Is TikTok’s Popularity slowing down?

TikTok’s popularity is apparently decreasing. After averaging a 12% year-over-year quarterly increase in monthly active users in 2022, TikTok’s growth dipped to a mere 3% in 2023. This has been revealed data from market intelligence firm Sensor Tower. What is equally worrying for TikTok is the declining number of users in the American market, which is a crucial market for TikTok. The data revealed that after peaking at 114 million in June 2023 in American market, the MAUs have dipped slightly to around 111 million. Some analysts are blaming TikTok’s foray into e-commerce for this apparent decline. TikTok Shop was launched in the American market in late 2022, which allowed brands and creators to directly sell products within the app.
