Age of users

Sixty percent of TikTok users are from Generation Z (ages 11-26), while Millennials make up about 35 percent, according to this year’s updated data. In addition, 63% of TikTok users are not on Twitter and 40% do not have a Facebook profile. The platform is also becoming increasingly popular among older age groups. In fact, it is not uncommon to find videos also posted by adults and younger children who, although with profiles managed by their parents, are very interested in the platform.

For exactly these reasons, the phenomenon of TikTok Addiction is beginning to be talked about, and this platform is beginning to worry many people.

Most viewed Content

The content posted on TikTok is very varied and ranges from comedy to tutorials to choreography. It is not possible to say exactly which videos are the most popular because the ranking changes practically every week. But among the most viewed video categories are challenges, group dances and videos in which users exchange beauty and make-up tips. Cooking, particularly quick and easy recipes, is also becoming increasingly popular on TikTok.
