As you’ve been scrolling through TikTok today (April 28th), you’ve probably noticed a strange hashtag containing a series of numbers and Chinese characters appearing a lot on your For You Page.
It’s confusing everyone on TikTok. So, what does it mean? Here’s what we know.
TikTok users confused by bizarre hashtag
TikTok users have been rushing to Twitter today to try and get some answers about a bizarre hashtag that just started appearing on thousands of videos.
One person tweeted: “What is going on with the 343543 hashtag you guys are automatically adding to all uploaded videos???”
“Wtf is 343543 on TikTok,” wrote another.
A third person said: “What is this 343543 hashtag on TikTok? Is this the new ‘zybca’?”
TikTok users are reporting that the hashtag is appearing on their videos automatically, without them even typing anything, but why?
What does #如343543 mean?
If you click on the hashtag, you’ll notice that it actually just takes you to the popular #fyp hashtag.
So, #如343543 is just a replacement of #fyp.
But why is it appearing on so many videos?
Why is the hashtag appearing?
The exact reason why the #如343543 hashtag is appearing instead of #fyp remains a mystery, but social media users have a few theories.
Some people think it must be a glitch that TikTok probably already know about and are already working to fix.
Others are saying it could be part of a trial where TikTok is automatically placing the #fyp hashtag on all videos. But, the trial has gone wrong.
Either way, if you’re seeing the weird hashtag, you’re not the only one. It appears to be a worldwide issue, and we’re bound to get some answers from TikTok soon.
