TikTok and gen Z

Deeply disturbing. "A new report from CM Group shows that 41% of gen Z obtains news and information on TikTok – more than any other generation. Not only that, TikTok is much more popular with gen Z than TV news, news radio or news websites. TikTok is not a fad that publishers can ignore. For gen Z, it’s a primary news destination."

TikTok is owned by its Chinese parent company ByteDance, which is based in Beijing--it's a collection tool for data about Americans, its biggest users. Chinese aren't allowed to use it. I wouldn't even look at it let alone use it. Democrats are using it for really stupid political ads--like white candidates dancing like it was 1985.
