WHAT IS #FYP ON TIKTOK?

#FYP is the most popular hashtag on TikTok right now.

#FYP refers to the For You Page” section on the popular TikTok app. When users click on the “For You” page, TikTok’s algorithm will show you videos it thinks you may want to watch or “like”, depending on different factors including;

  • Your past activity: videos you watched, videos you liked, videos you commented on, videos you have shared, videos you have created, accounts you follow, etc.
  • Video information: which might include details like captions, sounds, and hashtags.
  • Device and account settings: language preference, country setting, and device type. These factors are included to make sure the “For you page” is optimised for performance, but they receive lower weight in TikTok’s “For you Page” recommendation system relative to other data points since users don’t actively express these as preferences.

TikTok users and influencers hashtag their videos with the popular #fyp hashtag with the aim their videos will be showcased on users’ “For You page”; with the hopes of generating more video views and winning more followers.
