Tik Tok offers the ability to make short videos with music, stickers, filters and other special effects. It is the worlds most far reaching chat site. It is, in essence, live streaming on steroids. There are only two privacy settings: Private or Public. Kids as young as 9-years-old are playing on it even though the parental warning is that you need to be 16 to use it. The ONLY reason most kids are on Tik Tok is to reach thousands of people and become famous or discovered. In pedophile vocabulary, this is called “available and vulnerable.” It should also be noted that Tik Tok uses a CHILD'S FACIAL RECOGNITION to detect facial expressions. Kids think this is really cool because they can add special effects to make them look funny or cute. But, what no one is saying is whether this facial recognition is being stored or if it will later be shared as user data, which is often done through artificial intelligence. These technologies will change our world so PAY ATTENTION MOM AND DAD!
