India continues to contribute to the success of these social media applications across platforms. India contributed 23 percent of the total downloads of Facebook in July, followed by Indonesia at 11 percent. Instagram, Likee and Snapchat round up the list of top downloaded social media applications for July 2019. Sensor Tower’s data excludes Apple and Google apps that come pre-installed on their devices. It also does not include installation from third-party stores available on Android.

TikTok’s growth to become the second most downloaded app during July is no surprise. However, its growth to become the most downloaded app on App Store shows its popularity in the US. It is the fourth most downloaded social media app in the United States. On iOS, it was the third most downloaded app and fourth most downloaded app on Google Play. The app has become a haven among youngsters in markets like India despite all the controversy that comes with the app.
