The hugely popular video-sharing app began experiencing problems around 11:30am UK time on Tuesday 10th March.
Reports began to flood the DownDetector website, which monitors outages of popular online services.
“Comments not loading at all – anyone else?” wrote one confused user.
“What’s going on on TikTok? I can’t see any of my friends videos and it says I don’t have any videos posted but I do,” wrote another.
Almost half (49 percent) of affected users said there was an issue with the entire app, while 25 percent reported an issue with their feed. The remaining 25 percent blamed a server connection.
Dismayed TikTokers flocked to Twitter to confirm the news.
Users from across the country are reporting problems, but the majority appear to be in London, Birmingham, and Manchester.
TikTok itself has not acknowledged the problems.
Earlier this month, the app announced that it has more than tripled its maximum video length Users can post videos up to 10 minutes long.
“We’re always thinking of new ways to add value to our community and enrich the TikTok experience. Last year we introduced longer videos to give our community more time to create and entertain on TikTok,” a TikTok spokesperson said in a statement.
“We’re excited to begin rolling out the ability to upload videos up to 10 minutes long, which we hope opens up even more creative possibilities for our creators around the world,” the company added.
The extended video length aims to give creators more time and flexibility when filming cooking demos, beauty tutorials, educational content, and comedy sketches.
Previously, creators used shortened video length to split their video into parts and ask people to follow them for the next part of a series.
The update brings TikTok into the leagues of Google-owned video-sharing giant YouTube, which has made $28.8 billion in ad revenue in 2021.
