How to get featured on TikTok FYP: a case study in action

One of the most effective ways for TikTok users to go viral on the app is by getting featured on TikTok’s own “For You” page. People start to wonder if they will have any control over which posts will be featured in this area or if they can do this themselves. It turns out that there are still many tactics you can use to get your content onto your targeted audience’s For You page, but it all comes down to a larger audience.

You want more traffic coming from your For You Page than your profile or following if you make TikToks for the public. I have a case study in mind that might be relatable. The kind of changes I would personally like to see is an increase in the availability of creators on other platforms, Bandcamp-style, but influencers and the like in addition to those who are struggling musicians.

Others may have an interest in that same dynamic, for money when someone listens to their music. PhoneArena.com reports TikTok has announced its all-in-one music platform, SoundOn.

Quick hint: listing a ko-fi link in your profile may get you a few bucks.

Although the pandemic shook my confidence in my ability to predict the future, I remain of the opinion that social media generates positivity.

I mean, if you’re inclined to start faking Tourette’s Syndrome because of TikTok’s algorithm, okay. My understanding is that Meta (“Facebook”) is aggressively competing with TikTok with Instagram Reels, but I haven’t seen that service, so I’m not sure how it works.

TikTok at the end of April 2020: Remixing ideas

Meet Bella Poarch. In addition to having over 66 million followers, Bella Poarch is one of the most popular TikTok creators of all time. She joined TikTok in April 2020, and a video of her lip-synching went viral. Her career has been fraught with controversy at times, and she just released her debut single “Build a Bitch”.

Originally from the Philippines, Bella Poarch’s birthday is February 8, 1997. She experienced childhood in the Philippines and later moved to Hawaii. On August 17, 2020, Bella Poarch uploaded her “M to the B,” lip-syncing Millie B, which caused Bella’s popularity to explode.

Did you know that?

Rapper Millie B is from Britain. A fellow grime artist, Sophie Aspin, is the target of the song’s joke. In 2016, Sophie Aspin and Millie B changed the grime scene forever in Blackpool, a large town and seaside resort in Lancashire, England.

A grime song features a very low-pitched bassline, a minimal rhythm, and a vocal by an MC. Here’s the point. Half a billion people watched Poarch’s face bob up and down for what reason?

Quite simply, these are the logical endpoint of the entertainment algorithm on TikTok, which is young people who focus their conventional attractiveness in easily repeatable formats.

Your TikTok may do well if you engage with commenters and encourage them to continue commenting. By the by, assuming that your video is becoming famous online on TikTok when you are answering, do not go excessively quick, or the algorithm will impede you.

Bella has a Bible verse, “Love drives out fear, but perfect love does not fear,” tattooed on her chest. John 4:18 says that “perfect love casts out fear.”

The whole verse says this: “There is no fear in love. But perfect love casts out fear because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”

I am not sure if God sent Bella to TikTok, but she definitely outgrew her circumstances. Bella is reportedly single.

Viral TikToks are confidently followed up: Bella’s curls

Bella debuted her curly hair on Instagram at the beginning of 2021. Alongside two selfies showing her long curly hair, she wrote, “My natural curls.” Social media is flexing at its best.

People generally signal others to convey status or to influence them. A thing like Bella’s hair, before she straightens it, is exhilarating for her audience because she is such a grand influencer. She additionally showed up in the music video for “Cirque,” by American vocalist Sub Urban.

In the video, Bella plays Sub Urban’s love interest in a 1920’s era Burlesque bar. Traditional burlesque combines comedy and provocativeness, featuring choruses of female dancers, singing, and slapstick humour. But since its invention in the 17th century, it has evolved.

TikTok is making social media so successful for so many people. It is alternately cute and funny. Of course, TikTok has now become under scrutiny for reasons similar to the inquiry of whether Facebook is hard on young people’s mental health.

A whistleblower, Frances Haugen, made national news when she revealed that Facebook had conducted research into the subject of its potential for addiction and harm to children and younger users. It made an unpleasant reality for Facebook, and the ripple effect (negative, in my opinion) continues.

