TikTok issue where likes are not showing on videos troubles many

Here’s the crux of the article in video form:

Launched in September of 2016, TikTok has gained massive popularity in almost all parts of the world. With over 1.2 billion monthly active users as of 2021, the platform generated a revenue of $4.6 billion last year.

That said, the last few months have been rather troublesome with users complaining about excessive and intrusive sponsored Ads and some unable to send DMs since accounts were automatically set to Private.

@TikTokSupport Hey TikTok I cannot see who liked my videos and my DM’s aren’t working at all and it’s driving me nuts, I can see other people liked my old videos but not the one I just posted 24 minutes ago, and everytime I try to see, it just goes from 10 to 0 likes
