What does pinned mean on TikTok?

Pinned is a way to select videos to feature at the top of your profile.

Usually, videos are listed in chronological order.

This can make it easier to figure out where an old video is, but it can also mean that a great clip that you’re really proud of has been buried far down your timeline by more recent posts.

Luckily, TikTok introduced the pinning feature to give users a little more editorial control over their profile.
