TikTok developments

TikTok, an app that has swept the social media world and delights users with its 15-second videos, has found itself in the middle of geopolitical tensions. TikTok quickly became popular, drawing more than 2 billion downloads globally and 175 million downloads in the USA, with a predicted 22% rise in 2020. TikTok, and its Chinese version named Douyin, are owned by ByteDance, a multinational information and news company headquartered in Shanghai, China.
