If you’re a regular TikTok user, chances are you’ve come across the common term “POV” at some point. Here’s a comprehensive guide on what it means and when to use it.
With millions of active users engaging in endless conversations and generating vast amounts of content, TikTok has become one of the most widely used social media platforms of our time.
Like all social media platforms, TikTok has created its own lexicon of unique terminology, ranging from convenient acronyms to words that have taken on entirely new meanings because of the app.
If you’ve spent enough time on your “For You” page, you’ve likely encountered the term “POV” in the description of an original video or in the comments section.
Although TikTok has helped increase the word’s popularity, it has also spread beyond the app to other social media sites. So, what does “POV” mean in real life?
What Does TikTok’s POV Mean?
Since TikTok is a video app, it’s easy to use the “POV” style of filmmaking to make clips for it. All you have to do is take pictures from the angle you’re talking about. This is shown by @pgally‘s “POV: you have to work on a class project with the popular girl.”
The user shoots the video from the point of view of the person with whom the popular girl is paired, while the popular girl acts like a snarky popular girl for the camera. Or, @sissybaelol on TikTok has a very literal example of “pov, you’re a bully.”

Also, a great point of view. Bustle was the one who made TikTok work. As POV videos have become more popular, though, many users have forgotten what “point of view” means. Now, the phrase is usually just used before any prompt that asks a user to act out a scene.
Instead of shooting the TikTok from the “POV” they’re talking about; they’ll often show themselves acting out the prompt for the camera. For example, if you walked in on your sister breaking up with her boyfriend, a typical point-of-view video would show your sister, but this TikTok shows the people who walked in on her.
Once you know that “POV” stands for “point of view,” it’s easy to figure out what a “POV” video is trying to say, even when it’s used wrong. And now that you know this, your view will never be the same again.
