How to Pin a Comment on TikTok

As a creator on TikTok, pinning a comment helps you highlight important information you’d want other users in the comment section to notice.

Aside from visibility, users could decide to Pin a Comment for reasons such as:

  1. Answering Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
  2. Highlight positive feedback
  3. Promote other social media accounts
  4. To promote a product, service, or brand
  5. To appreciate fans or sponsors, etc.

Before now, you could Pin a Comment on TikTok by holding the comment and selecting “pin comment” from the options. However, things have changed.

However, in August 2023,  Tiktok removed the ability to pinning comments in videos, and they have reasons for doing this.

Although no official statement was made regarding this change, these are some of the possible reasons for this change:

  1. To simplify the comment interface
  2. To eliminate spamming and abuse of the pin comment feature.
  3. To reduce its use for self-promotion
  4. To encourage more organic and natural engagement between users.
  5. To make it challenging to spread misinformation.
  6. Reduce the visibility of hate and harmful speech.
  7. To create a positive environment where users can express themselves freely.

The removal of this feature may be replaced with other exciting features in the nearest feature.

With these few points, it’s sad to say that the pin comment feature is no longer available for creators. Let’s hope they reinstate the feature soon.
