5. The Tiktok platform has a "Following" and "For you" tab. In the "Following" tab you will get to see the content of the people you are following. Note, that this is not in any chronological order but rather popularity order.

On the "For you" tab, you will be exposed to content and users based on the videos you watch or engage with. The more you engage with the Tiktok content the more targeted the suggested content will be. Bear in mind, that people spend more time browsing the "For you" page.
