Facebook is a giant in the social media marketing industry with a worldwide user base of 3.3 billion people, accounting for 43% of the world's population. However, in recent years, a new platform that has grown into a giant competing with Facebook is TikTok. Over the past 6 years, TikTok has demonstrated to businesses the potential growth in its ability to advertise and reach users. So, what is the difference between Facebook Ads and TikTok ads and what are the advantages and disadvantages?

1. Overview of TikTok Ads

1.1. What are TikTok Ads?

TikTok is currently considered a popular video platform globally, with a user base ranging from 12 - 45 years old, an extremely potential market for all types and sizes of businesses. Currently, TikTok is also equipped and supported with a variety of features and advertising forms and detailed performance tracking tools, giving advertisers the necessary convenience when using TikTok Ads as a communication channel. information for the brand.

With TikTok advertising , you can achieve direct goals such as increasing sales, or increasing brand awareness, increasing brand connection (brand love) and many other goals.

1.2. TikTok statistics on user demographics

Surveyed user gender on TikTok: 60% are female, 40% are male.

  • Nearly 50% of global users on TikTok are under 34 years old.
  • 26% of all TikTok users are between the ages of 18 and 24.
  • TikTok has a huge reach worldwide: 466 million users are from India; 173 million users from China; 123 million users from the US and in other countries
  • The average TikTok user spends 52 minutes a day using the app.

1.3. Types of TikTok ads

1.3.1. In-feed Ads

The most popular type of ad on TikTok, appearing in the For you section, one In-Feed Ads will appear for every 3 videos, during the user's time surfing TikTok posts. In-Feed Ads have a duration of up to 60 seconds, have an interface similar to regular posts, and have CTA buttons attached to drive traffic to landing pages.

in feed tiktok ads

This is the only type of ad that TikTok users can set up themselves without having to contact TikTok. The remaining 4 advertising formats will have more stringent requirements, forcing businesses to discuss and cooperate with TikTok to be able to deploy advertising.

1.3.2. Brand Takeover Ads

Is the first ad that appears when users first open the TikTok app of the day. Brand Takeover ads often cover the entire screen, viewers cannot like or comment, advertisers can send messages without viewers ignoring them in the first 3 seconds. However, a skip button will appear later so viewers can choose whether to browse other content or not.

This is considered the most optimal form of advertising on TikTok, because TikTok users will only see one Brand Takeover of a brand per day, but the cost for this form is not small.

1.3.3. Top View Ads

After the Brand Takeover ad ends, the next ad that appears will be the Top View Ads ad. Basically, Top View ads are similar to In-feed ads, but with In-feed ads, you will not be able to know the order and time of ad display. With Top View ads, you can completely know your ad will appear first as soon as the user opens the TikTok app, second only to Brand Takeover ads.

Top View ads still allow users to skip, but showing them early as soon as the user decides to access the app allows the ad to receive higher attention.

1.3.4. Brand Hashtag Challenge

This is one of the forms of TikTok advertising that brings high levels of interaction and encourages viewers to use the business's hashtag to create their own video but still have the style the business wants.


Hashtag Challenge begins when a brand posts a video containing their own hashtag, and fans support their creativity. Typically, the Hashtag Challenge will be found at the top of TikTok's Explore Page.

1.3.5. Branded Effect Ads

A form of advertising that stimulates users to create video content with the use of stickers, filters and special effects from the brand. This format is often combined by brands with other forms of Branded Hash advertising.

Creators on TikTok can freely use effects, 3D formats and create their own content, contributing to increasing the reach of that brand's campaign.

2. Potential of TikTok Ads

2.1. Exploiting audiences with great buying potential and purchasing power in the future - Gen Z

Based on research in Vietnam, Gen Y (also known as Millennials aged 27 - 40 years old) and Gen Z (18 - 26 years old) are often called the Zillennials group. This group of people accounts for 47% of the country's population (45 million people) and is becoming one of the main subjects helping to develop the country's economy.

In addition, according to world research, Gen Z also affects more than 40% of global consumers with a spending ability of up to 143 billion USD.

The above two figures can show us that Gen Z is the largest customer group that businesses need to target. If your business does well in communication and reaches Gen Z, with its huge purchasing power, this customer group will be an expected step forward for your business to develop.

However, you should not ignore the Gen Alpha generation. Although this group of people currently does not have the ability to generate large cash flows, their purchasing and consumption power is no less than today's Gen Z. This generation will open a challenging but equally attractive period for entrepreneurs and businesses.

