How Stories Work on TikTok
Before explaining how to make a fuss on TikTok I want to make you aware of the fact that this social network feature can only be used from the TikTok mobile app for Android (also downloadable from alternative stores ) and iOS / iPadOS : everything is explained below.
How to create stories on TikTok
To create stories on TikTok you must first start the app of the well-known social network and log in to your account if necessary.
Once this is done, click on the (+) button located at the bottom and proceed to create a video or photo to include in your story. In this context, you can use the editing tools of the social network to add a background music piece ( Add sound ), set the speed and apply filters and effects using the appropriate buttons.
When you are ready to record or to take a photo, then press the round button located in the center, then in the next screen that is shown to you apply further changes to the video by adding, for example, an overlay using the Text button or inserting stickers via the appropriate sticker menu.
Finally, when you are ready to publish the story, all you have to do is press the Publish as story button : in this section of the social network (which will be visible by pressing on your profile picture ), the video will be visible to your followers for only 24 hours .
How to manage stories on TikTok
After publishing a story on TikTok you can view it at any time within 24 hours of publication , in order to possibly change the privacy settings or to delete or save it, to be able to keep it on your device even after it expires.
To do this, go to your profile section and tap on your profile picture located at the top. Once this is done, press the icon (…) and, in the menu that is shown to you, press the Privacy Settings button to adjust who can see the video by choosing whether to show it to your followers , your friends or to make sure that only you can see it ( Only me option ).
Alternatively, you can press the Save video button to save the story on your device, or the Delete button twice in a row, in order to delete the story.
How to see stories on TikTok
Would you like to see TikTok stories posted by other users ? In this case, to succeed, all you have to do is search for the profile of the user of your interest using the search engine of the social network ( the magnifying glass icon ).
After identifying the profile of the person you are interested in, tap their username to view their profile page. Now, if there is a blue circle next to his profile picture , it means that a story is available: in this case, presses on his profile picture to view the video or photo he posted in the story.
Did you know that you can also interact with stories? Press the heart icon to like it or tap the balloon icon to write a comment via the Add a comment text field . You didn’t think it would be that easy, did you?
