CNET: TikTok was downloaded more than Facebook and Messenger in 2019. “For TikTok, 2019 closed with ominous news: Both the US Army and Navy banned it on the grounds of security concerns. But that doesn’t change the fact that 2019 was a slam dunk year for the Chinese social media app. With over 700 million downloads around the world, according to data firm Sensor Tower, it was the second most downloaded app of the year. It beat both Facebook (just under 700 million downloads) and Facebook Messenger (just over 700 million downloads).”
