    TikTok

    I downloaded it on a whim recently, to see what the fuss is about. It's actually quite fun- a harmless way to wile away a few minutes when you're doing nothing better. I imagine quite a few commuters would use it.

    Any TikTokers here? Must be. Anyone featured in a TikTok video and willing to admit it? Any Haters gonna call me a commie?

    A groveler for sure, an apologist check that box, but a commie? That would be impossible...

    Anyone can be a visual artist, and be broadcast in cyberspace. Strange to think- there may be people watching your TikTok artistry in far Bombay armstrong.

    I performed a tik tok video at the weekend on the beach dancing to "I like to move it".

    It got a whopping 5 likes which was quite disappointing as I fully expected it to go viral.

    TikTok is banned in my kid's School and banned in our house.


    TikTok is a phenomenally successful social media platform with more than a billion users scrolling through its endless feeds.

    But there is a dark side to the world’s most popular app and a major investigation has uncovered disturbing evidence about how the app operates.
    A joint investigation by Four Corners and triple j youth current affairs radio show Hack shows how dangerous content is being served up to unwitting users with sometimes devastating consequences.

    Central to the app’s success is data mining, which enables TikTok to harvest vast amounts of information, including facial recognition, to know anything and everything about its users.

    I enjoy watching the creativity on TikTok.

    In college, I adopted a golden retriever from a shelter (Zeke), and he always impressed the room when he howled to "whole lotta love".

    Here is the guy from the police academy movies:

    Banning something your kids enjoy, which their peers can enjoy, probably does more harm to them than:

    What do you think TikTok is gonna do, randomly pick 2 boys from a billion users and implant an overriding desire to invade Nepal?

    Tiktok is a Chinese company. So there's all this bad press about the CCP data mining you. But they all do it

    The School has banned it for a reason.

    Banned there ... banned here.

    Not missing out on anything.

    My Boys engage with their peers, face to face, with play, on the Footy field, at Little Athletics, at the BMX track, in our Neighbourhood etc


    If TikTok is the answer ... it was a very silly question.

    A school should ban all social media. They haven't banned Facebook? What sort of school allows young students from posting on social media during the school day.

    A google search (top match) of lulu's tiktok channel reveals below.

    The Christmas Tree clip made me smile



    As appropriate 'newbie Dave' doesn't have a TicTok channel

    That's great, Dave. And the best way in a normal situation but with Covid lockdowns around the world and kids studying online from home and not at school there is limited intermingling with friends/peers at the moment and I think YouTube and TikTok can add something to a child's interaction with the world. Adults, too, of course.

    How can a school actually ban TikTok?

    Do they check the apps on the kids' phones every day?
