Jannat Mirza Has Become Pakistan Most Followed Social Media Celebrity

Jannat Mirza’s success highlights the growing influence of social media stars in Pakistan, who often surpass traditional celebrities in popularity and reach. Her rise underscores a shift in audience engagement, favoring platforms like TikTok for their immediacy and accessibility.

TikTok’s algorithm and content discovery approach, providing personalized feeds based on user behavior, have contributed to its success and significant impact on a generation’s worldview.

In July 2021, the Pakistani government banned TikTok due to “immoral and indecent” content, following numerous complaints. The ban was lifted in November 2021 after TikTok agreed to moderate content according to local laws.
