap anywhere outside the Effects dialog to return to the recording screen.</em> Or tap the circle with a line in the upper left of the Effects dialog if you decide you don’t want to use any effects. The effect begins when you start recording, as discussed in Step 6.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297434\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"300\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297434\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-effects-options.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot on cell phone of some TikTok effects options\" width=\"300\" height=\"649\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Scroll through the many effects available on TikTok.[/caption]\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong> Place what you want to record inside the frame. </strong>Choose what you want to record, and place that person or thing inside the camera frame. Note that you can tap the Flip icon or double-tap anywhere on the screen to flip the camera view.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong> Tap the red record button. </strong>If you tap the button once, TikTok will record automatically until you either tap the button briefly again or your 15-second or 60-second time is up. You can also long-press (press and hold down) the record button, and the TikTok app will record for as long as you hold down that button or your time is up.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Long-pressing the record button can be useful for — wait for it (you’re about to be smarter than 80 percent of TikTok users) — zooming! To try it, long-press the record button and, with your finger still down, slide the button up to zoom in and down to zoom out. Boom! Instant zoom as you’re recording. When you release the button, TikTok stops recording.</p>\r\n\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong> If you finish filming before reaching the time limit (15 or 60 seconds) click the red check mark in the bottom-right corner. </strong>When you finish recording your video, the page shown below appears — either automatically or after you tap the check mark.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297433\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"300\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297433\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-editing-video.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot on a cell phone showing editing on TikTok\" width=\"300\" height=\"649\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Editing your newly recorded video[/caption]\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong> (Optional) Add sounds or additional effects. Then tap Next. </strong>You can choose sounds and other effects to add to your video.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong> Add a description and configure sharing options. </strong>On the next page, shown in the image below, add a description about your video (150 characters or less). I usually tap the #Hashtags button and select a popular hashtag or two to add to the video. (If you used an effect in your video, TikTok may automatically add a hashtag for that effect in the description; you can keep it or delete it.)I also suggest turning on the \"Allow Duet\" and \"Allow Stitch\" options to allow others to share your video. Just tap each slider and it will move to the on position and turn green.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297435\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"300\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297435\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-final-recording-page.jpg\" alt=\"TikTok screenshot on cell phone showing the final recording page\" width=\"300\" height=\"649\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Your final recording page[/caption]\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong> To post your video, tap the \"Post\" button.</strong></li>\r\n</ul>\r\nIf this is your first time posting a video, you're asked to verify that it’s okay to publish the video publicly. If you want your creation to be seen by the world, tap \"Post Now.\" If you would rather it remain private, select \"Me Only\" under \"Who Can Watch This Video.\" The For You page will appear, with the video you just created uploading in the upper-left corner, along with videos from other recommended video creators, which TikTok selects for you, if you’re not following anyone yet.\r\n\r\nWhen the video has finished uploading, it will play automatically on the For You or Following page as long as you keep the app open, repeating itself over and over unless you tap the screen to pause. Congratulations! You just created your first TikTok video.","blurb":"","authors":[{"authorId":9273,"name":"Jesse

content on TikTok, it helps to understand the platform's culture and know the jargon everybody uses.","noIndex":0,"noFollow":0},"content":"Like others in my generation — the brief generation known as xennials, for those born on the cusp between Gen X (born in the 1960s and 1970s) and the millennials (born in the 1980s or 1990s) — I've become adept at adapting to ever-changing tech cultures and jargon. After all, we invented the familiar LOLs and BRBs of AOL Instant Messenger, along with social media emojis and other forms of shortened communication styles.\r\n\r\nNow my kids, who are in Gen Z (born in the late 1990s and early 2000s), are claiming new forms of communication, much of it gaining popularity on TikTok. TikTok culture is shaping the way we, their parents and grandparents, have to learn to communicate with them. No cap! (I explain that last term below, under \"Speaking TikTok jargon.