TikTok block someone from sending videos

For the chronic oversharers

I am not a big user of TikTok. However, since launching Stompers I have spent a bit more time on the app. This isn’t so much promoting the app as it is sourcing people who could help with promotion as well as watching videos of people using Stompers in the wild. Very cool to see content organically created by our users.

A key feature of TikTok is the ability to share videos with friends. These videos can even be shared externally. We all have that friend though who shares a bit… to much. Whether it’s sending too many texts or bombarding you with video DMs, it can get overwhelming.

I guess you could be emotionally mature and set boundaries with someone in a face-to-face conversation, but let’s be real, most people don’t see each other that much. If they do, they are likely conflict-averse.

This got me thinking… what if you could block people from sending you videos? They would see this upon opening the share sheet and trying to send you a video.

The strife and frustration this might cause would make for a fun news cycle. It’d also ruin a lot of one-sided friendships. That said, if one person is putting in all the effort, maybe it’s good they know so they can cut their losses.
