Surprising Results On Poll About Potential Ban Of TikTok

The U.S. government is considering a ban of TikTok if the company doesn't divest from the Communist Party of China. There is some evidence that the Chinese are collecting sensitive information not only on the users but anyone in the users contact list as the app asks for permission to all of your data when you sign up. There are further concerns that the app algorithm has been tweaked in a way that feeds anti American content to younger users.

A poll of 2-thousand U.S. adults finds:

42% of Gen Z and 35% of millennials say they regularly use TikTok.

36% of Gen Z and 40% of millennials still support the ban.

Only 25% of all respondents say they’d be affected by the ban and 45% say it won’t impact them at all.

58% of those polled report that they don’t use TikTok at all.

47% of parents of teen age children are concerned that their kids using the app, with 21% admitting they’re “very” worried about their child using TikTok.

Parents’ biggest concerns about the app are their child seeing inappropriate or disturbing content (58%), them becoming too obsessed with it (51%), concerns over data privacy (44%) and fears about cyberbullying (43%).

20% of parents say they’re not at all concerned about their child using TikTok.
