The 10 Most Famous Popular & Followed Tik Tok Accounts – August 2019
Tik Tok is absolutely exploding in popularity, particularly among younger Internet users. One of the great things about Tik Tok is that it has created new celebrities from the creators on the platform. This up-from-the-masses approach to celebrity means that ordinary users of the platform can still interact and have a relationship with the creators whose work they admire in turn. If that person is a celebrity, personality or an influencer, having any kind of contact with them even if just as a viewer is one of the things that makes social networking great. With that in mind, today we’re going to list the ten most followed TikTok accounts as of August 2019.
If you’re looking for inspiration, for creative people to follow or just want to see what the masters are doing with Tik Tok, these are the accounts to follow. This data was updated on August 30, 2019. Our source for this reporting is this encyclopedia article, which is updated regularly. We skip the 1st entry in the table, which is Tik Tok’s account, on the theory that nobody is really interested in that one; we also skip the musical.ly account for similar reasons.

It is always a surprise to see how young the typical Tik Tok creator is. Most of these individuals are less than 20 years old and can be as young as 15. I’m always pleasantly surprised to see how good these people actually are. No wonder the social network is so popular!
