Do you check who viewed your social media profile? Do you check who liked and commented on your posts? There is no wrong in doing so; we all do that. It’s common. But do all social media platforms allow you to see who viewed your content? Well, some don’t.
If you’re a content creator, these insights are much-needed to you, right?
As the form of content evolves, you might want some added insights on what your audiences are interested in seeing.
One form of content that users welcome is video content. Platforms that highly promote this type of content are Instagram and TikTok. However, we all know TikTok is the one that welcomes short video content widely when compared to others.
Basically, TikTok is a short video-sharing social networking app that allows anyone to create and share entertaining, comedy, and lip-syncing videos to a large number of people. You can add music, filters, and a few other adornments to your video to make it more attractive.
TikTok has allowed many creative people worldwide to capture their enjoyable moments where some videos are funny, engaging, and downright cringeworthy.
Moreover, the platform facilitates and makes the content creators’ jobs more accessible by providing analytics.
The TikTok team is constantly trying to enhance the user experience and attract more audiences to the platform. One of the recent updates that TikTok has rolled out is enabling users to see who viewed their profile.
So, if you’re a TikTok user and desperately want to know if this feature is available for you, yay! You’re in the right place.
In this blog, we’ll discuss if it is possible to see who viewed your TikTok profile; if it is, we’ll discuss how to do that and, if not, what we can do about it. And in the end, we will suggest to you some really cool tools you should use if you’re a TikTok user.
How to See Who Viewed Your TikTok Profile
Unfortunately, you can’t see who viewed your TikTok. After the recent update, you can’t see the profile name of people who have seen your profile as they are completely anonymous. TikTok has decided to keep this information confidential.
But if you are using an older version of TikTok, you will receive a profile viewer notification that will display a list of people who viewed your profile.
As you can see, the older version of the TikTok app offers a convenient way to see who visited your profile. While other platforms provide only the visitor count, it actually shows the usernames of all those who viewed your profile.
But you have no way to know the time and frequency of notification updates definitively. Still, the general observation is that your profile views are updated after 24 hours.
If you check the visitors today, you can let 24 hours pass before checking the visitors. You will still be able to view all new visitors. If you observe a single profile frequently, you can infer that you have started building a following.
Why Can’t You See Recent Profile Views Notification on TikTok?
Sometimes, people can’t see the “Recent Profile Views” notification. If you also experience the same, there can be two reasons for that.
One, there is some technical glitch. Uninstall and reinstall the app to see if that solves your problem.
If you still can’t see the notification, then check whether you have set your profile to “private” mode. If yes, then you will not be able to see the profile visitor notification. This notification is available only to users with a public profile.
Follow these steps to set your account public and enable profile visitor statistics:
- Open the TikTok app and tap on the Me icon.
- Tap on the More option.
- Go to Account and select Privacy & safety.
- Under Discoverability, turn off a Private account. Also, enable allow others to find me.
- Now your account is visible to all users. They can now share your videos and help you gain popularity.
Does TikTok Tell You Who Viewed Your Videos?
Unfortunately, TikTok doesn’t tell you who viewed your videos as they are completely anonymous. However, it does offer the number of people who viewed your video. This number is significant for you to ensure that your videos are gaining popularity.
Unlike other platforms, Tiktok doesn’t stop you from viewing your profile visitors. It offers a straightforward way to do that. It still doesn’t show the profiles of those who visited your videos.
It does provide the number of views on each video thought. You can carefully analyze your profile views and video views to gain deeper insights into the videos you are sharing with the world.
