Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has made it clear in 2019 that he does not like tick-tock talk, which is why a rails section based on his copy has been added to Instagram to give it a bump.
A similar feature is being tested in Facebook’s main app.
In fact, the popularity of TikTok is growing so fast that Facebook’s concern is understandable.
TikTok has become the first mobile app to surpass Facebook and its proprietary apps, which has been downloaded more than 3 billion times worldwide.
According to Censor Tower, the company that monitors the details of the apps, TikTok is the 5th non-game app in the world which has been downloaded more than 3 billion times.
Earlier, the award was held by WhatsApp, Messenger, Facebook and Instagram, all owned by Facebook.
During the first half of 2021, it became the most downloaded app in the world, apart from TikTok Games.
Between January and June 2021, the app was downloaded more than 383 million times worldwide, compared to 61 million in the first half of 2020.
In other words, during the first half of this year, compared to 2020, the download rate of TikTok decreased by 38%, mainly due to the ban on the app in India.
Of course, not every download is used by a dynamic user, but statistics do indicate how much the application has grown in popularity.
In China, TikTok is known as Devon, the second largest market for bite dance (owned by TikTok) after the United States.
It is believed that the Chinese company Byte Dance bought the app Musically for 1 billion in 2017 and then turned it into TikTok (Facebook also tried to buy it but failed), which quickly became worldwide. I became popular.
Mark Zuckerberg has called for a byte dance scrutiny, saying: “Our services, such as the WhatsApp, are used by protesters and social activists around the world for encryption and privacy protection, while TikTok.” What is becoming increasingly popular around the world is said to censor demonstrations, even in the United States.
By the way, it is not clear how many monthly or daily users of this app, because TikTok has not issued any statement about it.
