How Do You Add Favorites on TikTok?

While browsing TikTok, you often see something you like: a sound, a hashtag, an effect, or a TikTok video. And you’d want to keep them close so you can maybe use them later. Not judging…

Well, you can totally do that with the Favorites function. To start, find a video you like on TikTok:

Once you open the video’s main page, find the three-dot icon located on the right-hand sidebar, and then tap it.

A new menu will open up (look below).

The “Add to Favorites” option is first on the list, so tap it.

Alternatively, if the three-dot option doesn’t appear, you need to tap on the Share Icon and select “Add to Favorites (see below).

Are favorites visible on TikTok?

Once you add something to your favorites, anyone can see them.

That folder is public, so think twice before adding your ex’s photos to your favorites.

Make your account private if you don’t want people to scroll through your favorites.

That’ll stop people from snooping around.

Only your followers will be able to see your favorites.

However, people won’t be notified when you favorite their content.

That’s a load off of many people’s chests. Many users would feel better knowing that.

What happens when you like TikTok?

When you like a TikTok video, the app will add it to all the videos you wanted in the past.

It’s all a big database of things you like, and you can access it whenever you want to.

On your TikTok dash, there’s a heart icon. That’s where you can find everything you liked before.

You can rewatch videos, laugh at vines, listen to music, and go through all the content you liked before.

Many people don’t know about this feature, though.

Most TikTok users like videos out of appreciation.

They don’t know there’s a special place where all liked content goes.

Is there a limit to favorite content on TikTok?

No, there’s not.

TikTok allows you to favorite as much content as you like.

Think of hundreds of videos, sounds, hashtags, and questions in one place.

What’s your favorite section; it can be as big as you want.

It’s a very handy feature, especially when you don’t have time to repeatedly look for the same thing.

By adding to your favorites, you know where to find it next.

It’s also a good thing that TikTok offers categories for favorite content.

You don’t have to scroll through dozens of videos to find a hashtag or a sound you like.

They’re all in specific categories that you can search in.

TikTok favorites are a smart way of helping people compartmentalize their content!
