Youtube vs TikTok
Another significant reason for the decline in TikTok’s rating is hassle between influencers. As per reports, the saga of youtube vs TikTokers started after the CarryMinati’s youtube video. The video roosted one of the theTikTokers. Consequently, several TikTokers reported the video titled, “YouTube vs. TikTok – The End” which eventually got deleted.

After that huge battle started between TikTokers and Youtubers. Youtubers started reporting videos on TikTok. Reportedly, the syndicate of youtube video makers started rating TikTok as 1 star which led to a decline in the ratings of the social media app.
The rating of TikTok now stands at 1.3 from around 4.5 percent. Following this Tiktok is facing immense difficulty.

Another reason is as, TikTok is driven by China, and the US has immense followers on the social app; hence, the U.S would not appreciate a Chinese app in their country. Hence, several in the US also wants a decline in the usage of Tiktok.
Witnessing decline in its ratting TikTok tweeted and showcased TikTok’s community guidelines.

Although Tiktok has lost its rating, it is not possible that the application will go down. There are more than 1billion users of TikTok across the globe; most of the users reside in South Asia. Hence, the downward turning of TikTok is not possible. However, many are blaming China for the TikTok deed just as they are blaming China for Coronavirus pandemic. One thing is certain that the leading social media application immensely lost ratings due to the zealous campaign against it.
