A lot of people have developed massive followings on TikTok and in the impending ban can have a massive impact on the lives of the people who have established themselves on that platform. But don’t worry, you can still use it.
Millions of people all around the world use TikTok. Some do it just for fun while others use to to promote their business.
Some people have even earned celebrity status and became famous by sharing their wacky, and sometimes cringey, videos on the platform.
That is the case for Addison Rae, a 19-year-old American girl who is now an international superstar because she grew to fame on TikTok.
Sadly, a lot of people are worried that their livelihood might be stripped from them soon because of growing privacy and security concerns surrounding the app.
It’s official. After a thorough investigation of the Chinese video-sharing app known as TikTok, the authorities have deemed it to be too shifty and they have every intention of banning it.
Analysts say TikTok harvests huge amounts of data, and warn that the Chinese company which owns it — ByteDance — may be forced to share that information with the Chinese Government.
Without diving too deep into Chinese politics, these fears aren’t too far fetched. Similar instances have happened with other Chinese companies like Tencent.
The Aussie Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, even ordered the Federal Government to look “very closely” at TikTok, and it isn’t looking too good for fellow TikTokers.
“If we consider there is a need to take further action than we are taking now, then I can tell you we won’t be shy about it,” ScoMo said regarding the investigation.
