Which Platform Will Make You Famous Quickly TikTok or YouTube?

Here comes the main question. Everyone wants to become famous, everyone needs a recognition of their talent or skill. And in today's reality, YouTube and TikTok has turned the lives of many people, especially YouTube.

YouTube has been serving since 2005 on the internet as a video streaming platform. Hence, it has more features and is dominating over the internet.

As Google is its parent company therefore, YouTube comes preinstalled in every Android device, which makes it available in most of the devices. Whereas you have to manually download TikTok.

If we talk about features on creators side then YouTube wins all the way. Because YouTube is a king in this industry. Every creator wants to join YouTube and they do.

But if we talk about TikTok, it is not far behind. As of 2020 TikTok has over 800 million active users every day, and it is a big number. And on the other hand, YouTube generates billions of views every day.

Not only this. YouTube provides its creators a full detailed statistics of their channel where they can see no. of views, no. of subscribers gained, their earning, comparision with previous month’s stats and much more. Whereas there is no such feature in TikTok.


In my view, YouTube is a winner in every way. Because it has been for so long in this industry. And no doubt it provides so many features and earning ways to its creators.

But the question is which platform will make you popular quickly and here TikTok wins. And this is tested by me and I’ve seen many other people too.

If you listen to me, initially you should go for TikTok and then for YouTube. This will help you grow quickly, widely and for a long time.

YouTube is a big platform but when you start newly you get less views. But on TikTok it will be way better. And chances are much higher.

So in my point of view you should use TikTok first and then go for YouTube. It would be more awesome if you continue both when you start getting some decent no. of views from both sides.

And it is more important you have a real talent or skill to share, then only you can last longer and make a powerful impact.
