Over the four years of its existence, TikTok has become a popular social platform where users communicate, share content and can earn real money. Working with the application is not difficult if you know what TikTok limits exist for specific actions..
The article deals with this topic so that users are not surprised when the system blocks their actions due to repeated repetition.
What are the limits in TikTok
When you violate the number of restrictions on TikTok, the system sends you an alert. However, this doesn't happen sometimes, so it's important to keep track of how many times you repeat a particular action..
Here are the common restrictions that users face:
- You can change your username once every 30 days.
- A user can start using the application when he turns 13.
- Live broadcasts are launched when the number of subscribers in the profile reaches 1000 people. Read more in our blog on how to start a live stream on Tik Tok.
- If you want to get the “Gaining Popularity” verification, you need at least 50,000 followers. You can get the "Popular author" mark with 200,000 subscribers.
- If you want to activate a verified account, gain an audience of at least 1 million. Read more in the blog how to get the Tik Tok tick for free.
- If you are banned or you deleted your profile, you can restore it within 30 days. Then he will disappear from the platform completely. Read more on what to do if you are blocked on Tik Tok.
Otherwise, the standard restrictions on the site are the number of characters for messages, descriptions and comments. They are indicated in the field before entering text.
Limits on messages in TikTok
On social networks, there is a limit on the number of letters. On VKontakte, you need to enter a captcha to continue the correspondence, and on Instagram you will have to wait a period of time..
TikTok operates on the same principle: if you write a lot of messages, the function will become unavailable for a specific period. However, there are no exact limits - sometimes 10 messages are enough for different users, and in other situations 20. It is better to do intervals of 10-30 minutes so that your actions are not considered spam.
Limits of subscriptions and likes in TikTok
The system perceives massliking and mass following poorly. If the actions are not classified as drawing attention to the account for the sake of reciprocal subscriptions and likes, moderators may think that this is an automatic cheat. Then your profile will be immediately sent to a shadow ban or blocking.
To avoid this, you need to know the limitations. For likes, they start from 500 repetitions, and for subscriptions - from 200. The indicators are floating, so the system can restrict access even earlier. Try to like and subscribe gradually, intermittently.
How spam is punished on TikTok
Spam is a direct violation of community guidelines, but not as serious as promoting or posting 18+ content. If the moderators notice that you are saving and violating the restrictions, they can send the profile to the shadow ban. If you repeat the action of such a plan, a temporary blockage will occur, and then a complete one.
You can avoid punishment. To do this, do not violate the rules and limits of the platform. If the first two punishments can be ignored because they are temporary, it is difficult to get rid of the eternal blockage. You will have to write to Tik Tok technical support, wait for a decision, collect confirmations, but this does not guarantee that the block will be removed.
TikTok video restriction
To post a video clip, you must adjust its length. It is 1 minute maximum. Otherwise, the system will not allow you to publish or cut the video.
In the application, you can publish many videos per day in the feed - there are no restrictions in this regard. Here the procedure depends on how long you have. It makes no sense to upload a lot of content to the platform, because moderators perceive all repeated actions with suspicion. As a result, suspicious activity may reduce the chances of getting featured.
