TikTok is no longer a platform just for kids and teenagers. The video-sharing app is now the fastest-growing platform ever. It has ​​one billion active users spread across 154 countries, making it the most popular social media platform in 2022.

TikTok’s spike in popularity occurred simultaneously with the pandemic, as many latched on to the app for all their cooking, DIY, and educational needs. Its popularity in Czechia, however, is just beginning to pick up steam.

"In Central Europe, TikTok is still considered more of an app for children and youth," Paula Kornaszewska head of the platform's Central European division told Czech Forbes. The company is setting out to change that by focusing its efforts on the Czech market this year.

In 2022, the platform teamed up with the Mercedes-Benz Prague Fashion Week, and Karlovy Vary Film Festival, and is currently one of the main partners of this year's Prague Pride festival where it will sponsor make-up and dance workshops with influencers.

TikTok may be just getting started in the Czech Republic from a business point of view, but several Czech creators (rounded up below) can already compete with the world's most influential TikTokers. English speakers will also appreciate localized content from some expat influencers, mentioned here below the top five.
