History of TikTok app?

Alex Zhu and Luyu Yang were the two best friends in China. Both of them were inspired by growing technology and they thought to launch an educational social networking app where children will get the chance to study at home.

And their other motive is to provide a platform for capable teachers and they will get money according to their hard work.

They take around 6 months to develop this app with their hard work. When they launched this app, they find that it was going the opposite with them.

They created this app so that it will be useful for both students and teachers. But the public like this app and used it only for entertainment. Most people like to watch a short video on it. So they changed this app from an educational app to an entertainment app.
