How To Favorite Or Like A Video On TikTok
TikTok is a popular social media application that lets you view and make your own short videos. Similar to most other social media platforms, you can like other people’s content to support the creator. But, you can also favorite their videos too.
This article will teach you how to favorite and like songs and videos. That way, you’ll always have a selection of your favorite music and memories readily available in just a few taps.
Keep The Songs And Videos You Like
With so many creators on TikTok, you’re bound to find a few favorites. Of course, you can always follow your favorite creators, but what can you do if you want to view one video over and over again? Well, you can like it. Keep reading to find out how it works.
How to Like a Video
One aspect unique to TikTok is the ability to find the videos you liked in a folder on your profile. In this section, we’ll teach you how to like a video and where to find it. There are two ways to like a video:
- Each video has a heart icon to the left. Tap the icon and it will change from white to red. When the icon changes color, you’ve successfully liked the video.
- Another way to like a video is to double-tap the center of the screen. This is best for one-handed use. Like the method above, the heart icon to the right will turn from white to red.
Now that you’ve liked a video, let’s talk about where you can go to view it again.
- Tap on the Profile icon in the lower right corner.
- Look under Edit Profile for three icons. The one in the middle looks like a heart with a line through it. You can scroll through your liked videos for the one you want again.
How to Favorite a Video
There are many reasons users prefer to add a video to their Favorites rather than their liked videos. For 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.
After you’ve added the video to your favorites you can locate it again by following these steps:
- Navigate to your profile by tapping on the Profile icon in the lower right corner.
- Under Edit profile tap on the favorites icon to the far right in the icon menu.
- Here, you will see all of your favorite videos.
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 difficulty 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 listen to 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.
