“[TikTok] defaults to letting you download any video and share it wherever you please — with the app’s watermark attached. That’s fueled TikTok’s stellar growth as clips get posted to Twitter and Instagram — and drive viewers back to the app. It has spawned TikTok compilations on YouTube, and a whole culture of remixing that expands and prolongs the popularity of trending jokes and dances.” wrote TechCrunch back in April, 2020.

TikTok will at the best least become a new platform for PPC advertising, and may even disrupt Google and Facebook, who have dominated online ads for the past five years.
