Understanding TikTok’s Data Dilemma

https://youtu.be/MhPfN8D9jyA
Banning TikTok might provide a temporary sense of action,
but it’s unlikely to cure the ills of social media apps.
Figuring out what to do about TikTok isn’t just about one app.
It’s about how we handle privacy and data security in the digital age.
