The “tight” gap with YouTube
TikTok specializes in short videos, although very short, as many of them are less than a minute long, so TikTok will definitely hunt down the YouTube landscape for content directly generated by users. In March 2021, YouTube sought to establish itself in the TikTok area by introducing YouTube Shorts, which allow it to record videos of up to 60 seconds.
Insider Intelligence analyst Jasmine Enberg commented that the gap between TikTok and YouTube was “tight and long videos will help TikTok get back on track”. “Long videos provide opportunities for creators to make more profit, and open the door to additional formats to grow the advertising business on the social network,” he added.
