Think about how difficult it would be for you to find your online friend from France if this was 70 years ago. Little to no methods of communication, highly expensive transportation, and no networking. The world would be a big, big place, and there’s a good chance you won’t be able to see one-fourth of it in your lifetime. Fast-forward to today. You can contact your friend who lives thousands of hours away hours behind you (time-zone differences) in less than five seconds! Who would’ve ever thought humans were capable of that?
You can see the faces of people you don’t know and probably never will in a small, slim rectangular machine.
You can talk to anyone and even go anywhere in a matter of hours (as long as money is no object). For all intents and purposes, we have access to any other human being we want!
You can see or hear someone’s first name and actually find their social media profile the next day. Then, you’ll find their friends’ profiles, possibly their school and even their home address, without even having to work that hard for it.
Now, is it a good thing or a bad thing to be globally available to anyone intending to find us?
Many would argue that it’s not a good thing because we have no privacy and we’re just helping criminals. However, crime isn’t something that depends on the availability of data. It’s about human nature; it’ll always happen as long as humans have something to disagree about.
On the other hand, there have been countless instances where this availability has saved people’s lives, marriages, and relationships. It has helped people achieve their goals, find what they’re looking for, and fulfill their lives’ purpose. It has helped people reach their full potential without any external constraints.
The first point of view cannot be called wrong. It’s all about moderation. As long as we don’t get influenced by technology to the point where we lose our identity, we must accept it as a necessary evil.
It isn’t very reasonable to think that after how far we’ve come, there’s a chance that we can put all of this on hold and live non-tech lives. Isn’t it just better to try and balance it and, whenever needed, accept it?
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about how you can find someone’s Instagram account through their TikTok profile. Stick with us until the end to learn all there is to know about it!
How to Find Someone’s Instagram from TikTok
TikTok is one of the most popular social media platforms among teenagers today. Content creators and influencers are all working hard to create content that can make people smile, relate to it, and make it viral.
Moreover, influencer or content creator as a profession grows more and more common every day. They want to be contacted by business prospects and career opportunities, which is why they often mention their contact information on their profiles.
So, if you’ve come across a user with whom you’re intrigued and want to learn more, we’ve got you. Here are some of the methods you can employ to find the Instagram profile of a user from their TikTok profile:
Check out their bio
The first place to look for a link to their Instagram account or any other way to contact them is their TikTok bio. Most creators and users link their other social media accounts so that their fans can reach out and follow them.
Here’s how you can check out a user’s TikTok bio:
Step 1: Launch TikTok on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: The first screen you’ll land on is your FYP or For You page. At the bottom, you’ll see five icons. In the left corner, besides the Home icon, you’ll see the Discover icon. Tap on it.
Step 3: At the top of the next screen, you’ll see a search bar. Enter the name of the user whose bio you wish to see and tap on Search.
Step 4: From the results that appear, tap on the profile you’re looking for. On their profile, you’ll see their bio in the middle of the screen, under the options to message and follow them.
If they’ve linked anything at all: their Facebook or Linktree profile, for example, there’s a good chance you can still find their Instagram account.
Just follow that link and see if their Instagram profile is mentioned anywhere. Although Facebook might not be the most reliable location, their Linktree account definitely has their Instagram profile.
Send them a DM
If all this research seems juvenile and not worth it, we understand. Everyone likes directness, more so when it results in saving precious time. A straightforward message where you simply let them know what you think is a perfect way to command respect and display maturity.
However, remember that it doesn’t have to be strictly professional; you are not aiming to make them feel like this is a business transaction. Remember to insert politeness, humor, and warmth into your message to really make it hit home.
You could start by telling them how much you liked their content and how it resonates with you. Proceed by asking for their Instagram profile so that you can see more of them and connect with them better.
Another important piece of texting advice that is widely spoken by hardly implemented is the significance of time between replies. Some people reply quickly, which often makes them come across as desperate. Others take too long, making the whole conversation cold and awkward.
As a general rule of thumb, don’t take longer or less than six to eight minutes to reply to a text.
Look them up on Instagram
Let’s say you’re in a completely different scenario where you can’t contact them anyway.
In such cases, the best way to proceed is to look them up on Instagram. You can use their real name or their username on TikTok. You’ll see them there if they have an account and haven’t blocked you on Instagram.
In the end
As we end this blog, let’s recap all we’ve discussed today.
The internet is a big place with users from around the world. Most internet users have their lives and content mapped out across several social media platforms, waiting for their breakthrough into the creator economy.
Finding someone on the internet today is an extremely easy task. Just look them up on three of the most popular social media platforms (TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook), and you’ll find them on at least one.
If you’d rather be direct than mess around, that’s totally reasonable. You can also just send them a DM telling them that you like their content/personality and would love to connect over Instagram. If our blog has helped you, don’t forget to tell us all about it in the comments below!
