How To See the Count of Shares on Your TikTok Video
As we already mentioned, TikTok does not allow any of its users to see who shared their TikTok videos. However, you can know the number of people who shared a particular video.
Knowing the number of shares your video has can still help you if you want to determine the kind of videos to make to draw traffic to your page.
For doing so, you need to upgrade your account to TikTok Business account. Within the three steps below, we walk you through the process.
- You will find the settings page when you tap on your Profile icon.
- Then, you press the three vertical lines at the top to the right-hand side of your screen.
- Tap on Settings and privacy.
- On the settings page, press Manage My Account.
- Then, click Switch To Business Account and continue with questions until finished.
Your account will immediately change to a TikTok Business account, and you will have access to the Business account insights screen where you can view the analytics of your videos:
- Tap on the three vertical lines.
- Select Business suite.
- Click Analytics and start exploring!
