What is TikTok?

Created by Beijing-based company Bytedance, TikTok is essentially a combination of a variety of popular social media platforms, such as Instagram, Twitter, and Musical.ly. 

What is TikTok Verified?

To be eligible for TikTok verified badge, creators must be approved by TikTok. They do not share applicants' personal information with other companies, brands or platforms without their written consent.

You can't make sales directly through your profile or TikTok in-app messaging or comments. You can, however, comment on other people's profiles and make purchases from the app's in-app messaging or messenger.

Why do I need a TikTok Verified Badge?

According to their website, TikTok is a platform where the best creators from around the world can share a short, creative, or colourful video. Their goal is to connect and bring communities together through innovative entertainment. From their community of creators, TikTok creates a set of branded hashtags that you can use on your video, share it with TikTok's community, and encourage engagement.

How do I get a TikTok Verified Badge?

According to the TikTok team, the verified badge is "a special honour from us to you that lets you show the world that you are a TikTok member and love TikTok." The badge is "your little seal of approval that lets the world know that you are a part of the TikTok community."

TikTok is only verifying these badges within a few weeks of a user first gaining one, so those who can't wait can always request one. That being said, the process for verifying your TikTok verified badge is very simple. All you have to do is fill out a few basic personal details and click the submit button, which will help show the world that you're a part of the TikTok community and a real person, rather than just another creepy blue square in a sea of white ones.

With so many apps competing for the user's attention, brand recognition and online engagement are of paramount importance. These apps also present the opportunity to build brand loyalty and effectively break the ice with an audience of young people and users of all backgrounds and ages.
