TikTok has confirmed that they’re testing a new “Nearby” feed. Users who are part of the test will see the feed appear next to their “Following” and “For You” tabs.

The new feed, first reported by social media trendspotter Matt Navarra, will display content shared by users near your current location.

The feature is being tested alongside one that will allow creators to add location tags to their videos.

Location-based recommendations, especially when combined with TikTok’s powerful algorithm, would allow the platform to add another layer of personalization to their users’ already highly curated feeds. That means the Nearby feature could be a game-changer for local businesses and creators alike.

TikTok isn’t the first platform to incorporate tools to support local content discovery. Earlier this year, Instagram launched its searchable map, and Snapchat’s Snap Map has been around since 2017.

This latest update comes as reports continue to circulate that Gen Z uses apps like TikTok and Instagram for search, instead of Google.
