This week, Facebook and TikTok have selfishly hogged much of the spotlight, but both would probably rather it was someone else’s turn for a bit of media or political scrutiny. We will dig into the details below, but suffice to say, two of the world’s most popular social networks could do with a few friends right now.
To cut to the chase…
No… I don’t think TikTok will get banned in the U.S just yet.
Yes… Because Trump, it could well happen (in some form) in the near future
No…. Facebook’s civil rights audit (published this week) didn’t do Zuck any favours.
Yes… Facebook is going to have to do A LOT more to appease ad boycotters, and well, a lot of other people too!
And don’t miss the ‘And finally…’ in this week’s edition of Geekout. Social media managers: You’ll never have felt so seen :)
