TikTok is one of the hottest apps on the planet right now. The youth especially, have been really crazy over this video content platform. You must have seen a plethora of video skits and other viral videos originating from TikTok. It’s been reported that currently, TikTok plans to have a redesign in mind. The redesign aims to give users many more ways to personalize and engage with their profiles.
The profile designs seem to look really similar to that of Instagram. Borrowing or replicating ideas has been very prevalent among social networks. Instagram famously took over Snapchat’s entire model with its “Stories” feature. Well, if a model turns out to be successful, replicating that success seems to be a very logical choice.
TikTok became the third most-downloaded non-gaming app in 2019. Its success can be attributed due to many reasons. First, it’s incredibly convenient to use. Second, its a very unique, niched app that is seemingly made for today’s younger generation. The app aligns well with the short attention span and there are a variety of video genres ranging from memes, musical spinoffs, motivational content and many more. It has been also found out that they are using advanced AI algorithms that display customized video feeds that cater to the preferences of the users.
If TikTok plans to move forward with this redesign concept, we feel fairly optimistic that it would turn out to be successful. The profile redesign could very well be just one among the many other plans they have to take this app forward.
