How to change Your TikTok Interests

TikTok usually selects your interests based on your interactions with various videos over the last 48 hours.

However, use the methods listed below if you are new to TikTok or an old user but want to update your For You page to reflect your desired interests.

1. Open the TikTok app and click on the Profile option from the homepage.

2. On your profile page, tap the three lines or three dots button in the top right corner to go to the settings and privacy options.

3. Select ‘content preferences’ under the ‘content & activity’ category in settings.

4. To update your interests, select the attractions you want to add. Once you’ve selected all the attractions you want to add, click Save at the bottom of the page.

Those new interests have been added to your profile. You should, however, go to your cellphone settings, then the app, and then Choose TikTok and delete its cache.

On TikTok, I don’t see a Content Preferences option.

You must choose a language in this situation, and TikTok will provide you your For You page content based on that language. It will select geo-locations of countries where your desired language is spoken and supply content based on that.

I Do Not Want to See Content From a Specific Creator

This is not difficult; go to your For You page and say, if you don’t like a specific video or creator, press and hold on to that video; a little window will appear; pick more> then. Hide videos from this user by selecting Hide videos from this person.

I’d Like to See a Specific Type of Content in My Feed.

If you like a dance-type video, as you go through your For You Page, click like on such videos, comment on them, and share them on other social media; if you don’t want to share the video, simply leave it in the draft by pressing the share button.

You can go back and watch that video again, and TikTok’s AI will detect your interest based on the number of views, and it will begin providing your chosen content in the future; but, if you spend more time on other sorts of content, TikTok will switch back to your previously watched content categories.

Finally, go to TikTok search and type your interest there; if you discover a video of your interest, click it and play; this strategy will quickly transform your interest in TikTok.

What exactly is TikTok’s FOR YOU Page?

Your For You page is based on your interests, and TikTok’s algorithm presents those videos for you to watch based on your app use.


TikTok’s app is constantly changing, and their main goal is to keep you on their app by providing you content that keeps you glued to their platform rather than what you want to see, because the more time you spend on their app, the more adds they can serve you and make money.
