Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg made it clear last year that he didn't like Tik Tok, but now it's clear why he's worried about the Chinese app.
In fact, the popularity of Tik Tok is also growing so fast that Facebook's problems are understandable.
According to online company Censor Tower, Tik Tok was downloaded more than 80 million times in 2019 and beat Facebook, Messenger and Instagram in this regard.
Just one app loads more than Tik Tok, which is a Facebook-owned application, the WhatsApp.
Tik Tok has been downloaded more than 65 billion times so far, censor tower said in a blog post, and the 2019 figures represent 44% of it.

Be aware that Chinese company Bait Dance bought App Musical in 2017 for a billion dollars and then turned it into a talk show (Facebook tried to buy it, but failed), which is fast becoming a worldwide phenomenon. I became popular.
Mark Zuckerberg has called for a bait dance scrutiny and said 'our services such as WhatsApp are used by protesters and social workers worldwide for encryption and privacy protection while Tik Tok. Which is becoming increasingly popular in the world, it is said that it censors demonstrations, even in the United States.
