Here's how to organize your favorite TikTok videos

You'll get lost in the "Recommended for You" page when you find a salad recipe that looks so delicious. You double click on it and convince yourself that when you want to watch it, you will refer to your favorite video to find it. Just, you like a lot of videos, but soon that recipe gets lost in the sea of ​​skin care routines and fun facts about dolphins. This video may be lost forever. If only you saved TikTok to your favorites, you'd now be stuffing a bunch of green goddess goodness into your mouth.

If you tend to like TikToks and want to visit again, then you should take advantage of another feature: add TikToks to your "Favorites" and then sort them into collections. While liking a video is a great way to interact with the content (and tell your "For You" page that yes, you want to see more weird Elmo videos), it won't help you find it again - even if you watch it So many times because you couldn't help but laugh.

Once you get into the habit of saving and organizing your favorites, you'll be able to refer to them quickly, which is especially helpful if you're constantly scrolling late at night and often forget what you've seen. Is this a fever dream or do train people really exist? What’s a great leftover recipe you want to try this weekend? You can make different folders, which means you can be specific to your needs—one for soups, one for salads, another for conspiracy theories or fashion inspiration, or what have you.

Add videos to favorites on TikTok

Tik Tok

When you come across a video you want to save for later, a long press on the center of the screen will trigger a pop-up with an "Add to Favorites" option. If you don't want to place your video in a specific category just yet, you can keep scrolling and stay on the "Recommended for you" page. If you want to edit your favorites later, click on your profile and then click the Favorites ribbon to the right of the Edit Profile button. You can then organize your videos into collections.

Select or create a collection

Tik Tok

To sort videos in real time, tap the second popup at the bottom of the screen that prompts you to add videos to a new collection. Here you can add videos to a pre-existing folder (if you have this feature set up) or enter a new collection name such as Dogs, Recipes, Babies, etc.

Search favorites

When you're ready to return to your favorites to find your saved videos, go to your profile, click the Favorites ribbon, and view all your collections. If you search for a term in the Explore page and save a favorite with the same name, these videos will also appear. If you don't find a video you think you've saved, check out the photos you like by clicking the heart icon above the grid on your profile page. To add a great video to your favorites, just long press and follow the prompts to move it to your favorites.
