Opinion: United States: The Florida of the World
Growing up in the south and watching the recent Congressional hearings, I can't help but hear my grandparents complaining and questioning the world's changes without the knowledge to understand them. I come from a generation raised by our grandparents, the children of divorce, and the social media uprising that started with the infamous AOL. Even if my grandparents didn't understand AOL, they certainly were intrigued by it. Unaware of the dangers of trafficking within that realm or the many child predators looking online. To the many kids lying about their age, sex, and location. There was never an uproar in Government, a congressional pull for a ban, or media coverage. The social media launch was a new time, and even now, the upcoming generation can thank us for the safety measures in place today as we battled on the front line to understand the danger.

The Chinese-owned platform is said to have 150 million US monthly users, leading to concerns about its potential use by the Chinese Communist Party for intelligence gathering on Americans. Furthermore, there are worries that it could be used to shape young, developing American minds by sharing content or information that conflicts with US values or political freedom. Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle expressed suspicion about TikTok's intentions. Members were preoccupied with the possibility that young, developing American minds could be shaped by a torrent of Chinese-made content or information that could suppress US principles of political freedom and human rights or create confusion or false narratives about American foreign policy.
