The technology security company Cloudfare published its ranking of the most popular domains of 2021, which comes with a surprise that measures the relevance that social networks have acquired during the pandemic: TikTok surpassed all Google domains in terms of traffic in 2021.

By domain it should be understood that they encompass all the sites under the domain of a .com, for example, the domain encompasses the visits of users of services such as Office 365 and Microsoft Teams, while those of encompass services such as Maps or Translate.

Cloudfare highlights that the rise of TikTok began in February 2021. The date coincides with the start of the lockdowns as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As of that date, TikTok shared the first position with Google domains, and endorsed its position of honor on dates such as Thanksgiving (November 25) and Black Friday (November 26).

The rise of TikTok also stands out if you take into account the position it obtained in 2020 in the same count (the seventh). In that year, Google and Facebook were position 1 and 2, respectively. Back then, it is worth noting, the COVID-19 pandemic did not exist.

Are you a constant user of TikTok? Then you are one of those responsible for the fact that a social network that until not long ago did not exist, is now one of the most visited sites on the internet.
