TikTok, in China is Douyin, is the fastest growing app in the world. It officially launched in September 2016 and attracted over 150 million users before incorporating Musical.ly into the fold, which boasted 100 million unique users.
The social media app offers a plethora of videos to watch without ever creating an account. Once you've created one, you can follow other creators. Anyone familiar with Snapchat can see how similar the app is by adding sounds, special effects, filters, and snippets to your 15-second Tik Tok video clips.
Unlike Vine, a similar app with short comic clips, Tik Tok's focus is the same as Musical.ly, music. Those interested in lip syncing, dancing, parkour, challenges, magic tricks, lip dubbing, and even aesthetics will surely find Tik Tok appealing. You can even create videos on your phone using Tik Tok and share them with the world via social media.
TikTok and social media integration
TikTok has welcomed its huge success as a social media app similar to Facebook and Instagram. While it may not have achieved the prestige of any of these, TikTok certainly has its place among the most used social media.
You can save all the videos you create via the Tik Tok app and keep them safe. In addition to that, to strengthen their user base and achieve that coveted high-level social media status, it is possible to share TikTok videos on Facebook. Regardless of the device you use, you can save all the videos you make and share them on the Internet.
Which brings me to the point of the article. I'll look at how to save your videos on different devices and how to share them on a social media platform like Facebook. Then we will also see how to share your entire TikTok profile with other users on Facebook.
Saving your TikTok videos
Most of the users currently using TikTok don't even know that there is a built-in save feature for videos.
It is quite evident that Tik Tok allows you to share any video created directly on another social media platform such as Message, Messenger, Facebook, Instagram, Stories, WhatsApp and many more.
However, just below those sharing platforms, you'll find a Save Video feature right there in Tik Tok. This helps you to save the videos directly to the platform itself so that you don't feel forced to share them on another platform.
To save a video to TikTok:
- Launch the Tik Tok app from your favorite mobile device. Android or iOS
- Find the video you want to save.
- Click the button Share located in the menu on the right.
- Select Save video, which you can find at the bottom of the screen.
- This will automatically save the video to your phone's local storage.
- The video will be saved with both the Tik Tok logo watermark and the original creator's user ID.

For this method, you will need to download and install a third party app on your device. You will save the video through the use of a screen recording program called ApowerREC. This app will allow you to save the recorded video and bypass the automatic addition of the watermark and user ID that are applied to the video.

Technically, you could be using the same app, ApowerREC, for both mobile and PC. However, the PC gives us a better option than a screen recording app to use to save TikTok videos. There is a site called Musically Down that works as a music video downloader which is just what TikTok videos are considered to be.
