That's it TikTok he said on Monday that has more than 1 billion active users worldwide, and becomes one of the few applications that does not belong to Facebook or Google and has so many users.
TikTok has been around since 2016 but it was made especially popular during the pandemic, as people spent more time at home trying to find ways to have fun using their mobile phones. The app has also benefited from the fact that more and more people are engaging in posting content on social media to make money.
It is worth noting that the Chinese application continued to develop and gain more and more users despite the Former US President Donald Trump attempts to ban TikTok in the United States. And while Trump's attempt ultimately failed, application has been banned in India, while controlled by European regulators about the data protection practices and child safety.
Also, TikTok continues to have fanatical users despite the creation of similar products by competitors such as Instagram Reels, the YouTube Shorts and Snapchat Spotlight.
Monthly active users of the app in August increased by 25% compared to the same month last year, according to the company Tower Sensor.
Yesterday's TikTok announcement about the 1 billion users consolidates the position of the Chinese application and makes it worthy of major platforms such as Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.
During the pandemic, TikTok managed to attract many millennials and high-profile creators from Instagram and other sites. TikTok also launched a creator fund last year to encourage users to create content on the platform.
