(ORDO NEWS) — The TikTok social network is known even to those who are far from online services, but even the most devoted fans are not aware of some facts from the history of the popular platform.
1- Douyin and Musical.ly are also TikTok. If these two names mean nothing to you, then there is nothing surprising. Under the “name” Douyin, the service is known in China, and the Musical.ly platform was bought by ByteDance in 2017 and turned into TikTok on a global level.
2- TikTok and Douyin are the same service, but differ in content due to censorship requirements around the world and China. At the same time, the most popular market for the application is India, which, in terms of the number of users, is ahead of China, which is native to the service.
3- TikTok was created by ByteDance, which was founded in China in 2012. There are two interesting facts about the firm. Firstly, it is one of the few startups that originated outside the US and managed to succeed in the world. Second, it’s the most valuable startup ever, with a $75 billion valuation to date and growing.
4- TikTok is a service that has achieved global success. To date, this platform is represented in more than 150 countries and is available in 75 languages, which allows you to reach a truly gigantic audience.
5- Over a billion videos. This number of videos is viewed on average by the TikTok audience every day, and on average each user spends 52 minutes in the application studying the video. Moreover, 90% of users visit TikTok daily.
