TikTok addiction now seems to have become a thing to speak about openly, on social media. This is because Twitterati have taken to the micro-blogging platform to state that they have a TikTok addiction – could also be in a lighter vein.
It now seems that TikTok users are not shying away from reporting that there is indeed a TikTok problem affecting their psyche. In this regard, check out below prominent reactions from netizens (primarily Twitterati). At this point in time, it is worth remembering that a TikTok ban was also contemplated not too long ago; there also have been continued discussions on whether the popular video sharing application (app) deserves to continue in India.
Finally, TikTok addiction has led to deaths; but the final point worth pondering over during such circumstances is; “Why overuse and misuse technology?”
As far as safety is concerned, TikTok from its end has the Risk Warning tag that tags "dangerous" videos in a bid to warn users not to try dangerous stuff at home or to not over-indulge in risky outdoor activities. Also, there are other features such as the Restricted Mode, Screen Time Management ( allows users, including parents, to set up time limits of 40, 60, 90 or 120 minutes. If users reach their screen time limit, they will need to enter a password to continue to use TikTok), Age Gate, and the ability to filter comments among other general safety-related functionality.
