Daring Fireball: Kansas Governor Imposes TikTok Ban on State-Issued Devices

There’s two things here for me:

  1. Why so much fear around TikTok specifically? In theory their privacy risks are the same with any app or social network. I don’t think they are unique in this regard.
  2. I think this is another reason we should really strive to move social networking to open and decentralized protocols and solve the problems inherit to this model. The risks of centralized aggregators is too great.
