How To Find Your Liked Videos on TikTok
The concept of the “like” is central to pretty much all the social media apps and platforms. It is such a vital part of social media success that some users will do anything to get the coveted heart or thumbs up. We get a little rush every time someone likes one of our posts or pictures or videos, and we get addicted to that feeling and want more.
The boost we get from every single “like” is equivalent to that small high you get when you win a large amount of money or a prize in a raffle – a shot of good feeling, followed by an urge to get some more. Pretty addictive, isn’t it? Well, that’s why social media platforms are becoming more and more popular.
How to See Your Liked Videos
It’s always helpful to go through your videos and see which ones did well and which ones could do better. To see the likes that your videos have received in the past, do this:
- Open TikTok and click on the Me icon at the lower right-hand corner.
- Tap on the video that you’ve posted and look at the heart symbol on the right-hand side to see your likes.
Now you can go back and review how popular each video was. If you really want to become TikTok famous check out how to create and upload videos to TikTok.
If you want to see which videos you’ve liked, you can do that too! From the profile page, you will see three options under the ‘Edit Profile’ button. Click on the heart icon with a line through it.
This will show you a list of all of the videos you’ve liked from other creators.
How to Like a Video/Follow a Creator in TikTok
It is very simple to like videos and to follow creators. In the video that you want to like or follow:

That’s all there is to it. The video will then appear in your For You page, and the creator will appear in your Following page.
How to Dislike a Video in TikTok
So you thought you liked a certain video, but after watching it a half-dozen times, you realize you hate it more than you’ve ever hated anything. It’s pretty much normal to change your mind about something. So, are you permanently stuck with this terrible clip in your feed? Not at all. You can always unlike a video.
- Navigate to your For You page.
- Swipe to find the video you no longer like.
- Long press in the video.
- Select Not Interested in the popup menu to remove the video.
How to View Videos From Creators You Follow
When you follow a creator, you are telling TikTok that you want to see this person’s content whenever they produce it. Following multiple prolific and talented creators is an excellent way to ensure that you always have a steady stream of quality content available to you when you open the app. Once you’ve followed a creator, anytime you open the Following page, their videos will appear, and you can swipe through them at will.
Find Videos to Like in TikTok
When you first start out, TikTok plays random videos for you, but you will quickly establish your own taste, and the app will start showing you things that you are likely to enjoy. The more time you spend on the app, and the more you like videos, the more TikTok detects the type of videos you prefer to watch. You can also directly seek out content that’s to your taste by using the search function.
In the search page (called Discover), you can search on trending hashtags, which work similarly to hashtags on other social media sites. TikTok collects data and activity levels for given hashtags and puts the hot hashtags right on the Discover page. You can search for hashtags directly, or scroll through the top hashtags to see what other people are enjoying.
You can also search for search terms using creator names, ideas, song titles – the usual search keywords. The algorithm is relatively accurate, but you might occasionally see random videos that have nothing to do with your search term. That’s just part of the fun.
