Following the article we made a while ago on the Social Platforms Winners which determined which of the social media platforms were booming with the onset of the COVID – 19 virus rampage, interesting developments are appearing concerning the platform which topped the list, TikTok is a Chinese video-sharing social networking service owned by ByteDance. It is used to create short dance, lip-sync, comedy, and talent videos. The app was launched in 2017 for iOS and Android in markets outside of China.

TikTok stepped into the spotlight during the onset of the current global pandemic and recorded a meteoric rise in sign-ups and content on the app. So much so that content from the app was seeping unto other existing platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Whatsapp. However, what was a memorable rise to prominence seems to be coming to an end, in a very interesting way. Today, we’ll look at the first reason why TikTok has taken a hit in recent weeks.

zynn app

There has been talk about an app, a clone app of TikTok apparently, which was unknown and released and launched at the beginning of May but managed to make number one on the App Store and get into the top 10 free apps in the Google Playstore.The reason why Zynn, the unknown app, has been said to be a clone or identical to TikTok is simply that the core interface is almost the same and the purpose for both lies in watching and consuming video content online. The difference is, whereas TikTok thrives on the creation of content by users, Zynn pays you when you watch a video. Crazy right? Not really.

BoostPal had the same scheme working for it; people signed up, watched videos, and got paid for it. You got even more money if you could refer other people to sign up. Zynn is no different. You have to sign up with a PayPal account so that the payment can be made possible and they require a sign up connected to an already existing account on your Google or Facebook.

There have already been reports of TikTok using its app to acquire personal information to keep track or spy on its users, making the Zynn sign up a little bit shady, especially since it’s also connected to a legit payment system in PayPal. Zynn isn’t as unknown, however, well, in the Chinese context. It’s just another app part of the battle for domination in the video apps category there and so many like it have existed before or are existing in the space there.

Regardless of whatever is happening, it is now giving TikTok a run for their money, and if it is indeed legit, it is only a matter of time, till it blows up in the world and overtakes TikTok permanently.
