Create your TikTok filter

What's a Tiktok Filter?

TikTok allows users to create and share short videos, usually with a musical background. Known for its creative community and frequent challenges on the platform, TikTok's goal is to go viral. To do this, users can record videos by changing the speed and adding effects like augmented reality filters.

TikTok filters work in a similar way to Instagram filters and Snapchat filters. They allow users to overlay 3D visual effects on their videos, such as animals, masks, glasses and other virtual props.

Again, the goal of these filters is to provide even more engaging content. To use a filter on TikTok, simply go to the filter gallery and apply it to your video. The platform's library of AR filters is regularly updated for ever more viral content.

Target The Right Audience

With more than a billion regular users per month, TikTok is very popular with young people, more than 50% of active users are between 15 and 25 years old.

The number of users is constantly increasing and the share of 25 - 34 years old represents 30%. According to INSEE, this age group is also among the most active age groups when it comes to buying on the Internet.

Regarding the presence of companies on the platform, more and more brands are using TikTok as a marketing tool. For them, it's a way to reach a young audience in a fun way by taking advantage of strong interactions via shares.

Brands use filters to address a young audience likely to be interested in their products while taking advantage of the virality of UGC ("User Generated Content").
