Tiktok became the world’s most downloaded app, beats Facebook

Chinese app TikTok, famous for short videos, has now become the world's most downloaded social media app.

Short video sharing app Tiktok has now become the most downloaded social media app in the world. Tiktok has achieved this feat by beating Facebook and WhatsApp. This has been said in the report of Nikkei Asia.

According to the report of Nikkei Asia, in a global survey regarding downloads in 2020, Tiktok is at the top of the list of social media providers this time. Tiktok is at the top for the first time in this study, which started for the first time in 2018. Seven of the top 10 most downloaded apps in the world in 2020 are developed by entities based in the US.

Four of these (Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger) are owned by the same company, which is ranked in the top five. According to the report, in Asia (excluding China), TikTok is the second most downloaded app after Facebook. The messaging app Telegram was heavily downloaded during the pandemic. In terms of downloads, the app dropped from 15th place in 2019 to 7th in Asia (excluding China) in 2020, while it moved up one place (7th) in the most downloaded global rankings.

Many short video apps like Likee, a Chinese app and competitor to Tiktok, are gaining popularity. The app produces short videos that many companies use for marketing and is ranked eighth in the new global download league. Similarly, Snack Video, an app from Kuaishou, China, was the sixth most downloaded in Asia-Pacific.
