The 10 most popular TikTokers
After it was created in 2017 in China, TikTok became the most downloaded app in the US in 2018. TikTok is now the fastest growing social network, and brands are starting to watch this space more and more closely.
By bringing music to the social media game, what started off as teenagers trying themselves at lip-syncing attracted much more, quickly drawing competitive dancers, actors, and worldwide influencers… as well as brands seeing the potential of these younger and ‘more authentic’ digital influencers.
The platform is still young and its rankings far from set in stone. Take a look at the 10 most popular influencers on TikTok right now!
