So if you were to send someone to the link in the bio, for example, you could go ahead and put that somewhere within the video, and you could always grab that take deleted by pushing it on top. You have your filter tab again and you have your stickers here.
You have lots of different stickers to choose from so I’ll. Just choose this to care. For example, you could go ahead and shrink it down or rotate it with your two fingers. Put it there and you have your volume on top, so on top you could use the original song or the soundtrack right.

So I could choose this song use this sound and it will now be edited with this video already and then I could press next and on this page now I could describe my video so that’s, the caption of your video.
Basically, the description you could use hashtags here to do some hashtags, so there’s, a hashtag. You could tag friends if you’ve ever used Instagram. This is very much like Instagram as far as tagging and hashtag go, and then who could view it.
This is important. Do you want to make a public or just for your friends or private? Those are your options. Do you want people to comment and do it? Is a more advanced option where you could do it with someone? We’re, not gon, na focus on that in this video, and you could automatically share it on things on the bottom of the page or save it as a draft.
Once it’s done, you could go ahead and press post and now, if I jump into me right here, my profile section and refresh as soon as it’s done posting, which sometimes takes a little bit.

Let me just one last time go to the plus sign here. Another way to do it is not from previously uploaded videos but go ahead and add a song first. This is another way to do. It choose a song first. So let me go to trending and choose this song on top or this one press, the checkmark.
Now the song is selected. Let me just show you one more thing under the song tab here, you could actually search for anything here and find a song that you want, or under trending, is always like, for example, new releases.
It’s, a really easy way to find a song and press the checkmark I could now want the song is plain: listen to the song. I started recording to that song. So if you’re, recording yourself dancing or lip-synching to that song, this is a great way to do it.
And then, when you let go here, it is playing to that song. You could always go ahead and add filters and things like that, but you could always do that on the next page I’m gonna press the checkmark here now we’re here.
