Ali M. Latifi, Wired, The Taliban Can’t Stop TikTok “TikTok’s rise in Afghanistan is a recent phenomenon in a marketplace that has mainly been dominated by Facebook, which has around 3.7 million users in the country. As in many emerging markets, Facebook’s rollout intersected with hundreds of thousands of people coming online. But Facebook’s growth has stalled over the past couple of years, while TikTok has become ubiquitous, particularly among young, urban Afghans.”
