TikTok Followers, like other live video services, gives you the ability to have real-time conversations with the people watching your videos.

Your viewers will have the ability to interact with you and ask questions at the moment if you go live on TikTok. Live broadcasting is characterized by spontaneity and veracity. You are, after all, uncut, unedited, and unfiltered!

A lot of things could happen, and the uncertainty is quite interesting (not to mention live streams are a great way to drive social commerce, too).

Whether you’re hosting a series, having a talk, giving a tutorial, or putting on a show, live streams are a fantastic way to demonstrate your expertise and promote your business.

If you are above 18 years old and go live on TikTok, viewers can send you virtual presents, which you can then swap for cash. While the conversion rate is low, this feature can also be used to earn funds for good causes.

What Do TikTok Lives Mean?


TikTok Lives are live broadcasts that are viewed on the TikTok application. They are typically concise and informal. However, brands typically create more structured lives, such as food shows, gym instructions, and product tutorials.

TikTok Live videos, much like Facebook and Instagram Live videos, are a medium for real-time communication that is experiencing significant expansion. Brands can establish credibility, educate their audience, and boost audience engagement.

How Many Followers Does Tiktok Require to Go Live?

TikTok livestreaming requires 1,000 followers. Participation requires a 16-year-old minimum. It is rumoured that there is a way to get around the need of having 1,000 followers; however, our attempt to implement this workaround proved unsuccessful. Maybe you’ll have better luck? Scroll down for further explanation!

How Can I Go Live on TikTok if I Don’t Have One Thousand Fans?


Whispers were circulating that there was a way to go live without having 1,000 supporters. Even though we do not support non-TikTok-approved hacks, we had to test them.

Essentially, the reported solution consisted of submitting a support ticket (i.e., a falsehood) and asking the customer service representative to “reinstate” live access.

You may have more luck than we do. Here is the recommended protocol:

  • Access the submission form by going to your profile and selecting “Profile” from the menu that appears.
  • Select Preferences and Privacy
  • Scroll down to “Problem Report.”
  • Under “Popular,” select “I can’t begin a LIVE.”
  • From here, press “No.”

Then, complete a report indicating that you can no longer initiate a live broadcast. Submit your report and await a response from a representative!

Many people have found success with this strategy. No, not in our case. Increasing interaction is the key to growing your fan following organically if this strategy isn’t successful for you.
