"Trump says he will ban TikTok as the app could be used to collect the personal data of Americans"

Ban Facebook and Google too? Their data collection is so much more powerful. Never seen TikTok scripts anywhere while most apps and sites send your personal data to FB and Google.


TikTok the app does a _lot_ more data collection than either of those though, is my understanding.

And well, I'm sure you're aware of the obvious - the real question is why e.g. the EU hasn't banned Facebook and Google yet.

@pettter @pettter there's nothing inherently wrong with products and services that google and facebook create. it's more that they take some bad actions thanks to their business model so eu tries to regulate them

Actually, there's plenty wrong with both of their business models.

@pettter it's difficult to compare the scale of them. tiktok is tiny compared to what the other two do. pretty much every american is tracked by google and facebook no matter whether they have an account or whether they install their app
