We're excited to share that we are now live with our TikTok scraper. With over 1 Billion engaged app users each both, TikTok has become one of the fastest growing social media platforms. And like most other platforms, it currently doesn't have it's own API for developers to access... So we went and created one! You have three endpoints to play around with, Post, Hashtag & Profile.
With the sheer amount of content, user flow and levels of engagement, TikTok is one of the best video-sharing platforms and the amount of data points to scrape is a marketeers dream come true.
What sort of insights can be pulled from the data scraped?
Because of its novelty and trending videos, TikTok has become a marketers platform to work with influencers on creating viral content. As a treasure trove of data can be scraped, what insights can you extract from TikTok? Here are a few initial thoughts:
Find your average like count per picture- Users may want this to see how their like average is improving overtime.
Find most used words/phrases in influencer posts - Agencies or marketing platforms can use this to find the most commonly used captions, emojis, and phrases among influencers. Why would they want this? Well if someone is trying to become an influencer they can see trends, and figure out what they have to do/post to stay in trend.
Take advantage of tagged users - Let’s say you have a group of influencers and you would like to see who they are doing ads for. You can take advantage of the tagged user feature to see posts are advertisements/personal. You can even create a script that checks for how many times a person tags a person. I.e. after running it in the script you can see that “Gordon Ramsay” tagged person “abc” in 32 posts.
Just like our Instagram endpoints we've made using our API incredibly easy, regardless of your preferred programming language. The API is reliable and our infrastructure allows for thousands of concurrent requests, so you can scale up the calls to our endpoints without the fear of losing connection.
To celebrate the introduction of our TikTok scraper, existing SocialScrape users will get 100 free credits to test out the API.
