Roy Morgan data shows that over 1.6 million Australians visit the TikTok website or use the social network’s app in an average four weeks – equivalent to 7% of the population aged six years and older. TikTok has proven especially popular with women and girls, who comprise over two-thirds of the current TikTok user base. Over 1.1 million women and girls (9%) now use TikTok compared to just over 510,000 men and boys (4%). TikTok is also far more popular among younger Australians. Over a fifth of Australians in the youngest Generation Alpha (21%) are now using TikTok – a total of 537,000 Young Australians. There is also a significant TikTok user base among the slightly older Generation Z, with over 670,000 Australians (14%) in this age group now using the new short video service. The rate of TikTok usage then drops off significantly with only 6% of Millennials (308,000), 2% of Generation X (88,000) and less than 1% of either Baby Boomers or Pre-Boomers using TikTok. These results are based on in-depth Roy Morgan Single Source interviews with more than 25,000 Australians aged 14+ over the six months to December 2019 and over 1,000 interviews with Young Australians aged 6-13 years old during the same time period.
