The For You feed is a key feature of TikTok, helping users to discover a diversity of content, creators, communities, and products. However, sometimes recommendations can become repetitive or uninteresting. To address this, TikTok has introduced a refresh feature that allows users to view content as if they had just signed up for the platform, prompting the recommendation system to surface more content based on new interactions.
This new feature is part of a suite of content controls that TikTok users can use to shape their experience, including the ability to filter out videos that use specific hashtags or phrases, and to skip future videos from a particular creator or that use a particular sound.

TikTok’s recommendation system is designed to ensure that the breadth of content surfaced to a viewer isn’t too narrow or too repetitive. The platform also works to remove content that breaks its rules, minimize recommendations of potentially harmful topics, and filter out content with mature themes from teen accounts.
TikTok’s approach to content moderation also takes into account the fact that users express themselves in all sorts of ways on the platform, including when they’re going through difficult life experiences. The platform removes content that promotes or glorifies self-injury, while allowing recovery or educational content with limits on how often it’s eligible for recommendation.
