TikTok develops a new tool called Shoutouts. Every day, in every corner of the planet a content creator is born for the different social media platforms. The reality is that most of them have excellent material to offer to their target audience. So, applications like TikTok are looking for a way to generate money themselves, and that the user also gets a piece of the pie.
What is TikTok Shoutouts?
The new tool in TikTok called Shoutouts will help content creators generate more money. At first, when you get to know the concept of how it works, it will seem like another controversial social network. However, according to Phone Arena’s explanation, they have marked differences. So, let’s learn what this mysterious feature is all about.
How does TikTok Shoutouts work?
The process is simple. A user requests a video from another user, which could be up to three minutes long. About time, it is known that TikTok seeks to increase the length of the audiovisual material in the app. But back to the explanation, after the request, and the payment that the requesting user will pay with the app’s currency, he will receive the content in his direct messages.
At first, glance, as it stands, it seems like an ideal paradise for those who are dedicated to the creation of exclusive content on the controversial platform known as OnlyFans. However, it appears that it will have certain restrictions.
The requested video will not arrive immediately once payment is made. According to the platform’s developers, it will take approximately three days. During this process, the material will be reviewed to ensure that it complies with the company’s policies.
In this way, users will be able to request personalized videos from their favorite influencers. The tool seems ideal for special birthday greetings, songs with special dedications, and all those kinds of situations.
The portal says that the TikTok function is already available in Turkey and Dubai. It also adds a screenshot of the first reports of this tool. However, for now, they have no information as to when it will be implemented in Latin America.
Instagram has something similar in mind
Instagram says that when a normal user comes across an exclusive story, Instagram tells them that “only members” can see the content.
The company also appears to prevent people from trying to take screenshots of what they see. At the same time, it encourages creators to save their exclusive stories in highlights, allowing new members to see something when they subscribe.
