What is a repost on TikTok?

TikTok’s repost feature allows you to repost TikToks that belong to other users from your own TikTok account to share with your audience. The reposting feature allows you to curate content from others to share with your audience, while still crediting the original poster. TikTok began testing the “Repost” button in January 2022 before officially launching the feature in May 2022.
