TikTok made two announcements last week. One is about the release of a smart performance campaign option which is an end to end automated solution. So basically TikTok is saying, you trust us and our machine learning system to optimize your advertising campaign for you. So a very interesting option if you don’t want to play around with various options that are inside TikTok ads, then you can try or test this new automated ads option and see if it works for your nonprofit or ministry. The second announcement is about increasing the age limit from 16 to 18 for Live streaming. So basically TikTok is starting to rethink certain options when it comes to younger audience, which is a very interesting trend.
