TikTok is the most popular sharing app created in China. Anyone can download on their Android and iOS phones and can create short videos. Mostly, music videos range from 3 to 15 seconds. Besides, the users can also create short music clips of 3 to 15 seconds and short looping clips of 3 to 60 seconds. Currently, TikTok is a leading video sharing app in America, Asia, and other countries.
Facebook has been beaten
In the first quarter of 2019, TikTok surpassed Facebook and became the most downloaded social networking app in the world. As per the sources, China has blocked Facebook, so the Facebook creators are looking forward to gaining its dominance if the young users increase in India.
However, India is the only hope of Facebook to win the battle against Chinese app TikTok. They want to lure first time and young internet users in India.
Facebook and TikTok users in India
TikTok is owned by Chinese startup ByteDance. Recently, it ranked first with 188 million downloads with the largest chunk of users coming from India at 47%. Besides, Facebook ranked second with 176 million which has 21% of Indians. In December 2018, Facebook was the most downloaded app all over the globe.
One plus point of Facebook is that it can be used on computers and laptops, unlike the app. As per the sources, Facebook has 300 million users from India. However, TikTok has 200 million users from which 120 million users are always active at least once in a month. By 2020, 67% of internet users in India will be under 35.
