San Francisco founder’s Gen-Z MySpace app tops App Store charts

“I’m no longer a one-hit wonder,” Tiffany Zhong tweeted on the morning of July 3.

Zhong, the 27-year-old founder of noplace (yes, the name is all lowercase), a MySpace-style social media app for Gen Z, posted a screenshot of the Apple App Store, alongside a selfie of herself screaming. Noplace was ranked number one for free iPhone apps.

“[It’s] “It was an amazing feeling,” she told The Standard.

“Take that, Temu,” Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian tweeted in response to Zhong’s post. “What a vibe. Congrats.” Noplace’s release propelled the Chinese shopping app to the number two spot, followed by social media giants Threads, TikTok and Google. (Ohanian co-hosted the podcast “Probably Nothing” with Zhong a few years ago.)