\")\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Becoming familiar with TikTok culture</h2>\r\nTikTok has developed a different culture than other social networks you may be used to, such as Facebook or Twitter. You'll be most successful understanding this culture when you begin creating content on the platform. The key to understanding TikTok’s culture is to know these principles:\r\n<h3><strong>You’re not alone!</strong></h3>\r\nTikTok has an estimated 1.1 billion users. (A second version of TikTok, called Douyin, is available only in China.) You’ll find thriving communities in just about any genre and interest you can think of, including religion, mental health, sports, music, arts, crafts, and cooking. For example, popular TikTok user @catieosaurus uses her TikTok account to talk about ADHD, as shown below.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297426\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"300\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297426\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-catieo.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing the TikTok personality @catieosaurus\" width=\"300\" height=\"649\" /> ©Catie O.<br />@catieosaurus highlights living with ADHD on TikTok.[/caption]\r\n<h3><strong>TikTok is about being yourself</strong></h3>\r\nMany popular accounts convey the person's normal, everyday life. Big-name celebrities, such as Andy Grammer, use TikTok to share the behind-the-scenes of their everyday lives. Chef Gordon Ramsey’s daughter pranks her dad (he goes along with it!) for the world to see. On TikTok, everyone is human. You get to be as well.\r\n<h3><strong>TikTok is one very large conversation</strong></h3>\r\nThe <em>comment</em>, <em>like</em>, <em>duet</em>, and <em>stitch</em> features get people interacting in fun and creative ways. For example, popular influencers might start a dance, or begin a conversation, or sing a song and ask their audiences to join in. (An <em>influencer</em> is a person on social media with many followers or the ability to make content go viral and even affect product purchases.)\r\n\r\nAs you surf the For You page, you might discover one of their followers joining in, and get inspired to do your own creative twist for your own audience. Your audience comments and participates themselves, and the conversation continues. You can also use hashtags so that the conversation you’re participating in is categorized with similar videos.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297427\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"300\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297427\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/tiktok-aaronhanania.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot of Aaron Hanania on TikTok\" width=\"300\" height=\"649\" /> ©Aaron Hanania<br />Aaron Hanania sparking joy in his audience[/caption]\r\n<h3><strong>TikTok is about creativity and having fun!</strong></h3>\r\nTikTok’s mission statement is, “TikTok is the leading destination for short-form mobile video. Our mission is to inspire creativity and bring joy.” As you create content on the TikTok platform, don’t assume that you have to know how to dance, sing, or draw. Think about what you have to offer that is unique and creative and might spark joy in whoever watches and interacts with your content. For example, Aaron Hanania, shown in Figure 5-2, spreads positivity to his audience. Most importantly, have fun! A welcoming community is there to cheer you on.\r\n\r\nThere you go! I now dub thee, Sir or Madame (or whatever your preferred royal pronoun) reader, a part of the TikTok culture.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Speaking TikTok jargon</h2>\r\nKnowing a little TikTok jargon can help you sound like one of the cool kids. Trust me on this.\r\n\r\nHere are some of the top TikTok slang words and jargon you might come across as you’re using the app. Many of these are used by Gen Z, so when I'm in doubt, I just ask my kids (sheesh, I feel old):\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong><em>X</em> TikTok:</strong> When creators say they’ve stumbled upon Dog TikTok, or Cat TikTok, or TikTok For Dummies TikTok or any other number of TikToks, they’re talking about a specific group or community of people with similar interests.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: “Congratulations, you’ve stumbled upon Fruit Snack TikTok, where all your Fruit Snack cravings can come true!”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Using the <em>X</em> TikTok verbiage can be a great way to encourage your audience to join your club of followers obsessed with something as silly as fruit snacks. They might even make their own videos and duets about the exclusive club you’ve created.</p>\r\n\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Cap </strong><strong>or No Cap</strong><strong>:</strong> These were popularized by the song “No Cap” by rappers Young Thug & Future in 2017. Cap (designated by a baseball cap emoji) means lie. No Cap (designated by the prohibited emoji followed by the baseball cap) means no lie or for real. You often see the emojis used in comments if someone agrees (the no cap emoji sequence) or doesn’t believe you (the cap emoji).\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: “No cap! TikTok For Dummies will teach anyone how to get acclimated to TikTok!” (See what I did there?)</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Extra:</strong> When someone’s a little <em>extra,</em> they’re being overly dramatic or over-the-top.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: “David seems to get into everyone’s business and always wants to be the center of attention. He’s so extra!”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Simp:</strong> The original Gen Z users started using TikTok to meet and date other users. They’re all about flirting, and <em>simp</em> is a term that means someone is doing too much for another person he or she likes.