While I’m not a big creator of video content, I can certainly appreciate good content, and I planned to share some excellent video content with you.
There is a mobile car washing service in my hometown of Ontario, California. Now videos of mobile car washing are more exciting than videos of…well, videos of writers writing, but not by much. So if you want to grab someone’s attention, you have to put entertaining content into a mobile car washing video.
(No, not that.)
So this local mobile car washing service posted a video on TikTok that began with the service washing…a kid-size vehicle.
Completely cute and entertaining, so I decided to share it from the TikTok app to one of my Facebook groups, and then decided that I wanted to write a blog post about it.
So I went to share the video from the TikTok web page to this blog, and was told the video was not available. I investigated further, and found this on the account page.
Yes, you read that right – a COMPANY’S TikTok account is PRIVATE.
I went back to my TikTok app, navigated to the account, and confirmed that the video was still there (for those of us who were logged in and following the account) and that hundreds of people have seen it.
But I can’t share it with you, nor can I share any of the company’s other videos, which are restricted to “Followers only.”
