TikTok, Really?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with REMM Realty brokered by eXp Realty DRE# 530118

As Realtors, agents, and lenders we are supposed to be smart and intelligent, and, in addition, we have an obligation to keep this country safe. I thought everyone knew that TikTok is owned and operated by the Chinese government and collects information about every single person that uses that app. Now all apps collect information but the Chinese government has a different reason for collecting data. They want to do anything and everything possible to destroy this country. They started with mostly teenagers who don’t have a clue and don’t care enough and soon, they will grow up to be adults and let the Chinese government have even more higher level information. That adult realtors are using that app is just beyond my comprehension.


Using TikTok is FOOLISH and very likely dangerous.

You won't get any argument from me on this particular issue, Jim. I've avoided TikTok since hearing of the China connection and have never been on it.

I do not use TikTok . Many do not know that there are two versions of it . The US version has become a Hedonistic sewer that makes us look like a totally depraved society .While China’s version is very straight laced , no gross stuff or porno . Their children are encouraged to excel in school and respect elders  . I’m no fan of China and believe they are hoping that TikTok will help destroy our society.

There are some social media pages that make sense, but kids go for quick and popular.

Have not installed the app and will not, James. Neither will I encourage anyone to use it but when some people just want to be seen and heard so badly, they often overlook the obvious!

TikTok advertising has proven to be highly effective, and it has played a crucial role in providing greater recognition for many small companies and brands. The video creators on the platform are truly talented, and thanks to Tiktok Video Downloader Snaptik, I always have access to amazing videos that I can set as my wallpaper. TikTok has been a real breakthrough, enabling creators to reach the audience they deserve and showcase their talents.
