TikTok continues to be the fastest growing social network among young people aged 14-35, who are also becoming increasingly important consumers in travel and tourism. The vast majority of Generation Z (14-23 year olds) are active TikTok users, and in the last year it has become one of their main sources for monitoring online content. The fastest growing age segment of TikTok users is 25-35 year olds, i.e. young adults and young families with growing spending power.

TikTok is changing the way social media users communicate. Young people are attracted to the platform because of its authenticity, as they know exactly what content to expect on TikTok. These are authentic, phone-recorded videos, with no filters and trendy music.

Videos shot in vertical format are becoming the standard not only on TikTok, but also on other platforms, e.g. YouTube and Instagram.

One of the communication goals on TikTok is to recreate contemporary trends and communicate effectively with Generation Z and young millennials. The use of TikTok represents a great opportunity for the STB to reach young people around the world and attract them to Slovenia with authentic and engaging experiences. Through the Feel Slovenia TikTok profile, STB together with DD Studios communicates the unique experience of Slovenia and reaches thousands of people around the world in an organic way.

Regarding demographics, followers come from the following countries: 57% from Slovenia, 14% from the USA, 10% from Germany, 10% from Italy and 8% from France.

With these eye-catching videos, the STB aims to introduce not only iconic landmarks, but also some of Slovenia's lesser-known destinations. Among the most popular content are unique experiences in Slovenia. Some of the most successful posts, which have also gone viral, include:
