Early Life and Online Beginnings

He slowly but surely improved his skills and later thought that it was something that he could share to the public as it was entertaining. His intentions were quickly supported by his father, who would help him shoot and edit videos.
He began by using the app Musical.ly, which is a social media service that allows users to create 15 second to one minute looping videos which can be accompanied by music tracks. The app was famous for various lip-syncing related music and it allowed users to edit their videos through speed options as well as through filters. During the peak of its popularity, it had over 200 million users, with an interface that allowed users to easily browse popular content, trending songs, and sounds. However, in 2017 the app was bought by the company Bytedance, which would later merge the app with TikTok, creating a singular app.
Other Social Media Endeavors
Like many other Musical.ly stars, Melloul decided to transition to TikTok, creating an account there and continuing his rise to fame. Compared to musical.ly, TikTok allows users to create short music videos ranging from three to 15 seconds, and users can also opt to create three to 60 seconds worth of looping videos. Since the merger, the app has become the leading short video platform in several parts of the world, including Asia and the US. According to sources, the app now has over 500 million users globally and was the most downloaded app in the US in 2018.
He also started giving more attention to his Instagram account, on which he consistently posts new photos and videos. The social networking service is owned by Facebook, and has become one of the most popular services in the world due to how easy it is to access its features, along with its integration with other popular social media websites. Users can share photos and videos with the public or to pre-approved followers. It launched in 2010 and has since gained over a billion registered users as of 2019, with over 500 million active users daily.
