The first rule of becoming viral on TikTok is people being able to share your video. Video sharing and connecting with users are the cornerstones of TikTok. But apart from knowing that people share your videos, you might be also asking yourself can you see who shared your TikTok video.
Users find your videos in one of two ways: in their For Your Page being suggested by the algorithm or a friend sending them a video. Additionally, many users discover content through TikTok’s features that allow users to create collaborative content, like Stitches and Duets.
However, as sharing videos remains the main method for increasing traffic and views of videos, you might be curious to know if you can see the exact people that shared and viewed your TikTok video.
