According to analysts, it was the best first quarter for TikTok in terms of audience growth: the total number of downloads exceeded 180 million. Compared to Jan-Mar 2018, downloads around the world grew by 70%. TikTok’s revenue from in-app purchases amounted to $18.9 million that is 3.2 times more than in 2018.

The app is gaining popularity on the Russian market as well. It was previously reported that users spend an average of 13 minutes a day on TikTok. In these terms, TikTok was outranked by four apps: VKontakte, Instagram, Youtube, and WatsApp. Brands are using social networks to engage with young audience.
