TikTok was launched in 2017 for iOS and Android in most markets outside of mainland China.
At TikTok, the platform’s mission is to inspire creativity and bring joy. Today, the platform is celebrating that mission and the global TikTok community. More than 1 billion people around the world now come to TikTok every month to be entertained as they learn, laugh, or discover something new. TikTok is honored to be a home for an immensely diverse community of families, small businesses, and creators who transform into favorite stars.
TikTok has become a beloved part of life for people around the world because of the creativity and authenticity of its creators. Its global community is remarkable in its ability to reach millions of people, across generations. From music, food, beauty, and fashion to art, causes, and everything in between, culture truly starts on TikTok.
Whether users are in Singapore, São Paolo, Stockholm, or Seattle, TikTok celebrates them – the creators who inspire, the artists who launch chart-breaking albums, the brands who help users discover and connect with products they love, the communities who lift users up, and all the people who keep users laughing and dancing.
TikTok thanks everyone for making this journey so special.
