No, TikTok is not posting users’ draft videos

This is fake news. Not only is there no official status, plus the platform cannot take initiative on users’ private content, such as drafts, for privacy reasons.

It is spreading among TikTok users a certain alarmism. The reason is the spread of a news that, starting from August 1, 2022, the well-known Chinese social network will publish all videos in draft. Many then rushed to the appropriate section to delete all saved drafts and avoid future public gaffes. There are also numerous tiktoks on the subject, often ironic, which nevertheless contribute to the spread of general panic.

Luckily, it is fake news. Not only is there no officialdom, given that the company behind TikTok, ByteDanceyou have never made such a statement, plus the platform cannot take initiative on users’ private content, such as drafts, for privacy reasons.

An unmotivated fear, therefore, which began a few days ago, when some videos were published on TikTok with the sentence in English translated here: “Imagine that TikTok has a technical problem and that all the drafts are published”. A kind of “what if” – what if? – joking which, however, has alarmed most of the tiktokers.

On TikTok you will be able to upload 10-minute videos

This isn’t the first time TikTok’s draft section has come under the spotlight due to unfounded news. About four months ago, there was a rumor that the platform would soon delete all videos saved in drafts by the user. As can be understood, none of this has ever happened.

Moving on to real facts, the latest trends on TikTok see kindness and sympathy as protagonists. On the one hand, the Flower Summer Cup, a challenge in which you have to give flowers to strangers; on the other hand, there are the first video tutorials of spoken bold, an ironic response to spoken cursive, a phenomenon that exploded thanks to the clips by Elisa Esposito, who even conquered Alexa, the Amazon device.
