Google, Facebook, Apple… all bow to the Chinese social network that has become very popular: TikTok. According to an American rating, its website is the most visited in 2021 in the world, ahead of all other digital giants.
It was only ranked seventh in 2020, according to the ranking of the American company Cloudflare, and therefore it has made impressive progress this year. According to his analysis, on February 17, 2021 TikTok was recorded in the top rankings of the most visited sites in a single day for the first time. “In March, TikTok had a few more days, as well as in May, but after August 10, 2021, TikTok took the lead for the most days. There were a few days when Google ranked first, but the October and November months were mostly TikTok ones” As explained by the American company.
So, his header for 2021 is the following:
E-commerce giants Amazon and Apple have topped the charts at certain times of the year, most notably in the run-up to Black Friday and Internet Monday, which are major global promotions. Twitter, which was not among the top ten sites of 2020, also entered the rankings this year. The Netflix streaming platform has lost two places.
However, the 2020 data should be analyzed with caution, as Cloudflare was launched in September 2020, and thus after only taking into account the months from September to December of that year, compared to the whole year in 2021.
TikTok has also surpassed Facebook, and has also become the most popular social network in the world. The number of users has particularly exploded during the lockdowns linked to the coronavirus pandemic. Last September, the Chinese company ByteDance, which developed the app, claimed to have crossed one billion active users.
