#ShareCopyLink is a hashtag and phrase that refers to a rumored TikTok growth strategy that involves fooling the algorithm into promoting a video on the “For You Page.”

In order to gain more momentum and land on the For You Page, TikTokers are using the hashtag #ShareCopyLink under their videos. #XYZBCA is a hashtag that is identical to #XYZBCA. #ShareCopyLink had over 182 million views at the time of release.

“Share Copy Link” is another call-to-action that many creators use in their videos and in their video descriptions. When a viewer clicks “Share” and then “Copy Connection,” the algorithm is said to assume the video is being sent to others, regardless of whether it has been inboxed.

As a result, it rates the video higher, making it more likely to appear on the #FYP. While there is some question as to whether this hack really increases visibility, the idea behind it is supported by a number of social media marketing theories. The more engagement (followers, comments, and “shares”) a video gets, the more likely it is to be advertised on the app as something of high interest.
