What is the ratio on TikTok?
People generally use the word “ratio” in one of two contexts on the TikTok app for iOS and Android. First, there’s the technical meaning of the word; users can target the ideal interaction rate on a post so that the app shares it with more people. Second, there’s the more general sense, in which a person can say that a video or user has a good or bad report.
Explanation of the TikTok reporting algorithm
The TikTok algorithm is an automated system that decides which videos are popular based on their view ratio. If the ratio is equal to or greater than 1 for every 10 views, the app is more likely to share the video and increase exposure for the author.
Targeting the ratio similar to 1/10 helps TikTok users increase their subscriber count.
Explanation of TikTok ratio comments
If a user receives a comment on their ratio, whether it’s good or bad, it refers to the number of likes and/or views received in relation to the number of subscribers. If a post blows up and gets a ton of likes and views, but not many people follow the creator to see more content, that’s a bad ratio on TikTok. If the creator has a lot of followers, however, the ratio is good.
