Can you know if your comment is pinned on TikTok?

When you pin a comment on TikTok, you will see a grey box on the left of the pinned comment. The box will read as Pinned. The pinned comment may take some time before moving to the top of the comment section.

Not every comment section has a pinned comment. When a pinned comment is available, the comment will always appear in the comment summary or at the top section. Also, the comment will be visible from the feed.


A pinned comment can also have a small icon of a push-pin. The push-pin suggests the author has pinned the comment. Pinning a comment is not for everyone. TikTok only allows creators to pin and unpin comments on their videos or posts.

Once a creator pins a comment, the author receives a notification from TikTok informing them that someone has pinned their comment. However, you get no notification for unpinned comments.

What does it mean when someone pins a comment on TikTok?

Pinning a comment on TikTok is significant in many ways. Here are a few.


Display crucial information

Creators pin comments in situations where the video they posted did not give conclusive information or the video was too long for the viewers to understand it. Thus, the pinned comment becomes a summary of the posted video.

Creators can pin a comment if they forget to include information in a video. For example, the pinned comment could reply to what another user asked the creator about the video.


Give instructions

A creator can pin a comment if they want to give clear instructions on interacting with the post. For example, one may wish the comments to be positive or support the video. Also, it could be a way for creators to eliminate cyberbullying.


Promote discussions

You can pin a comment to promote better engagements and discussions on your posts. It lets users talk more about the video, helping you interact with others and grow your account.


Create a thread

A pinned comment could help you create a thread that allows other users to engage with your posts.


You can pin a comment on TikTok to make it appear on the top of the comment section. Go to your inbox, find the comment, long-press it, and tap on the pinned comment in the resulting popup. You will see a grey box on the left of the pinned comment. The comment may take some time before moving to the top of the comment section.

If you send someone who has blocked your account a direct message, it won't be delivered. You can also review your comments or likes on the person's posts. If those comments and likes suddenly disappeared, that person blocked your account.
