How many of you have heard of TikTok? If you have not, then you must know that there are over 90 million people that are registered on the platform and every day, more than 580 million videos are constantly posted. TikTok is a platform that allows users to stream and share videos live. TikTok was previously known as Musical.ly but now changed on August 2018. However, it is still dedicated to music videos.