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: “She’s such a simp towards Allen. He doesn’t even give her much, but she can’t stop trying to please him!”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Karen:</strong> A <em>Karen</em> is a woman who gets in everyone’s business, feeling she’s entitled to do so. The male equivalent is a <em>Chad.</em>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: “He’s such a Chad — he thinks he runs this town, reporting every violation he can find!”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Bet:</strong> Short for <em>you bet</em> or <em>sure.</em> It means you acknowledge what’s being said.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: Person 1: “Y’all better finish reading this book soon so I can read it next!” Person 2: “Bet.”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Thirst trap:</strong> You’ll see this term a lot on TikTok. When people create a post solely to get attention from those who might be attracted to them, it’s called a <em>thirst trap.</em>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: “Ha! This video is such a thirst trap. Look at all the guys simping on her!”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Sus:</strong> If you’re familiar with the popular computer game Among Us, you’ll recognize this term, which suggests someone is suspicious. On TikTok, it's used anytime something seems suspicious.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: “I don’t know — this video seems a bit sus. I think that hair looks like a wig.”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Boomer:</strong> Originally used to define people in the baby boomer generation, <em>boomer</em> now means someone deemed too old for a younger person to grasp.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage (I'm quoting my kids here): “You’re such a boomer, Dad. You don’t even understand what sus means.”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Yeet:</strong> This term is used to convey excitement, approval, surprise, or just energy.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: “Can’t wait for my mom to get on TikTok! Yeet yeet!”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Clown emoji 🤡</strong><strong>:</strong> Appearing in comments, this term usually means something is foolish, scary, or suspicious. It’s usually not a positive term.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: Person 1: “I’m going to climb up this rock wall.” Person 2: <strong>🤡</strong></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>","description":"Like others in my generation — the brief generation known as xennials, for those born on the cusp between Gen X (born in the 1960s and 1970s) and the millennials (born in the 1980s or 1990s) — I've become adept at adapting to ever-changing tech cultures and jargon.

He doesn’t even give her much, but she can’t stop trying to please him!”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Karen:</strong> A <em>Karen</em> is a woman who gets in everyone’s business, feeling she’s entitled to do so. The male equivalent is a <em>Chad.</em>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: “He’s such a Chad — he thinks he runs this town, reporting every violation he can find!”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Bet:</strong> Short for <em>you bet</em> or <em>sure.</em> It means you acknowledge what’s being said.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: Person 1: “Y’all better finish reading this book soon so I can read it next!” Person 2: “Bet.”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Thirst trap:</strong> You’ll see this term a lot on TikTok. When people create a post solely to get attention from those who might be attracted to them, it’s called a <em>thirst trap.</em>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: “Ha! This video is such a thirst trap. Look at all the guys simping on her!”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Sus:</strong> If you’re familiar with the popular computer game Among Us, you’ll recognize this term, which suggests someone is suspicious. On TikTok, it's used anytime something seems suspicious.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: “I don’t know — this video seems a bit sus. I think that hair looks like a wig.”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Boomer:</strong> Originally used to define people in the baby boomer generation, <em>boomer</em> now means someone deemed too old for a younger person to grasp.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage (I'm quoting my kids here): “You’re such a boomer, Dad. You don’t even understand what sus means.”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Yeet:</strong> This term is used to convey excitement, approval, surprise, or just energy.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: “Can’t wait for my mom to get on TikTok! Yeet yeet!”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Clown emoji 🤡</strong><strong>:</strong> Appearing in comments, this term usually means something is foolish, scary, or suspicious. It’s usually not a positive term.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Usage: Person 1: “I’m going to climb up this rock wall.” Person 2: <strong>🤡</strong></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>","blurb":"","authors":[{"authorId":9273,"name":"Jesse

