2021 was a pivotal year for many social networks. For its part, TikTok continues its meteoric growth and brings new functionality for users and creators of content. The latter will soon be able to receive tips from their followers.
TIP YOUR FAVORITE CONTENT CREATOR ON TIKTOK
Donation systems have particularly appealed to many content creators. At the same time, many social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and platforms like Twitch have adopted a more or less different donation system so that users can reward their favorite content creators.
However, something fun was missing, an on-the-go donation system, and that, TikTok has just integrated into its platform. Effectively, users will therefore be able to tip a creator. The latter can therefore receive it conventionally with the name of the person, but also anonymously.
A TIP WITHOUT COMMISSION
In her video, content creator Jera Bean, who took a screenshot, lets it be known that all money sent by a follower or any other user will go to the creator in full. This information shows that the social network TikTok will receive 0 cents for the money received, which is good news for creators on the platform.
However, to be eligible for this feature, and therefore, to be able to offer it to his followers, the creator must respect certain rules. Once all of your accounts are in good standing, a button will appear for the user to tip either a $ 5, $ 10, or $ 15 personalized tip.
Other social networks are expected to release similar functionality in the coming months, generally, they shamelessly copy the functionality to keep their user. In the meantime, TikTok is not waiting for anyone and still intends to break into the field of social networks while collecting new users for the end of 2021.
