6/24 (Sat.) TikTok's CEO on its future -- and what makes its algorithm different (Host: Janet)

文章 janet12tw »

Hi Everybody,

I was looking for a topic for Yoyo's meeting & came across this interesting speech given by TikTok's CEO in
Ted Talks as below.
You could also watch the video with the Chinese subtitle & read the transcript in the link as below:

https://www.ted.com/talks/shou_chew_tik ... transcript

He also mentioned a Tiktok content creator called Chemical Kim.
Here is a video I found in her channel as below:

I believe you all have had your lives touched through TikTok, through your kids and other people in your lives.
So let's discuss about this APP & find out why the U.S. and other countries want to ban or restrict TikTok.

Session One Questions:
1. Have you ever used Tiktok? What kind of contents do you like?
2. Have you ever heard of booktok? Could you explain what is it?
3. Do you think Tiktok is all about dancing & singing? What other contents do you find that you think they are interesting?

Session Two Questions:
1. Why the U.S. and other countries want to ban or restrict TikTok?
2. What measures the CEO of Tiktok said they will take to protect the data security in the video?
3. In the video, what does he say that tiktok do to protect children & teenagers?

Mr. Chew is my personal hero now. He was like a small knight fighting giant dragons in those congressional questioning, with his hands tied behind and was not allowed to strike back. And yet he somehow came out with some smart points which fought back beautifully. I don't know if TicToc is controlled by China or if it's evil, but his debates was really something.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.

to be honest i have no idea about TikTok, but based on the video, this guy is good. actually i have watched some clips about how he responded to those congressmen's stupid questions. this guy is really good. after watching them, not only i find how good he is, but also how pathetic so called democracy is to have these congressmen voted as people's representatives.

to say the least, with only the imagination of theoretical and hypothetical risk and without any proof, "how can all of these countries and our own FBI director have been wrong?? "

right, the majority is always right. :lol:
i might be a cynic and, a sceptic as well but, i'm definitely not a bad person!!

Today I read hardcopy newspapers at a breakfast shop and happened to see the below in an article.

去年牛津路透社新聞研究所發現,新冠疫情和俄烏戰爭最大受益者是TikTok。路透更發現,已有七成美國新聞媒體活躍於TikTok,媒體認為TikTok創造另種網路「人際接觸」,提供年輕族群更親密連結。如果網路上的文本網網相連,只有到社群所在之地,媒體才有曝光或表現可能。這就是傳播學者Castells的媒體基本正當性,現在就是要接受「網路節點就是力量」。