Here’s a short overview of some of what you can set in Twitter.\r\n\r\n<img class=\"aligncenter wp-image-261585 size-full\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/twitter-account-settings.jpg\" alt=\"Twitter privacy\" width=\"496\" height=\"450\" />\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Privacy and Safety</strong> is the best area for being sure you have a pleasant time on Twitter. Here you can make decisions as to how much contact you want from Twitter and from those with whom you connect on the site. Just be sure to read anything you are agreeing to before you give permission. Here’s a few things to consider:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Don’t protect your Tweets; this makes them visible only to those whom you follow. If you set this, someone (perhaps an old friend) will find you through search, but can’t see what you’re sharing. People get to know you and about you by reading your Tweets.</li>\r\n \t<li>Twitter is a public forum, so be careful what you say (or are willing to defend or argue). Never post anything on Twitter that you wouldn’t want to see printed in your local newspaper. More than one celebrity has done this at one time or another and regretted it. You can delete Tweets, but they stay in the public timeline from the time you post until the time you delete them, and someone might take a screen shot.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Why add a location to your Tweets?</strong> Unless you want the public to know every place you are, leave this option blank.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Address book.</strong> Address books are tricky if you want to keep your contacts private. If you <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/article/technology/social-media/twitter/how-to-find-contacts-on-twitter-145986/\">uploaded every contact</a> you have, you might find some on Twitter and compromise your friends’ privacy.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Direct Messages are private messages that you access in a different area from the public timeline.</strong> There’s a lot of strangers out there. You can opt to receive Direct Messages from anyone or not.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Send/Receive read receipts.</strong> If you read a private, Direct Message and choose not to respond, it could be considered a breach of etiquette. So you turn this option off and answer messages in your own time.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>The Safety area.</strong> This covers <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/article/technology/social-media/twitter/tips-for-what-you-should-and-shouldnt-include-on-twitter-145977/\">sensitive content and Tweet media settings</a>, which allow you to label your media for the appropriate viewers, and select whose media appears on your Twitter home page. If you prefer not to see possibly offensive images, leave Display Media That May Contain Sensitive Content unselected. If you plan on posting some racy pictures, select the Mark my Media as Containing Sensitive Content check box — to protect the innocent.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >A most important Twitter setting</h2>\r\nBuried subtly below the <em>very</em> prominent Manage Your Contacts bar is an innocent-looking category called Personalization and Data.\r\n\r\n<img class=\"aligncenter wp-image-261586 size-full\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/twitter-personalization-data.jpg\" alt=\"Twitter Personalization & Data\" width=\"491\" height=\"143\" />\r\n\r\nThere’s no free lunch on the Internet.

Twitter knows your interests because of the words you share on the platform. For example, if you talk about dogs, you might see pet food ads; talk about a garden and you could see ads from florists or gardening suppliers; talk about politicians and you may see political ads. Get it? You can opt in or not right here.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Personalize based on your devices.</strong> This option gets a bit trickier. When you’re on Twitter, they obviously can see what you comment on and how you feel about things. Know this about your devices, this is one thing you can’t control: Every browser or app you use on any device accesses the web via its own IP address set by the Internet provider. The IP address doesn’t expose you personally, but it would indicate that, say, someone from Atlanta, Georgia is visiting a website at a certain time, on an iPhone using the iOS operating system (and what version). What you can control with this setting is whether you give Twitter permission to follow you around the web for further information on your interests.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Personalize on the places you’ve been.</strong> This permission allows Twitter to serve you ads that may be relevant when you are away from home. This can be a good thing when you’re traveling, like getting an ad from a local restaurant. Remember that because when you are on a mobile device, websites can tell where you are anyway.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Track where you see Twitter content across the web.</strong> Data (not personalized — meaning they don’t know your name, Twitter ID, email address, or phone number) will be used when you browse the Internet to serve up ads on websites that match your interests.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Share your data with Twitter’s business partners.</strong> This generally means they sell. (A business needs to make money, right?) Twitter might “share” device-level data (like that IP address), demographics about you, your interests, and what ads you’ve viewed (and/or taken action on). Again, as in the paragraph prior, your actual personal information will not be “shared.”</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nRevisit these permissions occasionally on all platforms to see what changes have been made and keep up on any changes in <a href=\"//help.twitter.com/en/safety-and-security\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Twitter Privacy</a>.","description":"On the left side of the Twitter Account page, you’ll notice lots of links.

