TikTok has introduced a feature that tells users why a specific video has been suggested on their For You Page. Here’s how to use it.
For most people, the majority of the content they consume on TikTok comes from their For You Page, which is an algorithm-based feed that allows you to scroll endlessly through content that has been recommended specifically to you.
The For You Page can differ massively from person to person, and depending on the content you seek out and creators you interact with on the app, this will change the videos that appear on your FYP over time.

So, if you’ve been left wondering why certain content keeps popping up on your feed, here’s how to use the feature.
