TikTok Under Siege Again Techstream with Shelly Palmer and Seth Everett

    • Technology

Shelly's been a TikTok superstar for a while, and Seth has been using it to push his other podcasts forward. Just about everyone else has been using the app, too, as earlier this year TikTok became the most-visited website in the world, more popular than even Google.

Last week, FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr gave the CEOs of Apple and Google until July 8 to respond to his open letter asking them to remove TikTok from their app stores.

Everyone is weaponizing data. In this episode, we wonder: Why is the FCC singling out TikTok? We talk about the companies weaponizing data that we SHOULD be worried about, where you draw the line, and a conflict that's beginning to bubble up. Plus, we offer advice on practical actions about what to do next.
