New Delhi: Everyone is aware of the popularity of TikTok. From the US to India, Social networking giant Facebook remains a headache for TikTok popularity. It is now reported that Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has a secret account on the Chinese short video sharing app TikTok to break its model.
According to BuzzFeed News, the account has not been verified yet, but this account using the handle ‘At the Rate Finked’ is like Twitter on the rest of Zuckerberg’s social media accounts. There are 4,055 followers without a single posted account. The account currently follows 61 celebrities such as Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez, but most TikTok superstars such as Lorraine Gray and Jacob Satireus are involved in the follow-up.
The news said that in 2016, Zuckerberg invited Musicl.ly cofounder Alex Zhu to Facebook’s Menlo Park headquarters in California, but the talks were not successful. In the year 2017, Musicly was bought by Chinese giant Byte Dance for a price of $ 800 million and combined it with its Dooyin Video app and named it TikTok.
At present TikTok has 80 crore users globally, of which 20 crore are from India only. Seeing TikTok fame, Facebook-owned Instagram launched a new video-music remix feature ‘Rills’. With the help of ‘Rills’, users can create music clips of 15 songs and share them through the story.
