16 August 2022
In June, TikTok began to route US user data through Oracle’s cloud infrastructure.

But you get COVERTLY banned and sp ied upon

They can suppress your ideas from being circulated and control data in the backend

But I guess this is fine because as long as something is ok on the surface all must be well Huh?

Put 20$ in you bank account and in 10 years you still have 20$ all is well nothing was taken from you Huh

But if some one held you up and took if from you by force you'd be outr aged because it's on the surface and direct

But let's print money and let you still see 20$ but essentially Ro b you in the shadows.. everyone accepts this no problem or much less kick back because it's covert... See the comparison here???

It's also wrong to swarm in an take over a country.. well that's direct so it raises an alarm.. ok let's give your country a loan instead and leverage debt over you.. that's covert so you don't think it's as crue l and everyone moves on with life

    You get to comment "openly" but guess what the traction or exposure of said comment can be shadow banned.. algorithms can make it essentially not meet the eyes of people but you can feel good about it not being "deleted"

    Look how social media was used to manipul ate elections, look how media was used to basically engineer peoples opinion to the point we're they believed the opinions they have were their own

    That is way more de adly make the people think they made a decision on their own

    Same concept behind inflation people can print money and steal from you because on the surface the numerical figure didn't change

    You get to live under fake demo cracy

    There is such a thing as overt and covert control

    But sadly everyone is obsessed with OVERT and turn a blind eye and underestimate COVERT tac tics

      Sonu4678, 17 Aug 2022AH! Here we go, another Chinese sympathizer. Isn't it... moreNotice how I made my point without name calling

      Can't you just resist the urge of low quality discussion and focus on my argument

      Are you implying that the US DOES NOT have global access to data that the rest of the world doesn't have the same privilege??

      You would be seriously dishonest if you think so or you just don't know any better

      Ever heard of 5 eyes? FBI etc last time I checked China isn't apart of this

      Do you not understand how America destabilises multiple countries suppress economies using said data manipulation.. do you know how many wa r s they have instigated

      What about snowden maybe we live on different planets or something

        So BuzzFeed, a platform most known for their woke content, "discovered" that TikTok (which doesn't censor right-wing users and doesn't promote LGBT stuff as much as Twitter or Reddit does) sends user data to the Chinese government? Sure, seems legit.

        What I see here is a company that doesn't depend on an ESG score, that's being targeted by leftists for not giving a crap about a stupid political agenda.

They did this with Huawei now they are doing it to Tiktok and trying to steal its algorithm so they can give to their companies Facebook, instagram, snapchat to use. So much for the free and fake market. Everything US tells you about some regime of a country trust me US is worse

                  If I were in China, and I posted the above comment, I would be locked up the same day.

                  On the other side I can say that the USA government is corrupt and insane, and you don't get locked up.

                  See the difference.

                        I'd rather give my data to straight to the chinese government than to Oracle! Just read up about how Oracles still CEO Larry Ellison defends the global surveillance by the US and many of the wrongdoings of his government. He constantly changes political views only for his personal advantage and would even sell his mother if it would benefit him. HE IS 100% PSYCHOPATHIC AND DOESN'T RESPECT ANYONE'S RIGHTS EXCEPT HIS OWN! NEVER TRUST ORACLE!

                          Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Instagram and Many Other US Websites Collect User Data Then Whole World Should ban them US Market Should be Down Now And their Hypocrisy Toward other Countries

                            Even in my country where the media constantly attacks China and things like TikTok, the newspapers found TikTok to be safer, and respond faster to illegal content compared to all the American apps.

                            Meanwhile, Snapchat is consistently being reported as a hotspot for pedophiles, but no auditing or investigation is ever done -- beacuse it's owned by America.

                            They just keep making up reasons for trying to get TikTok data or own and control it.

                              No, Google or FB tracking you to better sell you underwear is NOT the same as an authoritarian state tracking you and manipulating you. Get it?

                                Isn't it funny that Chinese have access to the data worldwide but not the other way round?
                                The great firewall is protecting Chinese data and at the same time Chinese companies are taking advantage of the data worldwide. That seems like a win-win situation for China and the world has a problem with that.

                                      Tiktok? Haha... Sorry. No one believes that watching belly shake videos.
                                      In fact, No bigger manipulators other than USA and its tech companies themselves.
                                      Spying, using user data and lying about it.
                                      People dont believe US anymore.
                                      World is getting multipolar lately.
                                      Sorry Oracle, Facebook, YouTube ,Apple, Google pad fines and found guilty multiple times of using customer data and accessing it without consent and sharing with US government.

                                        Viv, 16 Aug 2022Worst social media app under the sunAgree. Their user keep spamming YouTube comment with template "I just came from TikTok" or "TikTok, anyone?"

                                        Any TikTok trend are something's repeat from another social media (which was popular there long time ago), and yet those said it came from TikTok. Seriously, even any kind of life hack there just copying 5 minute crafts
