HOW TO REPOST ON TIKTOK IN 2023: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
How to Repost on TikTok: What Does Repost Mean on TikTok?
Reposting on TikTok is much like “sharing” a post on Facebook or LinkedIn. When you repost on TikTok, you’re taking someone else’s content, whether that be content posted by an individual or by a brand, and delivering it directly to your followers. This allows you to expand your target audience or raise awareness about other facets of your brand, other divisions within your company, issues you find important and more.
As an example: our Sociallyin TikTok account might reshare these incredible, thumb-stopping content produced by our Sociallyin STUDIOS TikTok account. But what would be the goal for us reposting Sociallyin STUDIOS TikTok content on our main account like that?
The answer is to raise awareness about the wonderful work our creative team is doing on a daily basis to provide our clients with the best of the best in terms of social media content, dedicated photography and more.
The History, The Why and The Wow of Reposting
The TikTok repost feature hasn’t always been a thing for TikTok. In fact, it’s a relatively new feature, and one we’ve been working hard to make the most of since it’s evolution.
Originally, the repost on TikTok feature was just a test. Some of you might’ve seen it grace your feeds as early as the tail end of 2021, but many have only seen it roll out full-time in the last six months–something that has for sure made it a particular “hot topic” in social media for 2022.
Did you know that there are whole accounts dedicated to reposting TikTok videos? They don’t even need content of their own-they have the spotlight by re-purposing other creators content! Pretty neat, when you think about it. However, it makes us wonder how TikTok will keep creators from teaming up to repost and create the re-vine for re-vine crisis that took place on the RIP Vine platform over a decade ago. AKA where creators team up and exchange shares/comments/engagements to expand their reach and game the algorithm. Crazy, right?
