Before the ban, there were 200 million users in the country of TikTok
Short video app TikTok was very popular in India. At the time when it was banned, it had about 200 million users in the country. After the ban of TikTok, Facebook’s Instagram and YouTube launched new features on the lines of this. The feature of posting short videos for users is being given in the name of Reels on Instagram and Shorts on YouTube.
