TikTok’s New Feature Lets You Reset Your ‘For You’ Feed
TikTok is adding a way to give your recommendations an overhaul. The app offers users a hard reset on its For You page where they find recommended videos, the company said in a blog post on Thursday. The new feature will clear past interactions on the app and start organizing recommended videos based on how long someone has been on the app from that date.
“When enabled, this feature allows someone to view content from their For You feed as if they had just signed up for TikTok,” according to the blog post.
The feature will be useful for people who find their recommended posts outdated or outdated in relation to their current interests, the company said. You can enable the new feature in content preferences under settings.
TikTok is under intense scrutiny in the United States over fears that the Chinese government may have access to US user data or dictate what is displayed on the platform. On Wednesday, the Biden administration threatened to ban TikTok if it was not sold. TikTok said it does not share information with the Chinese government and offered its own solution: a reorganization of its US operations.
Many state governments have banned TikTok from government devices, and a bill proposing a broader ban has been introduced in the United States House of Representatives.
