Tik-Tok is a social media app that gives people the opportunity to share minute-long videos with friends, family, or the entire world. Teens love the app because it is a way to express themselves. Other people can view other people’s videos and then combine their videos with others. These videos can end up being really cool.  On the other hand, parents do not always agree with this app. One reason is because there is some inappropriate content. Another reason parents don’t agree with it is because Tik-Tok users can have contact with strangers. Also, all users can see all the content without creating an account, and all accounts are pubic. Even though these things can be issues, Tik-Tok has implemented safety features like a digital well-being element which is a password protected and a restricted mode to filter inappropriate content. You can also set accounts to private and manage who can comment, duet, and direct message. There is also a way to report inappropriate content and delete followers without them knowing. Just like anything online, there are risks of this app. Just make sure to be safe while using it!
