Has anyone detected a change in the algorithm as of about a week or two ago?
How it was before: My videos would typically go viral the following day I posted them, piling up 1-2 million within a day.
How it is now: Now my viral videos take much longer to get up to the first 1-2 million views. Eventually they get there, but it takes about a week now as opposed to a day.
Possible explanation. I’m not sure if this is account specific or not. It has been happening to me and two other TikTok’ers who started at the same time a couple months ago. All of our accounts have half a million to over a million followers. Thus I’m not sure if this is an algorithm change or if our reach is being limited and spread out over time due to our accounts having gotten big already.
Any thoughts or has anyone noticed the same thing? It really seems that the reach has stayed similar, BUT the length of time to reach accounts has increased (at least for me and my friends’ accounts)
I’ve noticed the same. I’ve heard it may because they’re trying to convince investors that the platform is viable for advertising by highlighting the same, extremely successful videos and privileging them above the rest… I hope it’s not another platform gone the way of Instagram…
I’m surprised you didn’t notice the change in the Algorithm. I’m creating a new topic to share what I’ve learned about. In short, the Instant Push has been slowed (there’s now a cold period for TikTok to learn content better before pushing it out). It explains the exact pattern I’ve been noticing in my videos. Those videos that I mentioned when I created this topic with just 100k views are now at 1-3M. Took a while, but it got there. That’s part of the new algorithm.
