TikTok Text-Based Content 

02 August 2023

TikTok has added text-based content as an expansion of the options of content TikTok offers. Although videos are the most prominent type of content see, we have also started to see photo carousel posts, duets, lives, and now the newest type is text-based. 

This new feature is comparable to the text-only story option on Instagram. On TikTok, you will be able to post a full screen of text where you can add stickers, sounds, and locations, enable comments, and allow duets. You can also alter the background color and type up to 1,000s characters. 

Now that you know the features offered within TikTok’s text-based content, let’s dive into why we would use this option.
