The popularity of VIDEO platform TikTok has skyrocketed due to the customized For You page with endless videos.
On the social media app, users will find dances, recipes, comedy skits, and social activism with creators amassing millions of followers.
Who has the most followers on TikTok?
TikTok is available in more than 150 countries and has been downloaded over 175 million times in the US alone.
The For You page in the app customizes the videos you watch without having to follow the creator, which allows the content to spread quickly.
However, you can still follow people to connect and increase the number of their videos and related content you see.
As with all social media apps, TikTok has its fair share of influencers and developers with massive followings.
Dances and trends move so quickly across the platform that a single golden video can catapult a creator to superstardom.
The top 10 most visited TikTok accounts are as follows.
