TikTok is a short-form video app that's become one of the most popular social platforms among Generation Z. TikTok has more than 2 billion all-time downloads, according to app analytics firm Sensor Tower, and is owned by ByteDance, a Chinese internet company.

Follow INSIDER on TikTok. One of the most popular apps among teenagers at the moment is a short-form video platform called TikTok. In just a few years of its existence, TikTok has become a staple of internet culture and social interaction for Generation Z. The app has surpassed 2 billion all-time downloads, according to app analytics firm Sensor Tower, thanks to its flurry of short-form videos where users participate in viral challenges, lip sync and dance to music, show off comedic skits, and share their hot takes on society at large. But TikTok's rise into the mainstream — especially in the US — has also led to increased scrutiny. TikTok is owned by the colossal Chinese company ByteDance, a connection that's raised concerns about how much access and influence the Chinese government has to user data and content moderation. To appease concerns, ByteDance recently appointed a new CEO for TikTok, Kevin Mayer, an American ex-Disney streaming executive who is now based out of TikTok's Los Angeles offices. Nonetheless, the Trump administration hinted last week it was considering banning TikTok in the US. Rising calls to take action against the app in one of its biggest markets could mean trouble for TikTok's future and the millions of users loyal to its content. Here's how TikTok rose to become a social network loved by teens and scrutinized by US authorities:SEE ALSO: Palantir, a secretive tech company started by members of the 'PayPal mafia' with close ties to the Trump administration, could be one of the biggest tech IPOs ever. Take a closer look at how it makes money To trace the history of this incredibly popular short-form video sharing app, it's important to note that TikTok didn't start as TikTok, but as two distinct apps that eventually merged: and Douyin. was a short-form app where users could create and share 15-second lip sync music videos.

Within a year, Douyin had 100 million users and 1 billion video views each day.

The platform quickly rose to the top of the charts in Thailand, Japan, and other Asian markets. Source: KrAsia As TikTok started to gain traction globally, was taking over the United States.

ByteDance first operated the two short-form video apps as two separate platforms: in the US, and TikTok in other foreign markets. Source: Business Insider Less than a year later, in August 2018, ByteDance announced it would shut down and merge it into TikTok. All profiles were automatically moved over to the TikTok platform. "Combining and TikTok is a natural fit given the shared mission of both experiences — to create a community where everyone can be a creator," cofounder Zhu said at the time.

Think of ByteDance as China's Facebook: Both companies own families of popular social networking apps used by billions of people a day. ByteDance is run by CEO Zhang Yiming, who founded the company in 2012. Zhang's name is relatively unknown outside of China, but the 37-year-old CEO comes from a background in software engineering and is worth an estimated $16.2 billion, according to Forbes.

Zhang wanted to create a news platform whose results were powered by artificial intelligence, separate from China's search engine Baidu.

In 2019, ByteDance released a WeChat-competing chat app called FlipChat, and a video-messaging app called Duoshan.

Worldwide, it's become home to viral challenges and spawned internet memes, and has become particularly popular among Generation Z. Because of TikTok's music-centric set-up, TikTok has become a launchpad outside of the traditional industry for budding artists who have seen their songs go viral for uses in dances and challenges on the app. That includes Lil Nas X, whose song "Old Town Road" was used for countless videos and memes on TikTok ahead of its ascent to the top of the Billboard charts.

Following a popularity boost during the coronavirus pandemic, TikTok surpassed 2 billion downloads worldwide in April across both iOS and Android devices, according to app analytics firm Sensor Tower. Source: Business Insider But the rising popularity of TikTok has also come with some controversy, due to its ties to China via ByteDance. TikTok has found itself in the crosshairs of US lawmakers, who have raised national security and privacy concerns over ByteDance's ties to the Chinese government. The US government started investigating the app in November 2019 after pressure from lawmakers. Officials have raised concern about how TikTok handles and stores user data, leading to some government entities to ban the app from their employees' government-issued phones. Source: Business Insider   The app's young user base has also gotten it in trouble with children's privacy officials. TikTok paid out a $5.7 million fine to the Federal Trade Commission in 2019 over allegations it illegally collected personal information from children under age 13 without parental consent, in violation of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. Per the FTC settlement, TikTok promised to delete existing data it had on young users and change its practices to adhere to COPPA. However, earlier this year, privacy and child advocates accused TikTok of breaking the terms of the FTC settlement by failing to delete videos and other content obtained illegally, and failing to alter policies. As a result, the FTC and US Justice Department are now looking into allegations it failed to live up to its 2019 agreement. Source: Business Insider, FTC TikTok has also faced allegations it censors content on the platform. The Guardian found TikTok had previously removed political content that would anger the Chinese government, brought on by the suspicious absence of videos of the Hong Kong pro-democracy protests in 2019. TikTok has denied it censors content on requests from any "foreign government," and has said that none of its moderators are based in China. Source: The Guardian Media outlets have also uncovered TikTok policies that had censored 'culturally problematic' content — including videos featuring vaping, so-called suggestive dancing, and social issues. TikTok was also found to have limited the reach of and censored videos from disabled, queer, and fat creators. It's still unclear what policies TikTok uses to moderate its content today. TikTok has said that it no longer adheres to these policies when monitoring content.

