2020 was a year of great news on the Internet and especially for apps like TikTok. The US government has taken firm action against this network, threatening that it would be expelled from the country if it did not pass into the hands of the Americans.
The truth is that this movement never really happened and TikTok remains stone and lime on smartphones. Its influence is so great that it returned to the top of the list of most installed apps in the last month of 2020.
The path of TikTok has been meteoric. This social network based on sharing short videos has captivated users and is growing. The struggle of the U.S. government and President Donald Trump has brought even greater appeal and has grown this network.
TikTok, most installed app in December 2020
The way in which this interest was expressed was clear, with the TikTok app gaining momentum and becoming the app most installed for several months. He took over this place and apparently won't lose it. There was a recent swing, but now it is at the top again.
December 2020, a time when many new smartphones are activated, saw other apps growing. Facebook, with a batch of 3 of its apps, has the following places, followed by Zoom. The great origins of the 56 million installations of TikTok were China and the USA.
It was also the most profitable on Android and iOS
While it was the most used app, TikTok managed to another prominent position at the end of 2020. It was the most profitable app in December, raising almost $ 142 million, about 3.3 times more than in 2019. Almost 86% came from China, 7% from the USA and 2% from Turkey.
YouTube was the second most profitable with almost 95 million dollars of gross revenue, and here we have a 57% growth compared to the same month of 2019. The main sources were 52% from the USA and 13% from Japan. profitable were Tinder, Disney + and Tencent Video.
Without Trump, how is this app in the US?
This result from TikTok is very important and shows that even with all the attacks suffered it has managed to stay on top. Now that Donald Trump is leaving, it remains to be seen whether the measures will continue, which, in fact, have had no results.
