Social media app TikTok has downloaded more than 1.5 billion downloads in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store, according to foreign media reports. This year, it has downloaded 614 million times, up 6% from a year earlier. Sensor Tower estimates it is in third place in terms of its position in the rankings.
WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger came in first and second, and Facebook and Instagram came in fourth and fifth. This seems to indicate that Facebook’s seemingly unbreakable grip on social media is finally beginning to wane.
It is estimated that throughout the life of TikTok, it has made $175 million worldwide through the App Store and Google Play Store. The main sources of income were China (48.3 per cent), the United States (35.7 per cent) and the United Kingdom (3.9 per cent).
