Pipe Cleaner Crafts B:
what is interesting is how other companies, such as Google, Instagram and other US video platforms respond to it (and I mean - publicly)? They will definitely benefit from the ban, right? On some level, this ban is good for American companies. You know, I was born in Russia. I see a huge difference between countries in how they approach security, copyrights, privacy, and so on. Not every one is playing by the rules. great video, as always. Also, I am reading now that Microsoft may buy them, that's interesting and makes a lot of sense, the value of the app will probably drop now.

But China has YouTube blocked. Dont they?
Nick Nimmin
Nick Nimmin:
Not being able to collect taxes on it probably helps with this decision. Not from the creator side but the company side. Not having full access to the data probably helps too. As well as not being able to control what’s on it by not being able to try to push news and other US opinions on people through the app. I think it’s WAY more about that than the privacy issue. We’re being tracked and logged inside and out through everything we do, like you mentioned in the video, China having it is one thing but the US NOT having that I think is another side of it.

No panic... Either TikTok goes in US hands or US bans TikTok and another US platform takes its place. It's all about data control.
I'm from Croatia (EU), but I think that's what's going to happen. Either way, there's always something or someone to fill the market gap.

This makes no sense taking away the fun. People like myself use Tik Tok for their businesses too. The general manager said in a video on Tik Tok that it wasn’t going anywhere hopefully it stays. I feel like it’s more important things to worry about than a social media platform. The president should focus on more important things.

And most of the US users are teenagers or younger either using it or creating cringy content. The sad part is that it's the data, not the content created for TikTok that is the problem. No one blames the users or creators - this is to make sure the data can not become weaponized.

What an irony. The country of democracy and freedom are walking into Internet censorship. Why can't all governments in the world stay away from Internet. I really don't want to use VPN all the time, or have to constantly switch apps when I'm in differnet countries.

It‘s OUR RIGHTS to choose apps, not theirs

In all fairness, how do we know if China’s hand wasn’t “caught in the cookie jar”?? Obviously we aren’t privy to all national security information. It looks as if TikTok might continue under new ownership, so maybe it’s not “going away”. 🤷🏼‍♂️ I suppose we’ll know soon enough. Any word from Gary Vee yet?? I’m looking forward to his take. Although I can guess what much of his response will be. lol Thanks Roberto!
Always helpful 💥👊🏼

DrexFactor Poi
DrexFactor Poi:
I don’t think the Tik Tok ban will last if indeed it gets implemented in the first place. It opens up way too big a can of worms politically if an Executive Order can just shut down a platform like that. All that said, totally agree with the platform agnostic approach to content. I switched to this strategy at the beginning on Quarantine and have been astounded at how well it has helped me to grow my audience, views, and income across the board.
Gamrison
Gamrison:
Welp...I JUST got to almost 3000 followers on Tik Tok, over half a million views in one months time because of how well you can blow up from zero on it, posting the funnier parts of my Let's Plays on it of all things lol, but I guess it is time to quickly try again to get them to jump ship to my other platforms with another stream or something. Idk if that will work since I have tried twice and some people don't wanna move platforms but oh well lol!

Question of the Day: I HOPE NOT! I would love to continue to use it to funnel an audience to here and my other platforms at the moment in a growth I have never seen before. July was the best month Analytics wise. But should it happen maybe Youtube will make a decent clone, because of how many Tik Tokers have already made Youtube channels so maybe the audiences will come to Youtube anyways, thus supporting said clone? People think the Vine Invasion was "bad", you ain't seen nothing yet.

As far as your question of the day, I heard that China was up to no good with this app about 2 months ago. I figured someone heard the same thing and started building a similar platform. So I thing I new one might come outta nowhere...

Adventures with the Ethington's
Adventures with the Ethington's:
This has been on the table for sometime now. Sadly people should have been wise and started other channels on YT, pages on FB and Instagram. What people don't understand is China is a communist country and if their Government says give them the info then the owners of the business will. My privacy and security is worth far more. There are so many platforms to tap into. People flock to TikTok in my opinion because it is far easier to become popular. The difference between TiKTok and US companies are 1 is in a Communist country and the others are here in the States with laws that protect privacy.
