How to Favorite a Video
There are a lot of reasons users prefer to add a video to their Favorites rather than their liked videos. One, it may be easier to find a favorite video because you won’t have as many to sift through. Another reason is that you may not like the creator so you don’t want to increase their likes. Either way, you can favorite a TikTok video by following these steps:
- Tap on the Share icon to the right while watching the video.
- Tap on the ‘Add to Favorites’ icon.
You can easily find your favorite videos on TikTok by navigating to your profile (the ‘Profile’ icon in the lower right-hand corner).
There’s a little icon next to the “Edit Profile” button. It looks like a little bookmark. Tap it, and you will enter the database of all the videos you have favorited. The small links on top of the page let you navigate between tabs containing your favorite hashtags, sounds, effects, and, of course, videos. Everything is placed in categories, so you won’t have a hard time finding the video you want.
That’s all there is to it! Now, your favorite videos are stored safely in the Favorites section of TikTok.
You can hear all kinds of songs in other people’s videos. Sometimes, you will hear something you like, and when that happens, you can save it for later! That’s a great little feature for people who love music because it allows them to discover new songs they may not have heard otherwise.
When you run into a video with a song you want to favorite, all you have to do is tap the little circular icon in the bottom-right corner of the post you are viewing. The name of the song and the artist will appear on your screen.
Just tap “Add to Favorites,” and the song will be saved in the Sounds menu. You can listen to it anytime you want, and you can also use it in your videos by clicking on the Favorites tab when adding sounds.
You can also like comments made by other people, just like you would on other social media platforms such as Facebook or Instagram. You do it by tapping the Comments button on the video and tapping the heart icon next to your favorite comment. Again, the heart will change color from gray to red, and the like count number will increase.
Share Your Favorite Videos On Other Social Media Platforms
TikTok is the go-to app for creating short videos, memes, and gifs. It’s got close to a billion registered users, but most of them don’t look at the feed in the app. If you want to make sure that your favorite video reaches your friends, you will have to share it on Instagram or YouTube.
The app allows you to connect your accounts on both of these social media platforms directly to TikTok. That means that you won’t have to save and upload videos to each platform separately. Instead, tap the share button while viewing the video in TikTok, and it will appear on your Instagram or YouTube profiles.