Perhaps you, too, first heard about Mastodon on Twitter. As a migrant from Twitter to Mastodon, you're in good company. Finding members of your Twitter flock on Mastodon isn't difficult, and it's a great way to get a head start with building a following.\r\n\r\nIf someone considered you follow-worthy on Twitter, they will on Mastodon, too. Several tools have been created for finding Mastodon accounts of your Twitter followers. If you haven't deleted your Twitter account, you can use any (or all) of these tools.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Using Twitodon to find friends on Mastodon</h2>\r\nOne service to help you find your Twitter followers on Mastodon is <a href=\"//twitodon.com/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Twitodon</a>. This site works by linking to your Twitter account and your Mastodon account and comparing the list of accounts you follow on Twitter with accounts on Mastodon that have also used Twitodon. If matches are found, Twitodon will give you a file you can import into your Mastodon account.\r\n\r\nFollow these steps to use Twitodon:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Make sure you're logged into both your Twitter account and your Mastodon account.</strong></li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Go to <a href=\"//twitodon.com/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Twitodon </a></strong><strong>and click the link under the \"Get Started\" header to log into your Twitter account. </strong>A window opens, asking you to authorize Twitodon to access your Twitter account.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Click the button to authorize Twitodon. </strong>You return to Twitodon and its Step 1 has been crossed off.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Enter your Mastodon server's address (including the //) in the field under Twitodon's Step 2, as shown in Figure</strong> <strong>1, and then click Sign In. </strong>For example, if your Mastodon account is on mastodon.social, you'd enter <a href=\"//mastodon.social\">//mastodon.social</a>. A screen appears asking you to authorize Twitodon to access your Mastodon account.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Click Authorize. </strong>You return to Twitodon and Step 2 has been crossed off.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Watch the number of scanned users go up as Twitodon processes the list, as shown in Figure</strong> <strong>2. </strong>We hope the number of matches found go up as well!</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297328\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297328\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/mastodon-login-twitodon.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot of Twitodon page to log into Mastodon\" width=\"630\" height=\"554\" /> ©Twitodon<br />Figure 1: Logging into your Mastodon server from Twitodon[/caption]\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297327\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297327\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/mastodon-twitodon-scans-accounts.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing Twitodon page for scanning Twitter accounts\" width=\"630\" height=\"527\" /> ©Twitodon<br />Figure 2: Twitodon scans accounts you follow on Twitter.[/caption]\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">Because Twitodon can find only users who have also used Twitodon, don't be surprised if it doesn't come back with many or any results. The good news is that as more people migrate from Twitter and use Twitodon, it will be able to make more matches!

Perhaps you, too, first heard about Mastodon on Twitter. As a migrant from Twitter to Mastodon, you're in good company. Finding members of your Twitter flock on Mastodon isn't difficult, and it's a great way to get a head start with building a following.\r\n\r\nIf someone considered you follow-worthy on Twitter, they will on Mastodon, too. Several tools have been created for finding Mastodon accounts of your Twitter followers. If you haven't deleted your Twitter account, you can use any (or all) of these tools.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Using Twitodon to find friends on Mastodon</h2>\r\nOne service to help you find your Twitter followers on Mastodon is <a href=\"//twitodon.com/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Twitodon</a>. This site works by linking to your Twitter account and your Mastodon account and comparing the list of accounts you follow on Twitter with accounts on Mastodon that have also used Twitodon. If matches are found, Twitodon will give you a file you can import into your Mastodon account.\r\n\r\nFollow these steps to use Twitodon:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Make sure you're logged into both your Twitter account and your Mastodon account.</strong></li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Go to <a href=\"//twitodon.com/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Twitodon </a></strong><strong>and click the link under the \"Get Started\" header to log into your Twitter account. </strong>A window opens, asking you to authorize Twitodon to access your Twitter account.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Click the button to authorize Twitodon. </strong>You return to Twitodon and its Step 1 has been crossed off.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Enter your Mastodon server's address (including the //) in the field under Twitodon's Step 2, as shown in Figure</strong> <strong>1, and then click Sign In. </strong>For example, if your Mastodon account is on mastodon.social, you'd enter <a href=\"//mastodon.social\">//mastodon.social</a>. A screen appears asking you to authorize Twitodon to access your Mastodon account.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Click Authorize. </strong>You return to Twitodon and Step 2 has been crossed off.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Watch the number of scanned users go up as Twitodon processes the list, as shown in Figure</strong> <strong>2. </strong>We hope the number of matches found go up as well!</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297328\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297328\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/mastodon-login-twitodon.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot of Twitodon page to log into Mastodon\" width=\"630\" height=\"554\" /> ©Twitodon<br />Figure 1: Logging into your Mastodon server from Twitodon[/caption]\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297327\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297327\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/mastodon-twitodon-scans-accounts.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing Twitodon page for scanning Twitter accounts\" width=\"630\" height=\"527\" /> ©Twitodon<br />Figure 2: Twitodon scans accounts you follow on Twitter.[/caption]\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">Because Twitodon can find only users who have also used Twitodon, don't be surprised if it doesn't come back with many or any results.
