A word to the wise. Stop looking at TikTok as a platform to grow an audience. As more nations look at the Chinese owned app as a security threat, the future of the app looks bleak. While India has already banned TikTok, the U.S. is in discussions to ban the app. Australia labor party has criticized the app and TikTok just exited the Hong Kong market. Why did China bail from Hong Kong? Because a new law would compel TikTok to share information with its users.
Hence, TikTok is falling like flies.
Now, more and more TikTok influencers are looking at other options. TikTok influencers are planning for a mass exodus or a complete ban. How are they planning? They are actively promoting their other social media channels like Facebook and Instagram. Mind you, if TikTok collapses, Facebook would be the biggest beneficiary as it’s looking to recapture the creative audience that moved over to Instagram.
Video gamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins just deleted his TikTok account over security concerns.
Here is the thing, we looked at social media platform having access to our personal information as a bit of joke. Those days are over. Experts are saying that TikTok gives China the means to pump content directly onto the phones of hundreds of millions of citizens in America and Europe.
