Tappets go tick. That's as close as I'm getting.

I'd read the terms and conditions very carefully as they can do what they like with access to your phone's info and settings.

Not sure about TikTok, still trying to understand Facetube, Twitbook and Tindergram.

You're one of your kind.

My favourite in this topic is the experiment a Finnish cyber security company did in London at 2014.

Apparently no children were exchanged, although folks did get their access to the 'free' wi-fi.

The story is that because it's owned by the Chinese it's a really sketchy way of stealing all of your phone's information under the premise of you having fun.

It's a bit like Facebook in that regard.

True, no argument there and MV is as close to social media that I get. However unless you are off the grid and use only cash privacy is a thing of the past. Oh I could go on but let's just say there is a good reason the US govt will not allow Huawei devices on its network and the Chinese will not use Cisco. So many rabbit holes…

I think MV probably is not the right demographic for TikTok , we tend to be a bit old

VERY TRUE of Vespa riders in general based on my YouTube channel's analytics. Obviously this data isn't complete, it's just Google's best guess based on what they know of logged in accounts etc. but based on my website analytics data on my Vespa related pages, it's probably fairly accurate.

Back on topic though, in my early 30s and I don't use tiktok, also for trust/privacy concerns.

I have so many nudes on my phone. I owe it to these women to keep it secure

Apparently according to YouTube ads tiktok is the greatest craze in Wales. Never even heard anyone mention it, kids or grandkids.

Meh :-\

Just don't reuse passwords and be overly interesting and you really don't have to worry much. If you enjoy Tik-Tok and it makes you happy then there is no pressing need to stop. I'm a pretty avid gamer and for all I know my PS5 and SeriesX are gathering all sorts of data on me. Not to mention my bank, YouTube, Netflix,Disney, HBO, Peacock, Amazon, my bank, etc, etc, etc.

I deal with this stuff professionally and choose not to live in fear but just try and be smart enough about it. I'm not big on social media as I'm really not that social TBH but am a gamer, geek and movie buff. As a result I have every streaming service and tech gadget you can shake a stick at. Except the stick would probably be safe as it's pretty analogue..

maybe we can ask Jess to create a Tiki wiki section in which we could impersonate other members with the videos and I would have an excuse to talk to myself and create different characters.
