The Covid19 pandemic had the entire world dancing on this short-form video platform and it quickly became one of the top global online platforms. In 2020, it was the 7th most used online platform according to the top tech magazine Cloudflare. But, this year it has beat tech giants Google and Facebook to secure the top spot!

However, there are a few aspects to keep in mind regarding this ranking. It is not a ranking based on the most number of users, that title still rests with Facebook. This is a list created to represent the top online platforms with the most internet traffic. In another separate list that represents monetary value spent by consumers, TikTok ranked 5th.

While the number of users on TikTok grows exponentially every month, the app owned by the Chinese company ByteDance has also come under fire for various reasons. The biggest complaint that users of TikTok have is the amount of misinformation available on the app. 

During the recently held presidential elections in the United States, misinformation was rampant on this video platform. It was even flagged as a risk to national security during this period of time.

In many countries, the complaint was regarding misinformation around the Covid19 pandemic. Countries such as the Philippines have even instructed the platform to take steps regarding the rampant misinformation ahead of elections next year. In India, the app was banned due to conflicting interests with the government.

Although these issues still persist, people love TikTok and the platform is constantly rolling out new features to keep its user-base intact. With short-form content becoming the most viewed content on the internet, many of its competitor apps such as Facebook have also introduced similar features.
