TikTok’s Confidence-Destroying Bold Glamour Filter is the Logical Product of Platforms Built for Consumerism

Rachel Griffin (@rachel_grfn) sees the beauty filter as the obvious endpoint of the underlying structural dynamics of the social media industry.…
With reference to @KathyCastorFL's comments in yesterday's #TikTok hearing in the House Energy & Commerce Committee:
"...criticizing TikTok as irresponsible or calling for it to add labels to videos where a filter is used – essentially suggesting that properly-informed users should be capable of resisting the unattainable beauty ideals they’re bombarded with – misses the bigger picture."

For ppl who are following the #Tiktok hearing at the Capitol Hill now: #Bytedance, the parent company of the social media app, established it's own Communist Party's committee in 2017.
Orders to compromise data can be ordered from the party's chain of command, not by state.
Data in Texas alone cannot safeguard it.
Third party audit of source code and algorithm will not solve it.
As long as there's a chance which a PRC-based Bytedance staff can touch upon US-based user data, the CCP chain of command can order them to extract it w/o consequences.
For more information on CCP's operation in PRC's tech companies, check out @rockngo's China Digital Times article.

🇫🇷 "Le conflit en #Ukraine doit se comprendre comme une guerre d'entrainement."

Retour sur l'audition de @ThomasGomart (@IFRI_), du 8 mars 2023, sur les enjeux de la prochaine LPM devant la Commission de la défense du @Senat.

🇫🇷 "Le PR se distingue très clairement de ses 4 prédécesseurs en ayant augmenté la dépense militaire [...]. Pourtant, la #LPM qui se dessine donne l'impression - au mieux - de pouvoir se maintenir au niveau qui était le nôtre précédemment." @ThomasGomart
🇫🇷 Une situation paradoxale qui "rappelle une évidence historique, malheureusement oubliée par les mandatures précédentes : on ne rattrape jamais en quelques années des décennies de désarmement." @ThomasGomart #LPM

🧵With the growing concerns about #TikTok, I finally decided to have a look to it. In this thread, I will cover a review of its privacy policy and a dynamic analysis of the Android app with @PiRogueTools and explain its limitations. Image
First of all, TikTok's privacy policy is quite explicit regarding what data is collected. Obviously, it collects the information the user provides such as profile information, contacts, payment card information or other third-party payment information. Image
Next, it collects a wide range of information such as keystroke patterns or rhythms, IP address, approx. location based on SIM card, IP or GPS location. It also detects and collects characteristics and features about the media by identifying objects and scenery. Image

Dutch government to ban use of TikTok on government phones

The government immediately advises government officials not to use apps from countries such as China and Russia on their work phones. In time, a complete ban will follow.#China #Russia #TikTok…
Minister van Huffelen says that the government goes further than discouraging 1 app. "We are opting for a structural solution that government officials can trust, with their work in a digital world. The government must be able to do its work safely, also via mobile devices."
Soon,officials will get phones on which only pre-approved apps can be installed and used. Spy-sensitive apps are banned altogether from that moment on.Exceptions are made if an app is needed for specific tasks of a government org(such as inspection&supervision or investigations).

🧵 Why the war in 🇺🇦 #Ukraine?

Beyond the #propaganda of war which makes us more stupid than we are, let us rather analyse the deep reasons of this fratricidal war.

#WarInUkraine #RussianUkrainianWar Image
1. First of all, let's leave aside any #TikTok analysis, in a #war it's always about desecrating the enemy, making him more horrible than he really is.

Ukraine is not full of Neo #Nazis, and the #Russian army is not a bunch of rapists — You won’t believe it? but it’s true.
2. Also, it’s not a language or culture war, all these micro societal fights have strictly no interest.

This is only a question of geopolitical / geographical position of #Ukraine in the world — and nothing else.

To be more convinced of this, let's go back a bit.

#TikTok, il social network cinese dove si postano video per lo più stupidi, ha sbaragliato la concorrenza (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter ecc.) tra i giovanissimi, vale a dire i cittadini elettori di domani.
Al contrario, in Cina i social network occidentali sono banditi per impedire alla gente di informarsi da fonti non governative e/o non controllabili dalla censura.
In sostanza, TikTok è una ciclopica pesca a strascico di scempiaggini e di banalità confezionate in modo seducente e distribuite con criteri scientifici ad un pubblico di ragazzini e di idioti.

TikTok ist ein Produkt der chinesischen Totalüberwachungsdiktatur. Gut wurde TikTok nun endlich bei uns verboten.

#tiktok #china #überwachung
TikTok gehört dem chinesischen Internet-Technologie­unternehmen ByteDance, einem der weltweit führenden Anwender von künstlicher Intelligenz. Seit 2015 ist es weltweit aktiv und in Europa vor allem durch das Videoportal TikTok bekannt.
Wie viele chinesische Unternehmen hat ByteDance ein internes Komitee der Kommunistischen Partei Chinas (KPCh), welches die Parteimitglieder unter den Mitarbeitern organisiert. Der Vizepräsident von ByteDance, Zhang Fuping, dient hierbei als Parteikomitee-Sekretär.

