TikTok really is trashy and the amount of data that gets sent to its Chinese parent company should frighten you.

So if Chinese companies are collecting information from users it's bad but if American companies are doing the same with other platforms it's fine? :enigma:

honestly this :laughga:

the data tiktok collects is nothing out of the ordinary, every other social media app asks for the same permissions etc

India only banned the app in an act of symbolism due to the border disputes flaring up again

Sometimes it feels like I've got a war in my mind, I wanna get off but I keep riding the ride

Should ban Zoom if it’s for national security concern (all your meeting informations goes straight into their office in Beijing). TikTok, while did had horrible past on mining user’s personal information, didn’t seem to be that big of threat anyway. But hey, I would love to all those Gen Z FUME.:coffee:

Eh I feel like they should just strengthen privacy laws on the federal level so that these kinds of spyware apps can't take info left and right. Apple/Google should update their app stores policies preemptively too.

Purr more, hiss less.

GGD: "tik Tok needs to go"

 

Trump says it and GGD says: "what right do we have?"

 

I knew the moment I read the title there would be some reverse phychology backtracking going on :toofunny:

Zoom is different, it’s an American company and is traded on the NASDAQ

If it's in the interest of national security, I don't follow your equivalency. He's not banning TikTok because users on it don't like him or his administration and use the platform to be critical of it, he's banning it because of ties to China, a country which, I cannot stress enough, is just a little bit hostile to America, it's government, and it's people. So no, it's not in the vein of China or North Korea, which ban social media as a way to oppress thought deemed "unacceptable".

Is it one of our country's main priorities right now? No. But I think you can sense how I feel 

TikTok is helpful during the BLM movement with spreading events and etc. but after censoring black creators, the LGBTQ+, covering up suicide, "ugly people", etc. I personally hate the app :neyde:

 

 

The country is going thru a pandemic, race relations crisis, and a great depression and Trump is focused on the culture war and statues he can’t even identify. There’s no focus on important issues here 😳😭
