Recent reports suggest that the short video sharing application TikTok defeats Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram in the rating game, even though these US-based applications are some of the best-known social media platforms worldwide.
For example, Facebook had 1.88 billion daily active users at the beginning of the year. However, its family of applications, such as Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp, had a massive 2.72 billion daily active users during the same period, which the organization stated was an increase of 15% annually.
In the same way, the microblogging social media app, Twitter, according to the report, has 206 million monetizable daily active users in the second quarter of 2021, which marked a 15% increase every year. However, as per the reports, Snapchat, at the same time, has 292 mn daily active users, which the tech giant reported was an increase of 23% annually.
At the moment, you would anticipate these extensively famous applications to be some of the most highly-rated applications on the Google Play Store. But, unfortunately, it has been found that they are not.
According to Evan Blass, a famous tipster, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram are not rated pretty high on Google Play Store. However, Facebook is rated 2.3 (worst of the bunch). On the other hand, Instagram is rated 3.8. At the same time, Twitter is rated 3.4 on the Play Store. Snapchat, at the same time, got rave reviews, and it is rated 4.3 on the Play Store. However, talking about ByteDance’s short-video sharing platform TikTok, it got a rating of 4.3.
However, if we talk about Apple’s App Store, this trend does not replicate there. Instagram is one of the highest-rated applications on the App Store, whereas Snapchat received lower rates. Facebook, on the other hand, is rated 3.2. And Instagram is rated 4.7 on the Apple App Store. Furthermore, TikTok and Twitter are rated 4.8 and 4.6 separately. At the same time, Snapchat is rated 3.6 on the Apple App Store.
This happens as soon as TikTok became the first non-Facebook mobile application to reach 3 billion downloads all over the world, according to a report issued by Sensor Tower. The report further includes both Google Play Store and Apple App Store numbers.
As per the report issued by Sensor Tower,
“TikTok’s adoption has also accelerated in 2021, as first-time downloads climbed 2 percent Q/Q to 177.5 million in Q1 2021. And surged 16 percent Q/Q to 205.4 million Q2 2021. The most growth the app has seen since its record-breaking Q1 2020 when it accumulated more than 315 million installs. The most any app has seen in a single quarter.”
