LIVES allow creators to stream videos in real time. This is a golden opportunity to interact with the community! In addition, TikTok LIVE can be done with several people: a creator can therefore associate with other members, who will have a separate chat space during their event. Many LIVES are broadcast on the social network and it is up to you to follow them. For that, do not panic: you can register in advance to be notified .



Follow a LIVE on TikTok, do you like it? If you're interested in a creator's content, don't miss this golden opportunity to connect with them. Lives are recognizable by the small live icon that appears below the member's avatar. It is then necessary to connect without waiting to participate in the event. That said, not to be taken aback, the platform has everything planned: just register for the event some time before. This tutorial shows you how.
