1. TikTok launches new ad display option

In a bid to boost business engagement and revenue opportunities, TikTok is rolling out a new ‘Instant Page’ shopping display option. The page will enable brands to connect their TikTok ads to a lightweight, native landing page that is built within TikTok itself, and can load up to 11 times faster than standard mobile pages. Within an Instant Page, users can view videos and images, swipe through carousels, and click on buttons to explore another destination, all within TikTok. (Via Social Media Today)
