It will be possible to know which follower has seen a published video, but only for seven days
In exchange, the followers who have viewed the videos of a content creator will also be able to know if the creator, in turn, has seen their content, thereby establishing a two-way monitoring that, yes, only operates when both users follow each other.
A TikTok spokesperson said that these features are currently only being tested among a small number of specially selected users and that no plans are yet in place for their widespread availability.
This feature also has a limitation and that is that you can only access the information on which followers have viewed the video for the next seven days to its publication.
Finally, this possibility of accessing this information on who has viewed the published content will entail an extension of another existing function, although it is only available to users over 16 years of age and with more than 5,000 followers: the ability to know who has visited a user’s profile on TikTok.
Users who have this possibility can verify it if when accessing their own profile they have an icon that represents an eye and that is shown in the upper right part of the screen.
Clicking on this icon accesses a section that shows who has visited the profile in the last 30 days. As will happen with the test function that allows knowing which followers have viewed a published video, activating the option related to the user profile also allows the rest of the users to verify that they have accessed their respective profiles.
