Registration and advertising in Douyin

Douyin (抖音 dǒuyīn) - is a short video sharing service owned by ByteDance, an originator of the acclaimed TikTok, so popular among the advanced Western youth. According to the information portal Baijiahao, the number of Chinese Douyin users exceeded 500 million in February 2019, of which 80% are under the age of 29.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DOUYIN AND TIKTOK

The main difference between TikTok and Douyin lies in geographical coverage. Restricted nature of the Chinese Internet space necessitated ByteDance to subdivide the user audience: users in Western countries only have TikTok available and users in mainland China only have Douyin available for download.

The Douyin interface is no different from TikTok. In fact, it is a clone with identical basic functions like scrolling feed, publishing content, likes and reposts. The exception is the “interests” section, where TikTok selects the relevant content based on the chosen topics, and Douyin – based on the location. There are also differences in account registration: in TikTok one can register via Facebook, and in Douyin – via ByteDance services (e.g. Toutiao) or the Weibo microblogging service.

The most significant thing is background music. ByteDance acquires the rights to video soundtracks and offers the most popular music to users based on their region.
