Online & Digital Media News – TikTok overtakes YouTube in per user time spent

TikTok has overtaken YouTube in per user time spent, according to a report from app analytics firm App Annie. YouTube still leads in overall time spent with an estimated two billion monthly users, compared to TikTok’s 700 million. The time spent metric is also only available on Android devices, resulting in a skewed metric without iOS data. With video streaming transforming the social media landscape over the last four years, The Evolution of Social Media Apps: Live Streaming: The New Frontier for Social Media, looks at the extent of that change. Beyond live streaming, the report says creator-focused and video-first user experiences are the new must-haves for driving social engagement with consumers craving authentic experiences and creative innovation.