#TikTok ist Krebs... anscheinend geht gerade eine "Challenge" rum, Vorstellungen des Films #Creed3 bis zum Abbruch zu stören. Bundesweit berichten Kinos von schwerster Randale bis hin zu Krawallen, die ein Einschreiten der Polizei nötig machen. /MS…
Nun haben Jugendkrawalle eine Tradition bis mindestens in die 50er ("Halbstarkenkrawalle") und die englische Wikipedia führt gar eine Liste an historischen Internet-"Challenges"... /MS…
Dennoch muss sich #TikTok - wie zuvor auch #YouTube und andere Plattformen, man erinnere sich z.B. an "Happy Slapping", "Tide Pod Challenge" und andere fragwürdige virale Aktionen - der Frage stellen: wird auf der Plattform genug moderiert? /MS

A tenor de un hilo en el que explicaba la existencia de una App (sin promocionarla ni facilitar nombre) que permitía burlar la vigilancia familiar y los controles parentales, una lectora se plantea que cómo habría averiguado el menor del caso su existencia.
Preparen el ALMAX 👇👇
Este es un viejo conocido.

Por supuesto, dado que la mayoría de su público son menores y que lo que divulga son usos trampa/oscuros/deshonestos/atajos de la informática, ¿en qué red creéis que opera?

Por supuesto: #TikTok
Se trata de un influencer muy popular. Tiene conocimientos informáticos de buen nivel (aunque lo que enseña tampoco es que lo sitúe al nivel que pretende). Nunca explica ningún concepto.
Se dedica a enseñar a sus followers a "hacer trampas".
Me explico:

-Profesor Duchement, a nuestro hijo le han hecho phishing y nos han estafado.
-¿Desean ustedes que investigue la estafa?
-No. Deseamos que averigüe cómo se han puesto en contacto con él y recabado los datos. No debería haber manera. Tiene 11 años.
#CasoDeInformáticaForense 👇👇
Conozco así el Expediente Jordi, un niño de Barcelona que, de alguna forma indeterminada, ha acabado dando sus datos a phishers profesionales.
Unos 3.000€ han cargado en la tarjeta de su padre y todos se preguntan cómo (el niño incluido).
⚠️ Por supuesto, como aviso siempre, Jordi no se llama Jordi, no es de Barcelona y en este relato hay tanto detalle alterado, eliminado o agregado para proteger las identidades, que el caso debe ser leído como ficción.

Enshittification, you'll recall, is the lifecycle of the online platform: first, the platform allocates #surpluses to end-users; then, once users are locked in, those surpluses are taken away and given to business-customers. 3/

今天都在热议#blur的帅哥创始人铁顺,随手翻他的博客,发现了一篇比他的帅照更让人惊讶的文章。铁顺写的这篇《抖音的飞轮是如何启动的》含金量极高,他从抖音的成功中学到了很多,你完全能在Blur的运营和打法中看到这篇文章的影子,值得每一个web3 builder读一读(原文链接在下面) 1/n
在文章中,他很犀利地指出抖音能启动飞轮靠的完全不是大家常说的字节个性推荐引擎或者产品有多优秀,而是靠抖音运营铁军高强度的运营。他列举了很多例子:发动整个运营队伍去竞品抢用户,私信Musically的创作者用奖励吸引他们迁移(Vampire attack);去艺术院校招募长得好看的同学批量入驻等… 2/n
在完成第一轮优质内容创作者的暴力拉新后,抖音像服务皇帝一样地伺候这些创作者,给无微不至的关怀和礼物福利(Airdrop)。最初的内容排序方法并不是个性推荐,而是运营团队人工决定给哪些内容推流量。当出现反响比较好的内容,运营团队会向包括微信等全网平台搬运带有抖音水印的视频,进行引流.. 3/n

En este estudio de la @AmJNurs realizaron un estudio sobre los bailes de #enfermeras en vídeos de #TikTok.

Conclusión: violaron más de 300 principios del Código Deontológico Americano y de dos Guías del Buen Uso de Redes sociales que tienen en américa.

Hilo va⬇️
De los 52 vídeos del estudio:
➡️ El 77% tenía un baile coreografiado
➡️ El 52% el baile era con twerking.
➡️ El 25% contenían el hashtag #COVID sin hablar de ello.

Algunos de estos vídeos han alcanzado 19 millones de reproducciones. Fueron publicados con 1225 muertes al día.
el 96% de los vídeos mostraban algún elemento de información identificable como el nombre de una enfermera o del sistema hospitalario. Afortunadamente, no se desveló el dato de ningún paciente en estos vídeos.

"L'incubo di ogni genitore": TikTok offre ai predatori di bambini un percorso facile per contattare i bambini.…
Una delle principali piattaforme per lo sfruttamento sessuale dei minori negli Stati Uniti , secondo le forze dell'ordine, con gli adulti predatori che trovano sempre più facile contattare e manipolare i minori attraverso l'app cinese.

Dall'avvento di Internet, i predatori di bambini hanno avuto un'opzione facile per entrare in contatto con minori per rapporti sessuali. Tuttavia, si dice che TikTok stia peggiorando questo problema a causa della sua enorme popolarità tra i giovani.
