With 800 million users worldwide, TikTok is enjoying tremendous success, especially among young people. The Chinese application launched in 2016 ranks 6th among the most popular social networks and messaging applications on the planet *, behind Facebook (2.5 billion users), WhatsApp (2 billion), Messenger (1.3 billion) ), WeChat (1.165 billion) and Instagram (1 billion). It is far ahead of Snapchat (398 million), Twitter (386 million) and Pinterest (366 million).

Google deletes millions of poor TikTok reviews from Play Store

  Google deletes millions of poor TikTok reviews from Play Store In wake of the recent onslaught of bad reviews, Google deleted millions of negative TikTok reviews on the Play Store. In fact, millions of negative reviews have been removed from the Play Store -- which the company deems as "corrective action."After a fake video of a man throwing acid in the face of a woman circulated on the music-oriented social media service TikTok last week, stirring up major backlash against the company as a result, reviews of the application on the Google Play Store dropped from 4.5 stars to 1.2 in a matter of days.

But this limitless climb could well be stopped in mid-flight, due to the ban, effective or seriously envisaged, of TikTok in two of the countries where it is most used. India, where the application has been downloaded 100.6 million times **, has in fact simply banned it on June 29, just like 58 other Chinese applications that have become illegal. A decision taken by the government of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in the name of "the defense of India, the security of the state and public order", according to LesEchos.fr .

Second big blow for TikTok, the United States could follow the same path. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox News on Monday July 6 that the situation was "taken very seriously", adding: "Regarding Chinese applications on mobile phones, I can assure you that the United States will do it. I don't want to go ahead and overtake the president, but it's something that we are examining ”, according to LExpress.fr . However, the United States alone accounts for 50.5 million TikTok downloads, ahead of Brazil and its 36 million users.

France is only in tenth position in the ranking of countries where the application is most used, with 8.1 million users. Let them be reassured, the inhabitants of France are still allowed to learn how to peel a tomato quickly without immersing it in boiling water or to densify their eyebrows by coloring them at home .