On June 1, ByteDance appointed Kevin Mayer, an ex-Disney executive, to global CEO, based in Los Angeles. Zhu, the cofounder and former head of TikTok, now serves as ByteDance's VP of product and strategy. Source: Business Insider It didn't take long for Mayer to face his first challenge as TikTok's new CEO: India said in June it was banning TikTok and other Chinese apps amid violent clashes with China over a disputed shared border. Mayer had to quickly address concerns from thousands of employees in India, a market making up 30% of all TikTok downloads. Source: Business Insider In early July, concerns around TikTok's presence in the US were reignited following comments from President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about potentially banning the app. Although Pompeo cited national security fears as a reason, Trump said he was looking to punish China over the coronavirus pandemic. Source: Business Insider Despite concerns over TikTok, it's unclear whether the app collects any more user data or poses a bigger security threat than any other major tech company that's based in the US, like Facebook or Google. Source: Business Insider Although the US government hasn't since expanded on any plans to ban TikTok, Trump's comments have led American users to panic and US entities to consider action of their own against the app. US lawmakers have backed calls to ban TikTok, and the Republican and Democratic parties have both warned staff members not to use the app. Amazon's quick decision on Friday to order employees to delete TikTok from their phones stoked fears that other US companies would follow suit, but Amazon walked back its policy later in the day. At least one big US company has banned TikTok: Wells Fargo. Source: Business Insider
The Beijing office of the Cyber Administration of China (CAC) on Monday summoned executives from Bytedance’s Jinri Toutiao for allowing search results which defamed a late Communist Party military leader, ordering the company to clean up its search function.Why it matters: As one of the largest and most popular content aggregators in China, Jinri Toutiao is known for sensationalized content, leading to censure from internet regulators on a number of occasions.However, low quality content continues to thrive on the platform despite cleanup efforts.The CAC summoned executives of Jinri Toutiao in November 2018, demanding that the platform conduct a self-cleanup campaign.Details: In a post on its official WeChat account, the internet regulator said that the search engine on Jinri Toutiao linked to slanderous search results about Fang Zhimin, who is officially recognized as a revolutionary martyr in China.The Beijing office of the CAC said requested Jinri Toutiao to “thoroughly clean up relevant information and punish responsible personnel,” as well as improve the platform’s search function.
On Monday we talked about some of the pressures stacking up on TikTok: increasing skepticism from Congress about its Chinese parent company ByteDance; a raft of new competitors slurping up venture capital and building their own short-form video apps powered by machine learning; and the public-perception risk that comes from keeping executives behind the scenes and responding to questions primarily via blog post.In it, Vanessa Pappas, TikTok’s general manager for the United States, laid out her case that the management team behind the app is and will remain independent of demands from the Chinese government.The company is building out a US-based leadership team, a US-based content moderation team; and localized community guidelines.It pledged to work with US regulators.TikTok’s data centers are located entirely outside of China.His company had taken “the wrong path,” he wrote, and, along the way, he had “failed his users.” Perhaps it was not entirely coincidental that his words echoed a notice posted by the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, the country’s media regulator, which accused Bytedance of making apps that offended common sensibility—the news stories on Jinri Toutiao were “opposed to morality” and the jokes on Neihan Duanzi were “off-color.” For these reasons, the state said, the platforms had “triggered intense resentment among Internet users.”
China’s food delivery and lifestyle service giant Meituan has introduced mini programs, allowing users to access various services without leaving the app, Chinese media reported Tuesday.Why it matters: Meituan’s adoption of mini programs, lightweight applications with a diverse range of functions accessible from within its app, is relatively late in the game.However, mini-programs and similar applications are a key, must-have feature for mainstream apps.Native mini-programs will help Meituan keep its 422 million users and 5.9 million merchants on its platform rather than navigating to other apps, such as WeChat, for certain tasks.First pioneered by WeChat in 2017, mini-programs have been adopted by leading Chinese super apps, including Tencent’s QQ, Baidu, Alibaba’s Alipay, and Taobao, as well as Bytedance’s Jinri Toutiao and Douyin.WeChat mini-programs have become a major source of traffic for many services in China with more than 2.3 million apps servicing upwards of 681 million active users in April this year, QuestMobile data showed.
the Company said in a statement to the tekniksajten to Techcrunch that there is no truth in it, after the Financial Times wrote that the a note is on the way.however, There has been a list of the Bytedance, especially due to the company's financing round last year at us $ 3 billion.and it was the company of the world's most highly valued teknikstartup of 75-78 billion u.s. dollars, the equivalent of 729-758 billions of dollars.Bytedance, which is a lot of help from the japanese Softbank, is the owner of, among other things, the popular videoappen Tiktok as well as the nyhetsapparna Toutiao, and Topbuzz.
ByteDance has responded to a report in the Financial Times that said the Chinese Internet startup plans to go public in Hong Kong as early as the first quarter of next year.“There is absolutely zero truth to the rumors that we plan to list in Hong Kong in Q1,” said a spokesperson for the company, the owner of TikTok.The Financial Times reported that ByteDance, which was founded in 2012 and is backed by investors including SoftBank, is preparing for a public listing by retaining law firm K Gates and hiring a chief legal officer and former U.S. officials to help address concerns by U.S. lawmakers that TikTok can pose “national security risks,” such as being compelled to turn over data from American users to Chinese authorities.Speculation that ByteDance is gearing up for an IPO started last year when it closed a $3 billion funding round that put its valuation between $75 billion to $78 billion, making it the world’s most valuable startup.ByteDance’s apps also include Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok, news app Toutiao and TopBuzz, a news aggregation app for the U.S. market that the Financial Times reports it is planning to sell as it prepares for an IPO.In September, Reuters reported that ByteDance had made between $7 billion and $8.4 billion in revenue for the first half of the year and had posted a profit in June.
