TikTok a Social Media Platform
Tiktok a big social media platform with over 800 million users worldwide which is really huge on this platform a user can make a video from 15 seconds till 1 minute.
Tiktok total download is about half of the world’s total population which leads to a very big responsibility as a single 1-minute video with the wrong message can create a mess.
Recently we saw TikTok’s overall app review rating go down from 4.9 to 3.2 then from 3.2 to 2.9 then 1.2 then again to 1.6. According to reports, this happened after Google removed a million user review ratings from Play Store, most of which were 1-star ratings for TikTok. After the removal, the app rating numbers came down from 28 million to 27 million. However, after a couple of days, the app rating numbers have gone further down to 24 million. This means that Google may have removed some 3 million more user reviews and ratings from the app. Although it is not for sure if Google has been removing the ratings from Play Store or users themselves are deleting their reviews. However, the overall rating stays the same at 1.6 for now.
For those unaware, Google Play Store calculates the user review based on the app’s current quality ratings instead of the lifetime average value of user reviews. However, with more ratings removed from the Play Store, we are likely to see slightly more improvement in the overall rating of TikTok in the coming days.
