How do you post stories on TikTok?

TikTok is rolling out its new story feature for app-loving users.

It's clear that the company is competing for user attention with Instagram.

The story feature on TikTok will be quite similar to Instagram's – with content lasting 24 hours before it disappears – but with its own mini twists.

Users will be able to see how many people viewed their stories and even add comments, but unlike on Instagram, they won't be able to see which users viewed their stories.

“Currently, we’re expanding a pilot test, which provides creators with additional formats to bring their creative ideas to life for the TikTok community,” a spokesperson told Tech Crunch.

"To post a story, click the 'post' button on the bottom center navigation bar of the app. Then, you can scroll to a “quick” camera mode, which lets you post a photo or a video to your story.

"These videos have the same creation options as normal TikTok videos, allowing you to reply to comments, use filters and more.

"Photos don’t have quite the same functionality — you don’t need a recording timer for a photo, since, you know, it’s a photo — but you can still add music and effects to photos," explained Tech Crunch.

How do I get more views on TikTok?

There are a number of ways to increase your visibility on TikTok.

For prime optimization of the video-sharing app, users should remember to include the following with their videos:

  • Hashtags: By including relevant hashtags with each post, others who watch videos with the same hashtag will likely see yours
  • Captions: When writing a caption, make sure to try and keep it related to your video – this will help the algorithm know who to share the video with
  • Keep it short: When a video is too long, many users often scroll past – keeping it between 10 and 60 seconds is practical
  • Trending sounds: Focus on a trending song or sound to help your video be seen by people

Who owns TikTok?

The video-sharing app is owned by Beijing-based technology company ByteDance, founded by the Chinese billionaire entrepreneur, Zhang Yiming.

The 38-year-old was named one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in 2019, who described him as "the top entrepreneur in the world".

Yiming founded his own internet tech firm ByteDance in 2012, which developed apps and news aggregation services, including TikTok.

TikTok allows users to share up to 60 seconds of video – either creating their own content.

Users often creak lip-syncing videos to popular songs, comedy sketches, or film scenes.
