Who would have thought that in the year 2020, black people would still be targeted to the point of boycotting an entertainment platform. If you are yet to catch up on...whatever the hell is happening on TikTok, then let me fill you in. Over the past few months (and probably even before that), there has been outrage over TikTok's incapability to monitor racism. There has been countless amounts of videos circulating that depict racial stereotypes, slurs, and just general blatant racism.
Welcome! I'm going to tell you about this very interesting individual who's managed to build up a social media network of over half a million followers, it all comes back to his consistency and passion.
By now, it’s hard to ignore the prevalence of TikTok. Whether it’s the easy ability to go viral on the app, or merely our boredom as we stay at home amid coronavirus mandates today, TikTok is capturing the hearts of Americans from every demographic.
The world is constantly changing, and the people who can adapt to those changes generally have the easiest time. This is especially true when it comes to the internet since there seems to be a new trend every few months. A perfect example of this is the sudden boom of TikTok in recent years. If you haven't invested any time in TikTok for marketing purposes, here's why you need to change that sooner rather than later.
Do you ever those moments when you’re doing something cool and then either you or someone else goes “Wait, wait, wait, I gotta put this on my snap.” or, “Let me just get this real quick for the gram.”? I imagine you do and it’s not an uncommon occurrence Millennials-Gen Z, and sometimes Boomers, once they figure out how to use their devices, they love to take pictures of everything.
Social media is the perfect way to stay in touch with friends and family, while also engaging with content of personal interest. However, all that glitters is not gold.

I thought that having a studygram means you are smart and always have to get A/A*'s.
Whether you want to admit it or not, the topic of TikTok is slowly trickling into everyday life more and more today. Previously labeled as just another “teen app” that was not taken seriously by marketers until recently, TikTok has demonstrated that it’s not only here to stay – but that it could give the Facebook empire a serious run for its money.
So May has swiftly come around and it's fair to say that 2020 has been fairly awful so far. It's been a bitter cocktail made with a measure of environmental disasters with a swig of political uproar, and a double-shot of Covid-19. With all these horrors mounting ever-higher, to what source of comfort or relief can we turn to to help us endure all the anxiety and inconvenience of our "new" daily lives? Tik Tok.
In recent years, the debate about social media censorship has become increasingly relevant. Every so often in the news, you'll hear of someone having their account censored by one of the big social media networks for posting something that goes against the terms and conditions or, rather frighteningly, something that doesn't break any rules but is against what the networks are all about. In other words, you can get banned for posting something that people disagree with or find offensive. People all across the political spectrum have fallen foul of social media censoring for expressing views that are 'too extreme'. But is it right for social media networks to censor people?
We live in a world in which sharing our thoughts and opinions online has become normal. Most of the time the information we share online has no significant effect on our lives. However, what you post on social media platforms or share online can have serious repercussions on pending legal cases.

We have summarized a few examples of how social media can affect the outcome of a case and why it’s important to analyze carefully what you share online.
