VIDEO platform TikTok has skyrocketed in popularity due to the tailored For You page filled with endless videos.
On the social media app, users can find dancing, recipes, comedy skits and social activism with creators racking up followers in the millions.
Who has the most followers on TikTok?
TikTok is available in more than 150 countries and has been downloaded over 175 million times just in the US.
The For You page on the app tailors the videos you see without even needing to follow the creator which allows the content to spread quickly.
However, you can still follow people to connect and boost the number of their videos and similar content that you see.

Dances and trends move so quickly across the platform, one golden video can catapult a creator into superstardom.
