I find the implications for liberty of the government picking & choosing media applications to ban or allow far worse than those applications aggregating & using information their users give them voluntarily.

One should assume apps like this slurp up your use/location/etc info and use it how they want.

Assume TikTok is the absolute worst, and China's using it to track people and their videos and use and opinions, etc. So the hell what. The people using it are willingly allowing that info to be collected. It's not a damned mind control device. The gov't has no role in regulating whether individuals want to voluntarily share their info with a private company. I have no interest in allowing the government to tell me who I may or may not share my own personal info with.

Murkanen: Shagbert: Subby, you misspelled "all because Tiktok have been repeatedly caught by Apple and assorted security researchers spying on their users for the Chinese government". Might have been an autocorrect or something...

Every social media app that doesn't incorporate some form of end-to-end encryption is used as a means to spy on users.  How do you think they target ads at you?  Mind reading?


This right here.

I was behind a dude buying a pack of smokes today. He was live streaming on facebook and then got pissed when the clerk asked to scan his ID. (In our state the back of the ID can be scanned to confirm age and some stores require it to ensure the ID was present).

Dude flipped the fark out. He was ranting and raving about how the guy scanning his ID for him to buy smokes was spying on him, but the fact Facebook had his location down to the foot and he had completely allowed it was some how missed on him.

It drives me nuts. I have been a gamer forever. As soon as they had Free to Play games I knew we were the things be sold. It is a trade off.

I understand the concerns some are stating, but if you use ANY free app and many paid apps, you give your permission for them to crawl up your ass like a chilean miner.

That is what is in the huge privacy notifications that most people hand wave away.

I just understand I am not that important.

Massively Multiplayer Addict: If TikTok gets banned all i have to say is "Nothing of Value was Lost."

Seriously it's the dumbest app on the planet. Why it's so popular is beyond me.


Because we live in a world where internet users have the attention span of a mayfly (sic). TikTok is just the replacement of Vine, and it will be replaced by something else in two months.
Whats funny is how slow old world corporations are at adapting. Back when Pokemon Go had its three month craze, Sprint created an ad campaign that revolved around the game and they didn't release it till like months after the game was no longer popular.

Look, fecking is a buffoon, but tiktok is actually garbage and no one should have it on their phone.  I've been aware of the fact that they are basically ccp malware for months; he could have read the same info I read.  I'm the last person to defend him, but his hatred for tiktok could very likely have nothing to do with Trump.

Or because we're in a trade war, and economic losses to the other side count as a victory when it costs us nearly nothing to ban an app?

Or it could just be to get Trump to stop spending so much time watching short clips there because they match his attention span?

Without getting into too much detail - they created lots of work for me.  TikTok was the primary social media platform that was propagating the 5G/COVID-19 conspiracy theory.
