Likee statistics

After the success of TikTok, which was developed in 2016, we have witnessed a revolution on a global scale, in the way that users can upload videos to social media platforms autonomously, gain traction and interact with other’s broadcasted content. Like is a social media app that was developed in 2017, and allows users to create short videos with several editing options. 

As TikTok grew in popularity across all demographics in many countries, concerns about its privacy policies also developed. Several countries considered banning the app, and some have even gone through with the ban. 

Subsequently, people started using Likee as an alternative, as it offered similar features to TikTok, with good editing tools and sound effects.

In this blog post, I will share some statistics about Likee’s growth and popularity.
