The ‘Favourite’ tool on TikTok is one of the most popular and one of the most valuable from a user perspective.

When a video or TikTok is ‘Favourited’, tapping the vertical flag icon underneath the like and comment buttons, it gets added to a folder that only that user can view. It contains all the videos that they have favourited – aka, saved for later.

Which is where folders come in.

What Are Folders on TikTok?

TikTok folders are also known as collections. They offer a way of segmenting and separating all favourited videos out into different collections, dependent on topic, format, style, or creator.

For example, if you are wedding planning then you might have one folder or collection dedicated to style, one for music, and one for guest experiences and the little extras throughout your day.

When you have folders, you can easily identify the different types of videos that you have favourited, and more easily find the one that you want to watch.

You could even create folders under a timeline rather than by topic, with a folder for each week or month of content that you favourite and save.

With all that in mind, how do you make folders for your favourited videos?

5 Steps to Make a Folder

  1. Navigate to your profile page on TikTok
  2. Click on the icon along the top of your grid which depicts the same vertical flag as the favourites button that you see on TikTok videos
  3. Along the top of the grid of posts you will see a series of options. Select ‘Collections’
  4. Tap on the ‘Create New Collection’ button
  5. Give your collection a name and determine whether you want it to be public or not

NOTE: Favourited videos default to being private, meaning that only you can see them. However, you can make individual collections public so that your followers can see the kinds of videos that you are saving and engaging with.

Once your collection or folder has been made, you can add any favourited videos to it with ease – organising all of your saved videos according to your preference.

Happy organising!
