TikTok does not publicly display the exact date when a user joined the platform on their profile, similar to many other social media platforms. However, there are some indirect methods you might use to estimate when someone might have joined TikTok:
- First TikTok Post: Check the date of the user’s first post. This can give you an idea of when they started actively using the platform. Scroll down to their earliest videos to find this information. However, keep in mind that the user might have deleted their initial posts.
- Welcome Email: If the person has access to the email account they used to sign up for TikTok, they might find a welcome email from TikTok. This email is sent when a new account is created and will include the date of account creation.
- Profile Changes and Updates: If the user has made any significant changes to their profile (like updating their username), this could indicate when they started taking their TikTok presence more seriously, which might be sometime after they initially joined.
- Social Media Announcements: Some users announce on other social media platforms when they join a new platform like TikTok. Checking their other social media profiles for such announcements might give you a clue.
- Asking Them Directly: Direct communication is always an option. You can simply ask the user when they joined TikTok.
- Analyzing Comments on Their Posts: Early comments on their posts might give clues. For example, if there are comments welcoming them to TikTok, it might be around the time they joined.
- Third-Party Tools: Be cautious with third-party tools that claim to provide information about TikTok accounts, including account creation dates. Many of these tools are not reliable and might violate TikTok’s terms of service or user privacy.
- TikTok Trends: If the user has participated in older TikTok trends or challenges, the date those trends were popular might give you an approximate idea of when they joined.
These methods are speculative and won’t provide an exact join date. It’s important to respect the privacy of TikTok users and not to use methods that might invade their personal space or violate TikTok’s terms of service.
