TikTok Video Length Expanded to 10 Minutes

TikTok Video Length Expanded to 10 Minutes

TikTok

TikTok has recently announced that it has drastically expanded the maximum length on videos its users can upload to 10 minutes. This is a massive increase from the increase to three-minute videos it introduced last July. Before this the maximum time for videos was only a measly 60 seconds.

TikTok’s spectacular rise to popularity was heavily motivated by the platforms apparent never-ending stream of short and snappy videos, which caught the attention of users. However, TikTok have been trialing extended video lengths for quite some time, believing it will help bring in an older audience and allow its creators more time to produce top quality content.

In response to TikTok’s rise, many of its competitors actually sought to reduce their maximum video time to match the much shorter TikTok video length. However, now TikTok is taking the opposite route and expanding its maximum video length. So how does TikTok video length compare to its competitors?

YouTube

YouTube videos tend to be longer in length than TikTok videos. The maximum video length a user can upload depends on whether the user is verified or not. If the user’s YouTube account is verified they can upload a video which is up to 12 hours long. If the account is not verified then they are limited to 15 minute video length. Therefore, verified accounts have much longer video lengths on YouTube compared to the TikTok video length of 10 minutes.

YouTube Shorts

YouTube Shorts was launched in September 2020, reportedly as a response to TikTok’s shorter videos. YouTube shorts can be up to 60 seconds long, which is very short in comparison to the new TikTok video length of 10 minutes.

Instagram Reels

Instagram Reels, which was also launched in 2020, have a maximum length of 60 seconds, which was also the original maximum TikTok video length.

Is Tiktok Worth It?

Is Tiktok Worth It?

TikTok has been skyrocketing in popularity. With over 300 million users, it has become one of the most popular social media platforms, but is it worth it? This blog post will answer all your questions about TikTok and help you decide if this app is worth your time or not. From the features to how the app works, here's everything you need to know about TikTok.

IF YOU WANT TO INCREASE YOUR AUDIENCE

If you want to increase your social media following, TikTok is the perfect platform for you. It has over 300 million users, and it's growing quickly. The app is great for brands looking to bypass traditional marketing methods to reach a wider audience.

However, when you're trying to grow your audience through TikTok, you must take advantage of trending hashtags. This will help you get in front of more people and increase your chances of being seen by people interested in your content or products. If you don't know how to use hashtags on TikTok, here's a rundown:

*Tap the hashtag button at the top of the screen

*Search for hashtags that are related to your brand or industry

*Don't confuse this with an ordinary hashtag; these are designed specifically for brands

*Use them sparingly; too many hashtags can come across as spammy

*You should also consider creating your unique hashtag that ties together all your brand-related posts

NOT ABLE TO INCREASE FOLLOWERS ON OTHER PLATFORMS

Why would you want to use TikTok? The video app is all about quick, short videos. If you're looking for a platform to increase your followers on other platforms, TikTok isn't the answer. This is because it's not possible to link your social media accounts with TikTok. Also, it doesn't allow you to update your profile either. So if you're looking for a way to get more followers and likes on your other platforms, this probably isn't the best option.

YOU'VE ALREADY USED OTHER PLATFORMS FOR VIDEO POSTING

If you're looking for a platform where you can post videos, TikTok isn't it. You can get by uploading short videos to other platforms like Instagram or Twitter.
