The first study exploring TikTok's potential for science/geoscience communication.
Short summary
To determine the best strategies for geoscience communication on TikTok, we created a TikTok account called Terra Explore. We produced 48 educational geoscience videos and evaluated each video’s performance. Our most-viewed videos received nearly all of their views from TikTok’s algorithmic recommendation feed, and the videos that received the most views were related to a recent newsworthy event (e.g., earthquake) or explained the geology of a recognizable area.
