This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 1, Feb 2023) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
TikTok has rolled out a new settings which allows you to control who sends you a direct message on the app. This is available in other apps already, like Instagram, but TikTok has now adopted a similar strategy, but with slight variation. The options for you includes everyone where anyone can send you a message, or you can choose Suggested friends because as you know, TikTok has this ability to suggest friends based on your sync with Facebook and so on, or mutual followers or people you’ve sent a message to, or no one. So these are the various options and you can find all the settings by going to your profile icon at the bottom of TikTok and then you tap on the menu button and then select Settings and Privacy, and then tap on Privacy. From there you go to Direct Messaging Settings and you will be able to choose whatever option works for you to take a look.
