TikTok creators rejoice!
The world-wide popular platform has announced that they will be implementing new features to give influencers credit for creating trends. Over the last few years, the nature of the app has left creators in a bit of a lul with no easy way to claim credit for their creations, which in turn leads to opportunities missed when a trend reaches virality.
In a statement released last week, the platform says that they are committed to creating “a culture of credit, which is central to ensuring TikTok remains a home for creative expression.”
They have also launched a new programming series called Originators that will spotlight original content creators that have generated trends on the platform. If you’re a user that likes to jump on trends, the platform will also introduce a new area that will teach users how to credit others for their work!
So get creating, you never know, you might just go viral!
