How to Follow Someone on TikTok

You see all those cute dogs or cats on TikTok and want to get their content regularly. Whether it’s Layla the Boxer or some other dog, you never want to miss out on what they publish. You can do that by following them; it’ll only take a tap. Ensure that you’re on the For You feed, and when you come across an account you want to follow, you’ll see a plus icon below the profile picture. Tap on that, and you’ve started to follow that account. You’ll know it was done correctly because you won’t see that plus icon on the accounts you’re following.

When you do, it’ll turn into a button where you can send that account a hello. What if you want to follow an account, but it hasn’t shown up on your feed? You can always search for that account by using the search bar at the top right. The sooner you follow the account, the sooner you’ll see its content. If that account has enabled Profile Views, they will know you visited their profile.
