Toutiao news aggregation application makes a difference. Because artificial intelligence and deep learning have been widely used in many applications.
The basis for Toutiao to be “overconfident” is a bit over-the-top because they are developing at a rapid pace. After launching in 2012, they have attracted more than 700 million users in China with more than 68 million active accounts every day. The company’s value has also increased to $ 22 billion through a capital mobilization in October 2017.
Not only that, Bytedance – Toutiao’s father also bought the lip-syncing video app to Musical.ly last month. It is still a hot app among young people in the US – at about $ 1 billion. It sounds familiar, but the real power depends on each organization’s “army” of programming and makes a difference.
Bytedance recognized this at the Rio Olympics. With hundreds of short stories created from Toutiao bot, it has a very high view. They are also behind 4 of the 6 most famous short video platforms in China.
Toutiao offers more than 200,000 articles and videos every day. They are filtered out from nearly 4,000 media outlets across China. When you open the app, you’ll see a wide range of posts from everything from political and social news to humorous videos.
Each touch allows Toutiao to capture user preferences and adjust the information flow accordingly. The topic of the article displayed on each person’s application is completely different, based on trends, reading preferences of each person at different times.
Thereby, more than half of the time users spend on watching videos. Especially, there are many clips provided and shared by 800,000 users. One of them is Kun, who can be called a vlogger about plants and plants. He has more than 360,000 followers, earning 10,000 yuan a month. The money is shared again by Toutiao from advertising revenue.
Some comments expressed concern for Baidu over the rapid development of Toutiao. This news app aims to earn 50 billion Yuan this year. Toutiao is clearly proud and fortunate to own a great team of programmers.
