Tag People on TikTok in Video Captions And the Comment Section

There’s no way to tag someone in a TikTok video other than through the caption.

You’ll need to edit the caption and mention that person’s username.

Viewers can tap on their username and be redirected to their TikTok page.

Alternatively, you can tag someone in the comment section of your video.

You may want to do this for several reasons:

  • You want to tag a friend in the comment section to do some brainstorming on the fly
  • You want to reply to somebody’s comment, so you tag them to notify them of this
  • You want to tag someone in the comments so they can respond to your comment
  • Your video was inspired by someone else, so you tag them in the comment section to start a conversation

Below, we’ll explore a few ways of tagging people in the video caption and the comment section.

It’s a very easy process that everyone should be familiar with.


Tagging someone in your post is only a given today.

Whether it’s Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok, tagging is a key function for all social media platforms.

On TikTok, you can tag someone in the video caption or the comments.

Doing so is not complicated. Even a newcomer will get the hang of it quickly enough.

The @ symbol has become synonymous with tagging, and the same holds on TikTok.

Use it whenever you want to tag a friend in your post or the comment section!


How to remove a mention on TikTok?

You can remove your mention from that post or video.

Go to your Inbox, select Mention and tags from the upper-side menu, and see all your mentions there.

Whenever someone mentions you in a post, you’ll find it here.

You can remove any mention on TikTok from this menu.

There’s a way to edit any post or comment you’ve been tagged in and remove your tag from them.

Will someone know I tagged them on TikTok?

Yes, they will receive a notification that you tagged them.

They’d receive a notification immediately if you mentioned them in a video caption or a comment.

They’ll be able to reply within a moment’s notice after you tag them.

This works exactly like Facebook and Instagram, where a tagged person is notified immediately.

Afterward, you can remove someone’s tag whenever you want to.

However, they won’t be notified that you removed their tag from your video.

What TikTok hashtags get the most likes?

TikTok is the land of hashtags on social media. Some of the most popular hashtags include #tiktok, #viral, #happy, #fashion, #comedy, #foryoupage, #fun, #music, #trending, #tiktok4fun, #cute, #memes, #followme, etc.

It would help if you defined a goal to find the best hashtags on TikTok.

What do you want to accomplish? Do you want to engage with your public, sell a product, or reach a specific audience?

A good hashtag strategy considers everything and selects only the most efficient hashtags.

You can study popular influencers and see how they engage their subs with hashtags.

The TikTok Creator Marketplace is a great place to study influencer branding.

You’ll understand the newest trends and cultures and what makes them tick.

Alongside this knowledge comes insight on the hashtags that get the most likes on TikTok!

You can take on challenges and improve your channel’s popularity while including trendy hashtags.
