How TikTok’s Friends Tab Works And Why Discover Fans Aren’t Happy

For those yet to encounter the Friends tab, it replaces the Discover tab in the menu at the bottom of the app. A change that has not gone unnoticed by users. In the same Twitter post confirming the expanded rolling out of the feature, many of the replies made clear that this was not a feature they wanted nor one that TikTok even needed. Similar comments were also made on various Reddit posts (like this one) three months ago when the feature first started showing up. Considering TikTok already has a ‘Following’ page which brings together videos from accounts they follow, the addition of the Friends tab is being viewed as pointless and unnecessary. Not to mention, one that removes the ability for users to actually see and find trending and popular videos through the Discover feed.

While these are valid points, it would seem that TikTok is making the change to try and increase engagement between accounts, especially as the Friends tab makes it super easy to connect with real-world contacts and Facebook Friends. While the removal of the Discovery button does impact on the way videos will be found in the future, the option to use the search button to search for popular hashtags and trending videos is still there. Not to mention, TikTok’s For You page will remain an easy way to find new videos to watch.
