One of the biggest community features on TikTok is the repost option. It allows you to share content, important messages, and more from other creators you love. It is an excellent tool to engage with the community and spread awareness on videos you like or agree with. Today we are going to show you how to repost on TikTok.
It is a simple process you can do straight from your desired video and involves a few taps.

So this process is all about the repost button. If you have ever wondered what does the repost button on TikTok do, it allows you to share content as we previously mentioned. This feature is similar to sharing a post on Instagram or Facebook. Essentially, you are directly forwarding a video from a TikTok creator or business to your audience.
If this interactive tool sounds interesting, here is how you can repost on TikTok:
- Open your TikTok app and find the video you would like to repost.
- Once you do, tap on the arrow-shaped Share icon in the lower right corner.
- Locate and select the Repost button in the new menu to finish the process.
- Finally, you can add a public comment on your repost.
That is pretty much it, you have made your first TikTok repost. Your followers will be able to see your shared content and also the comment you left on your repost. This is a great way to spread good messages and content and engage with your audience and community.
On the other hand, sometimes you can change your mind about a TikTok repost you made. Furthermore, sometimes you might hit the repost button on accident. In these cases, it is useful to know how to delete a repost on TikTok. Do not worry, it is a quick and easy process if you have accidentally reposted something you did not mean to.
To undo a repost on TikTok, follow these steps:
- Open the TikTok app.
- Locate the video you reposted either through the Home feed or via the Search icon in the top right.
- Once you have the video open, select the arrow-shaped Share icon in the bottom right.
- Simply tap the Remove repost button.
This will automatically delete your repost. Note that you can access this option at any time once you repost something.
Lastly, you might be curious how you can actually see reposts on TikTok you have made. Unfortunately, your reposts will not be showcased on your TikTok profile when you visit it. This is understandably frustrating as it is difficult to track how many videos you have shared after a long time of using the app. Reposts instead show up on the “For You” pages of your friends. This is the only way to effectively see them.
Furthemore, note that all the follows the repost receives go to the original creator and not you. This is an important element to be clarified and it extends to likes as well. Additionally, you can add your comment on the repost but if any other people also comment, their comments will show up on the original post. While reposts are there to promote what you like and what you agree with, you cannot directly use them to gain a following. They are simply intented as an additional way to interact with your TikTok community.
As you can see, TikTok reposts are an engaging feature and offer another interactive way to connect with fellow content creators and your audience. Like the Instagram sharing tool, reposts can also help developing creators spread their content. However you use them, they will allow you to be an active member of your community.
