June’ TikTok controversy:

Senators Demand Answers: TikTok’s Data Management Under Scrutiny as CEO Faces Tough Questions

(A.P.) NEW YORK — After recent news stories raised concerns about how the Chinese-owned social media platform (TikTok) manages some sensitive information, two U.S. senators have asked TikTok to clarify what they called “misleading or inaccurate” statements about how it stores and offers access to U.S. user data.

Senators Demand Answers: TikTok's Data Management Under Scrutiny as CEO Faces Tough Questions

U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal and Marsha Blackburn wrote to TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew on Tuesday, citing a Forbes article that claimed the company had stored financial data, such as Social Security numbers and tax I.D.s, of American content creators who are paid by the service on servers in China.

The senators also cited another report from The New York Times from late May, which claimed that TikTok staff frequently shared user data, including the information on some American users’ driver’s licenses, on an internal messaging app called Lark that staff members from the Beijing-based parent company of TikTok, ByteDance, could easily access.

TikTok’s Unconventional Auto Theft Takes the Nation by Storm: Hyundai and Kia Left Vulnerable

Hyundai and Kia released software nearly three months ago to stop an uptick in car thefts brought on by a security issue. It was made public on TikTok and other social media platforms. It hasn’t resolved the issue thus far. The rate at which criminals steal cars continues to be troubling nationwide.

TikTok's Unconventional Auto Theft Takes the Nation by Storm: Hyundai and Kia Left Vulnerable

The Associated Press collected data from 7 U.S. cities and found that despite the companies’ efforts to address the bug that makes 8.3 million vehicles relatively easy targets for thieves, the frequency of Hyundai and Kia thefts is still rising.

Minneapolis police have received 1,899 theft reports involving Kia and Hyundai this year, roughly 18 times as many as during the same period in 2022. Safety officials say the corporations’ software implementation has been far too slow. 

According to the carmaker, approximately 210,000, or nearly 5% of the 4.5 million Kia vehicles eligible for the patch, have the software loaded. About 2.8 million of the impacted owners have received alerts, according to Kia, and the company anticipates notifying every one of them by the end of this month.

New TikTok Features: 

TikTok Enters the Search Game: Discover a New World with TikTok’s iOS and Android Search Widgets.

There is now a TikTok search widget accessible if you use an iPhone or Android. TikTok promotes itself as a search tool in the U.K. It’s part of the platform’s effort to position itself as more than just a social media site or search engine. According to Mashable, an advertisement with the slogan “Search it with TikTok” ran in the U.K. earlier this year. 

TikTok search widget

Google’s Knowledge & Information unit is overseen by Senior Vice President Prabhakar Raghavan, who stated last year that social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok are used as tools for some search inquiries. Remember that to access the widgets, your phone must download the TikTok app.

Discover What’s Nearby: TikTok’s Game-Changing ‘Nearby’ Feature Unleashes Personalized Feeds!

The social media network TikTok is developing new “nearby” features that will let users identify nearby users and local restaurant recommendations. “We’re always thinking about new ways to bring value to our community and enrich the TikTok experience,” the TikTok spokesman stated.

TikTok Nearby feature

This includes a new feature that allows video creators to tag videos with their location. Only a few weeks prior, TikTok unveiled a brand-new feature called Series. With this function, content producers can charge for 20-minute videos to watch.

How to use the Nearby feature?

TikTok’s ‘nearby’ function is now only accessible to a small group of users in Southeast Asia. If the experiment succeeds, users worldwide could use the new capability in the following months.

Dance to the Rhythm of TikTok’s Global Community with Sonic Identity:

TikTok is constantly exploring ways to improve the experience of its global community, and one of these is via utilizing sound. TikTok continues to be used by over 1 billion worldwide for inspiration, entertainment, and social interaction. 

TikTok Sonic Identity

TikTok hence intended their musical identity to represent something similar. For this reason, they came up with a straightforward, two-beat onomatopoeic sound sign with a melodic twist that inspires creativity, authenticity, and a sense of belonging.

TikTok’s Sonic Logo’ Roots:

  • A sound that acknowledges TikTok’s musical legacy and inspires innovation at every step. 
  • Music that crosses generations and strengthens TikTok’s reputation as a welcoming and secure space.
  • A distinctive and upbeat sound that signifies TikTok as a platform where entertainment, creativity, and discovery have no boundaries.

Most TikTok videos created in the United States, Brazil, Philippines, Bangladesh, and Egypt use this sonic DNA track as their music. TikTok is eager to explore how its distinctive audio identity will inspire and unite the world community.
