With over 800 million active users, TikTok is surprisingly gaining popularity as a video sharing platform like YouTube. However, recently, there have been a buzz about Alt TikTok and Straight TikTok. This got me wondering, is there another TikTok different from the one I know? So, I made a research to find out. Here are my findings.
Alt TikTok and Straight TikTok: The Difference
From my research, I was made to understand that the Alt TikTok and Straight TikTok that is buzzing isn’t different TikTok application. Rather, it is the categorizing of the TikTok contents into 2 by users. Here is what I mean.
When you fire up your TikTok app, the first page you will see is called the For You page. If you are a new TikTok user, the page contains trending TikTok videos in your area. But if you have used TikTok previously, then the For You page will show list of trending TikTok videos based on your previous view habits.
The point I am trying to help you understand is, the For You page contains trending TikTok videos. These trending videos are what is now categorized as Straight TikTok. So, if you love watching these videos, you are a Straight TikToker.
Alt TikTok on the other hand is videos which TikTok does not see as trending enough to be placed on your For You page, but you will love if you watch them. In another words, Alt TikTok are videos which does not follow the TikTok trends, but till appreciated by TikToker (TikTok users) who discover them.
So, as I have earlier mentioned, the buzz about Alt TikTok and Straight TikTok is not about 2 separate TikTok app, but the categorizing of TikTok videos into 2.

Now, which type of TikTok user are you, Alt TikToker or Straight TikToker? This is what the Alt TikTok quiz is geared towards helping you find out.
