With more than 100 million monthly active users in the United States, TikTok is one of the most widely used social platforms. 

Brands must note that an engaging and immersive content style is what makes TikTok so popular among social media users. Without a so-called homepage, TikTok lets users directly dive into the content and avoids content interruptions by offering continuous swiping feature.

Studies show that ad view rates, audience engagement and conversion rates are much higher in vertical ads than horizontal or other traditional ad formats. With a single full-screen video, users are fully engaged in TikTok’s in-feed video experience. Unlike other platforms, TikTok focuses on simplicity and minimising distractions.
