How To Find your Liked Videos on TikTok
We all want to be liked and if you use Tik Tok, you want your short videos to be liked too. So how do you know which is working and which isn’t? How can you find your liked videos on Tik Tok? How can you unlike videos if you change your mind? This tutorial will show you how.
Social networks have taken the Like and run with it. Combined with the little dopamine boost we get when something of ours is liked or followed, it’s a cyclic process that keeps us posting and wanting more. It has been likened to that small high you get when you win money or a prize in a raffle. A shot of positive feelings followed by the urge for more. Neil Patel has a very good post analyzing the psychological aspects of Facebook Likes. The same principles can be applied to any social network including Tik Tok.
Watch your liked videos on Tik Tok
Your liked videos will appear on the For You page in the app. When you first install Tik Tok, you will obviously not have much there so the network selects some videos for you. As soon as you open it, a video will play and your journey begins. The more you use Tik Tok the more videos will appear in For You and the more personalized and selections that are made for you will be.
You can scroll vertically through all your liked videos from this page and then see others the app things you might like too.

How to view videos from people you follow on Tik Tok
As well as liking a video, you can also follow an uploader if they are consistently producing content you want to view. This is a good way to keep up with whatever they put out and provide a steady stream of content for you to watch whenever you open Tik Tok.
To view videos from people you follow, navigate to the Following page. Here you will see everything uploaded from those creators under each name.
If you want to follow a Muser or uploader, tap their name at the top of a video and select Follow. They will then appear on your Following page and you will be able to access all their content from there.
Find videos to like in Tik Tok
Tik Tok plays random videos as you open and has two other functions to find new content for you to enjoy. One is Trending Hashtags and the other is Search.
Trending Hashtags is similar to other networks. The app collates searches and activity on the app and decides what videos are most popular and what hashtags they contain. They will then appear on the Trending Hashtags page for you to browse.
Search is at the bottom of the page and is signified by a magnifying glass icon. Hit the icon, enter a search term and the app will deliver a page of videos to scroll through. The algorithm is fairly accurate but you might occasionally see random videos that have nothing to do with your search term. That’s just part of the fun.
A lot of work has gone into Tik Tok to make it look and feel like other social networks while being different at the same time. If you have used Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or something else, and who hasn’t, you will feel instantly at home in Tik Tok. If you used Music.ly before Tik Tok took it over, it works almost exactly the same with a few refinements.
