TikTok users are in a panic after many noticed that their profiles aren’t showing any videos — as if they haven’t uploaded any content yet. Here’s what we know about this glitch so far.

TikTok is arguably one of the biggest social media platforms on the net.

In fact, the viral video app became the world’s most-searched website in 2021, outranking giants like the Google search engine.

However, like most social media apps, TikTok is prone to the occasional bug from time to time — and it’s latest glitch is giving users a fright.

For a while, it was unclear what’s causing this widespread glitch, with searches trending high for the “no videos yet” message.

In fact, some users aren’t seeing anyone’s videos whatsoever. “TikTok isn’t showing me anyone’s videos at all,” one netizen tweeted. “When i go to anyone’s profile, they’re saying, ‘No videos yet.'”

“No videos yet,” one user wrote, attaching a photo of their blank profile page. “I think TikTok is broken.”

Is TikTok Down?

It seems the glitch can be traced to a TikTok outage that occurred on the same day.

Data from DownDetector shows a major outage for the social media platform that began at 4 AM and lasted to 7 AM, although some users are still reporting issues with the site at the time of writing.
