Here Are 7 TikTok Alternatives That You Must Try In 2024

TikTok is one of the platform that became popular in such a short time. It started the trend of short video content that takes you into an endless video surfing journey. However, the times have changed and TikTok is in troubled waters. ByteDance, the owner of TikTok, will probably face a ban in the United States. When? One cannot be sure about that.

Because of TikTok’s uncertainty, content creators as well as viewers are running around to other platforms that offer users the option to scroll and enjoy short video content. A reasonable number of such platforms offer similar functionalities to TikTok, and we can expect even more platforms to join the race in the coming months.

So, if you are planning to look for another platform that offers you short video content, here are some options that you should try.

Best TikTok Alternatives To Try In 2024

TikTok first made its global appearance in 2016 and since then has been gaining so much popularity across the globe that even popular brand accounts have made their presence on the social platform. There are many reasons why people prefer TikTok over other social platforms

  • The ability to go live
  • Interact with content creator
  • Add and message your friends within the platform
  • Easily share content to other platforms like messaging services

Instagram

One of the closest and biggest competitors to TikTok is Instagram. When Instagram started, it was just a platform for you to share your photos. But over time, it has become more than just sharing photos. Instagram brought out the Reels section where you scroll on for endless hours to watch through the fun and interesting short video content posted by creators from all over. You can easily follow your favorite creators, like their content, and even leave comments and tag your friends. Instagram’s algorithm is quite powerful and will deliver content you enjoy via its Reels section.

Facebook Reels

Another of Meta’s social media apps is on this list. Yes, Facebook also has the option for you to surf endlessly through its Reels section. It is the same as what Instagram has. While there are a large number of content creators on Facebook, did you know that you can also view reels created by creators from Instagram within the Facebook app itself? The difference between the reels on Facebook and Instagram is that on Facebook you can react to the reels unlike the sole like option available in the Instagram app.

Snapchat

Yes, even Snapchat has a small dedicated section that lets you watch short videos. Apart from just sending and receiving stories to increase your Snap Streak score, you can also watch short video content. You can access these short videos by simply tapping on the play icon present at the bottom right of the screen. While it is good that your favorite app also has the option to view short video content, there is room for a lot of improvement when surfing through the short videos on Snapchat. Of Course, if you are a small business to any business that is trying to grow and get a hold of their target audience, then it’s a good platform.

YouTube Shorts

YouTube has also been in the short video content game for a good number of years now. While we all stream YouTube content from creators that we have followed for years, it is also a good platform for you to enjoy short video content if you have some time to spare. If you plan to stick to the YouTube platform with your short video content, the chances of growing big and getting a large audience are possible. You can also grow ahead with your channel by switching between long and short video forms.

Pinterest

Now, this is a social media platform that you didn’t expect to have videos of any sort. But well, they now do. You can watch a good number of short videos based on the content you have pinned or boards that you have created. Unlike TikTok and the other platforms out there, you will not be able to scroll video after video. These videos are scattered around so you will have to scroll through and watch. We can hope that Pinterest soon or later adds a dedicated section for users to comb through various short video content based on their likes, pins, and boards.

The Triller app has a decent amount of editing tools and a large variety of soundtracks that you can use.
