TikTok continues to impress new users despite having several issues that bother on privacy. According to data from Sensor Tower, the app was the most downloaded in the month of June. Among an impressive list of popular apps like Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, and Zoom, TikTok came first.

It was a list only containing non-gaming apps—and TikTok was downloaded more than 65 million times in the month of June. Douyin in China ranked first among countries that installed TikTok in June with 13 percent of the total figure, while Indonesia came second with 12 percent.

Facebook came second with 52 million installs in the month of June. Countries with the largest number of Facebook installs in the month in review were India with 28 percent, and the US with a distant 7 percent. Other apps in the top 5 were Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger.

A recent survey has shown that TikTok is one of the most attractive options for brands. The survey which was carried out by Adweek, showed that the Chinese-owned short video sharing platform is fast “becoming a significant source of sales for brands.”

In other news, TikTok now has a new feature for job seekers in the US. If you are out of job, looking for a new opportunity, or a fresh graduate; TikTok’s new feature ‘Resume’ feature is something to look out for. The feature allows you to post personal job pitches via TikTok clips.

So, how do you post a TikTok Resume? The process is not a difficult one—you can use TikTok clips to showcase your skillsets and experience, and subsequently post them to the app using the #TikTokResumes tag in your caption.

You also have the option of using the dedicated TikTok Resume website. In this website, you can get inspirational tips and ideas for your personal video pitch. You can search through various listed openings.

TikTok users can now upload 3-minute-long video on the platform. Recall that the company began testing this feature back in December when it granted access to a handful of users at the time. Apparently, that test has been conducted successfully as the short-form video platform has now officially rolled out the feature to everyone.

Good! It means you can now post longer videos and have more time to tell your stories to the world. The wider roll lout means users will now be able to join the exclusive list of creators that have been uploading longer videos since December.

Long video could be the opportunity some creators want especially as it enables them to add more content that would have been cut in parts.
