with North America, South America, and Southeast Asia becoming "user hotspots."
As a global social media platform, TikTok has over 5% of its users in four countries: China, the United States, Indonesia, and Brazil. Users are predominantly located in North America, South America, and Southeast Asia. For sellers, the abundance of user bases provides opportunities for global promotion and sales.

The monthly active growth rate in the US market is far ahead
In terms of high activity, the countries with an average monthly active user (MAU) of over 100 million are Indonesia and Brazil. In comparison to the average MAU in the second and third quarters of this year, the US market has shown a relatively impressive growth rate, with a significant increase in user activity, reaching 9.87%. For sellers, the more active the users, the more likely they are to discover more potential trading users. When social media and e-commerce in Indonesia were "separated" and returned to the market, TikTok's Southeast Asian e-commerce business went from showcasing its strength to getting stuck in a quagmire, and now it is in a stage of "emerging from the shadows." Perhaps we still do not know the future trend. Among the remaining "nearly 100 million markets," the US undoubtedly becomes a key increment.
