FORBES - Aug 5 - President Trump wants to ban TikTok in the U.S., but he'll consider allowing a U.S. company to purchase it. As long as, in a novel twist, the U.S. government gets a cut. Meanwhile, U.S.-owned Triller is positioning itself as the biggest beneficiary to India's TikTok ban, with 40M new installs. "If TikTok gets banned in the US, Triller, Byte, or Dubsmash may take over as the preferred short-form video social networking app," says app analytics firm Apptopia's Adam Blacker. "Though neither of those is the current leader in the clubhouse as the top competitor to TikTok in the world. Instead, Tiktok's current top competitor is Likee." In the past six months, Likee has more than twice as many app installs in the U.S. as the next leading contender, Triller. And yes, Likee is owned by a China-based company.