While TikTok may remain a champion of short-term videos, it is still a competition that will improve for user-created short videos. It’s kind of trendy to be anxious and weird on the Internet, at least among young people. However, I can manage that quota competently by myself, so I don’t have to compete there.

TikTok users come in all shapes and sizes. Good luck, whether you pursue YouTube Shorts, Instagram Reels, TikTok, or anywhere else. Let this not be God’s Final Message to his Creation.

11 Perfect (And True) Loves Found and Lost

It’s Valentine’s Day, and in the spirit of the occasion, a spot of research has led me to Well-known and Famous Couples in History, by Madhura Pandit.  It’s an expository piece from which I chose ten of the most dynamic romantic figures ever known, in Madhura’s estimation.  I added an obvious eleventh, with thanks to scholaradvisor.com for the example.

Nine of these people are based in history, and the last two are the stuff of legend.

Historical Couples

Julius Caesar and Cleopatra and Mark Antony

Cleopatra and Mark Antony are both associated with Julius Caesar.  Mark Antony discovered beguilement with Cleopatra’s greatness.  Cleopatra, in turn, might have discovered a feeling of strength with him, since he was getting to be a standout in Rome.

She found in him the chance to reestablish old wonder.  Mark Antony had attributes not the same as that of Julius Caesar, yet the equivalent political stature.

The gathering after Julius Caesar’s demise demonstrated scented blooms in Cleopatra’s boat, where she dressed like the Roman goddess Venus when they met in 41 BCE.  The dinner awed Mark Antony in that he needed to outperform such marvelous planning; however, he hopelessly fizzled.

With extraordinary cleverness, he figured out how to keep considerate about it.

Cleopatra, on the other hand, could engage Mark Antony by being next to him constantly.

Napoleon and Josephine

Napoleon Bonaparte and Josephine were hitched when he was a general in the military, and she a rich widow.  They went separate ways as Josephine couldn’t deliver a beneficiary, and Napoleon remarried.

Despite enormous ambition, Napoleon’s life ended in exile.

John Lennon and Yoko Ono

As the music career of The Beatles gave way to solo careers for the four musicians who were members, no one knew that John Lennon had scant little time left alive.

That being said, John Lennon and Yoko Ono arranged a seven-day “Bed-In for Peace,” in the Presidential Suite of the Hilton lodging in Amsterdam, as a challenge against war and savagery on the planet, March 1969.

Lennon’s life ended when he was shot in the street outside his home in New York City.

Mary Shelley and Percy Bysshe Shelley

Mary Shelley and Percy Bysshe Shelley had set their sights on enjoying a weekend writing competition, to see who could write the more impressive story, when Mary dreamed of events she would novelize as what ultimately became the book, Frankenstein.  Mary Shelley’s novel would be instrumental in science fiction.  In future years, many times various filmmakers would adapt it for the silver screen.

Frankenstein probably exceeded the talents of her husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley.  Percy Bysshe Shelley later succumbed to madness.

Legendary Couples

Lancelot and Guinevere

Sir Lancelot was a knight in King Arthur’s Round Table, who went gaga for Queen Guinevere.  Their mystery prompted terrible capital punishments for the two, divided the Knights, and debilitated Arthur’s kingdom.

It is not known whether Arthur’s kingdom ever existed, but it has been written about for centuries.

Adam and Eve

In the book of Genesis in The Bible, there is an account of The Lord creating our world and making Adam and Eve the first people who would live here.  The lives of Adam and Eve were idyllic, until Satan, in the guise of a snake, led Eve to eat an apple from The Lord’s Tree of Knowledge, filling her consciousness with all manner of realizations.  Eve quickly had Adam do the same.

Enraged by the betrayal, The Lord declared that all of man would from then on endure untold hardship.

Many of the devout feel that these events occurred roughly four thousand years ago, in the Garden of Eden.