2.2. Good interoperability

According to 2023 statistics, users spend an average of 43 minutes per day using TikTok and 40 minutes per day on Facebook. This figure shows that, although TikTok has only been born for 6 years, the average time users use the application is on par with Facebook, even slightly more than 3 minutes. Thus, we can see that if we compare TikTok and Facebook in terms of time spent using the application, there really is not much difference. If the platform is attractive enough to attract users, it will quickly receive a lot of interaction and feedback.

Because TikTok has features such as Duet, Stitch or advertising formats that can "attract" users to interact with the business's videos. With TikTok, advertising is always two-way, TikTok's advertising methods will motivate users to turn on the camera to interact with the business's "challenge" videos or "games". This advertising method will help both sides benefit, users can participate in the game, and the business's brand will be known to many people.

2.3. Video Marketing outreach strategy

Nowadays, people tend to be easily attracted to vivid videos and more attractive sounds. If your video provides value, it's essential that people remember and share it strongly. From the viral effect, your video becomes "viral" and thereby increases brand recall from customers.

Although the feature of running video ads on Facebook has been around for a long time, TikTok Ads is the place to help you develop your Video Marketing abilities. With TikTok's optimal capabilities, as soon as users turn on the app, there is already a video playing in front of their eyes. If the video is attractive enough and brings high value, they will be willing to spend time learning about your business's products or services. TikTok is the tool that helps you reach the maximum customer group and achieve the desired conversion rate with a potential and ever-growing video format.

2.4. TikTok has a creative edge over all platforms

If comparing TikTok and Facebook in terms of content, users will find the content on TikTok more creative and attractive than on Facebook. Creative, full of ideas and attractive are the words that describe TikTok's difference compared to the other platforms, it can also be called TikTok's ideal, when creativity is put first, that is not true. This means far-fetched ideas that are present in everyday life but no one pays attention to them.

Compare tiktok and facebook

Even TikTok's slogan is “Don't make ads. Make TikToks", meaning "Don't make ads. Let's do TikTok" has also affirmed and urged creators and users not to just follow one path but to diversify content, giving viewers new experiences, and this reason has made TikTok became a popular video social media platform in a short period of time, and its presence spread to other platforms in the form of short videos .

2.5. Competitive costs

Comparing TikTok and Facebook is certainly indispensable in terms of analyzing costs on both platforms. According to the current survey, TikTok will bring effective communication for campaigns that target brand recognition, traffic and interaction. Because content on TikTok usually has to be attractive to retain viewers because they have a lot of choices, so if they feel curious and interested in the message you convey, they are more likely to find it. understanding your account channel is very high. Therefore, with the goals mentioned above, the content transmitted is very important and can affect advertising costs. The more attractive the content, the lower the advertising costs, but the effectiveness is highly appreciated.

However, with sales goals, TikTok will hardly be as effective as other platforms. Because the TikTok algorithm has been set up to expose users to content from new creators, they will have more options and more opportunities to be exposed to new content. It is very difficult for TikTok users to regularly engage with a creator account, while creating a conversion rate needs to give them more trust, unless your product very attractive and can make customers quickly "close the order".

2.6. KOL/Influencer Hub and easy-to-viral content network

TikTok is a platform that helps local creators freely express themselves on a variety of topics. Using costs to hire KOLs/KOCs/ Influencers is a necessity. People who have good influence in their community will have ways to make their videos more "natural" making it difficult for you to recognize it as an advertisement or you will accept listening to the advertisement. That's because this is a content creator you like.

Compare tiktok and facebook

When your brand continuously appears with KOLs/KOCs/Influencers and attractive video content, users will tend to be more attracted by resonance. At first, they may not be interested in your video, but the more times they appear, the more they will pay attention to your video. After a certain period of time, they will stop and listen to your brand story. your business

Although convenient and easy to set up, personal accounts are more likely to encounter account verification problems, or the ad review process will be more difficult than business accounts due to strict censorship of policy violations. of TikTok. Because it is difficult to manage, the cost of running ads in personal accounts is difficult to control and is not as effective as a business advertising account.

On the contrary, although the setup is more complicated, the business account is more stable, has faster review time and avoids interruptions while running ads.

When encountering problems, personal accounts need to contact TikTok themselves via email and receive support entirely in English. As for business accounts, the business side will work directly with the TikTok team in Vietnam, so the problem will be resolved quickly.

Facebook Ads:

Similar to TikTok, Facebook also has 2 types of advertising accounts:

As for TikTok, personal advertising accounts need to be contacted via email in English, business accounts will be directly supported by the TikTok department.
