Byte, a social media app released in January, might swallow up a good chunk of TikTok’s 800 million users as President Trump threatens to ban the China-based tech.
On July 9, just two days after the feds first mentioned taking action against TikTok over concerns China was using it to data-gather and spy on Americans, 622,000 web rats fled the sinking app and downloaded Byte, according to data from Sensor Tower, a website that tracks app data.
The article goes on to state the following:
Unlike TikTok, Byte is American-made. It was created by Dom Hofmann, the co-founder of Vine, another wildly popular app that was acquired by Twitter in 2012 but shuttered in October 2017. That’s when Hofmann began working on Byte.
Byte features 6-second looping videos with special effects. TikTok also offers special effects and filters, but videos on the China-based platform run 15-60 seconds.
Both apps provide users with a recommended stream of “never-ending” of videos offered based on algorithms.
Remember bois, TikTok getting banned can be the catalyst for everyone moving to Byte, aka Vine 2
