WeArisma CEO in New Digital Age discussing the possible impact of a TikTok ban on influencer marketing

“TikTok has taken the world by storm since its launch in 2016 by popularising short form video content. In 2022, it became the most downloaded app in the world, surpassing competitors such as Meta and YouTube. Although it is the most popular social media app of today, TikTok has become embroiled into wider diplomatic uncertainty and lawmakers are concerned about users’ data privacy.

Initially, a TikTok ban had been limited to work-related devices, but some steps are being taken to restrict the social media app beyond work devices.
