TikTok vs YouTube Shorts vs Instagram/Facebook Reels

Bite-sized videos are a huge thing on the Internet these days. The trend started with TikTok and has expanded to YouTube, Instagram, and a few other places. It’s so popular that TikTok overtook Google as the number one most popular website in 2021. People seem to really like them, and it doesn’t seem like a passing trend anymore. It’s true that Vine and other services started the short video trend, but none of them have seen the success of TikTok, YouTube Shorts, Facebook Reels, and Instagram Reels.
