TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew Makes First Appearance at Ted Conference Since Senate Grilling

CEO Shou Zi Chew said at a TED conference on Thursday that TikTok has thousands of content moderators that were hired in Ireland. “TikTok has “clear community guidelines” and that executives do not “make any ad-hoc decisions” when dealing with “bad actors” on the internet who post offensive content on the app.”

“Based on that, we have built a team that is tens of thousands of people plus machines in order to identify content that is bad, and actively, proactively remove it from the platform.”

TikTok has become a global phenomenon, with over 1 billion active users worldwide. It is a social media platform where users can create and share short videos with various effects and filters. While it is a popular app among teenagers and young adults, there are growing concerns about the dangers of TikTok.

One of the biggest dangers of TikTok is its potential impact on mental health. The app is known for its addictive nature, with users spending hours scrolling through videos. This can lead to a lack of productivity and can also lead to feelings of anxiety, stress, and depression. In addition, TikTok’s algorithm can lead to a negative body image, as users are bombarded with videos that promote unrealistic beauty standards.

Another concern is the potential for cyberbullying on the platform. TikTok has been known to be a breeding ground for online harassment, with users targeting others through comments, duets, and videos. The anonymity of the internet can embolden bullies and make it easier for them to hide their identity, which can be especially dangerous for young users who may not have the emotional maturity to handle such situations.

Privacy is also a major concern on TikTok. The app collects vast amounts of user data, including location information, search history, and browsing habits. This data is then used to target users with personalized ads and content, which can lead to a loss of privacy and a potential breach of personal information. Furthermore, TikTok has been accused of sharing user data with the Chinese government, which can have serious implications for national security and individual privacy.

Another danger of TikTok is the potential for exploitation and grooming. The app has been used by predators to target young users and groom them for sexual exploitation. The platform’s algorithm can make it easier for predators to find vulnerable users, and the anonymity of the internet can make it difficult for parents and law enforcement to track down perpetrators.

“We really encourage parents to have these conversations with their teenagers of what is the right amount of screen time,” Chew said. “I think there’s a healthy relationship that you should have with your screen and, as a business, you know, we believe that that balance needs to be met.” Chew said.

TikTok can also have a negative impact on physical health. The app’s addictive nature can lead to users spending hours on their phones, which can lead to eye strain, headaches, and neck pain. In addition, the app’s dance challenges, and viral trends can lead to users attempting dangerous stunts and injuring themselves.

What about crime on TikTok? Criminals and gangs proliferate on TikTok to commit crimes. Recently there was a challenge posted on TikTok. NBC news reported, “Videos circulating on the social media service TikTok have shown how people can start Kia and Hyundai models by using only a screwdriver and a USB cable. In Los Angeles, thefts of Hyundai and Kia cars increased by about 85% in 2022, now accounting for 20% of all car thefts in the city, according to the California attorney general’s office.”

In conclusion, while TikTok may seem like harmless fun, it poses several dangers to users. From mental health issues to cyberbullying, privacy concerns, exploitation, and physical health risks, it is important for users to be aware of the potential risks of the app. Parents should also monitor their children’s use of TikTok and educate them on how to stay safe online. It is up to users to be responsible and mindful of their behavior on the app to ensure a safe and positive experience.
