What is the Ideal TikTok Length‪?‬ The Science of Social Media

    • Business

Today we’ll be discussing a topic that we have been asked several questions about: what’s the ideal length for a video on TikTok? More specifically, we explore whether there is a one best TikTok length and look at examples from content creators who make both short and longer videos on the platform.

I hope you enjoy the episode! We’re testing the waters to see if we can get this show back up and running, so make sure you give us a shout on social media if you want to hear more episodes.  As always we'd really appreciate a review and five stars on Apple Podcasts, Spotify (or wherever you listen to the show).

Cheers!
