TikTok is probably your most used app right now, and it’s hard to think of anything else taking over. But it looks like there’s a new social media platform gaining popularity.

There has been some talk of TikTok being banned in some countries due to security concerns, and US President Donald Trump even said he was looking into banning it there.

So, just to be safe, some TikTok users are looking at other options to share their content on.

Some of the apps biggest stars are now getting involved in Triller, a similar video sharing platform.

Josh Richards, Griffin Johnson, and Noah Beck have all set up accounts on the new app, with some even being involved in the company.

Josh is investing even in the app and joining their team as Chief Strategy Officer.

“After seeing the U.S. and other countries’ governments’ concerns over TikTok—and given my responsibility to protect and lead my followers and other influencers—I followed my instincts as an entrepreneur and made it my mission to find a solution,” Josh said in a statement according to Seventeen.

The boys even posted some videos promoting the new app.

Griffin, Beck, and Reeves will be also be involved, as equity shareholders.

Triller has been around since 2015 but its popularity is growing.

Who knows what this will mean for TikTok, we’ve seen before with Instagram where apps like Vero looked like they could take over as a leading platform, but hype died down after a while.

This could happen with Triller, but with some of its biggest stars being involved in Triller, it could have a few impacts on their loyal following.

Plus, Instagram is supposedly launching a feature which will be similar to TikTok too, so maybe that will gain some popularity.
