This little girl’s got it. Social Media is not that important

Well, well. I think this child in this article has this. I saw it last night, and its a good article to read.

The thing is, I think Social Media is nice to have, but I’m not on it all the time, and like this child, anyone who I regularly talk to I can text, email, call or the like.

I’m not saying in any way that Social Media is bad. I’ve never utalized it the way some people do.

I don’t share my life like others do. I definitely don’t use it to check in, although I’ve discussed looking at one system and it was a short period of time and very seldom.

With that said, the parent I believe this is, is a teacher by trade.

I understand that everyone is also saying that TikTok is a national security risk. But the only real risk I can observe is one where they put a supposed keylogger on the device. When you do that, all bets are off.

As I have written in the past, banning TikTok is not the answer. Getting them to remove the application that is known as the keylogger is the first step.

Of course they’ll claim that they don’t have a keylogger. I’ll say, if they don’t, let someone evaluate the code and tell us whether there is a logger or not once for all.

The article is an interview style and was edited for length and clarity.

I sent it to the TSB list very early in the morning, early enough for someone like Scott to see it if he happens to spot it.

I do have my name on a number of platforms, but I surely don’t post like tons of others do.

Please feel free to read this interview, and i’d be interested on what other people say.

How a computer scientist talks to her daughter about TikTok

Michael writes:

Nadya Bliss and her 12-year-old daughter Coco have been talking about technology for as long as the two can remember. Nadya is a computer scientist who is also the executive director of the Global Security Initiative at Arizona State University. Technology and national security issues take up much of her time. While she loves tech and embraces many of its benefits, she is acutely aware of its darker sides, too. As a parent of a tween, the topic of social media — and especially TikTok — is commonplace in their household and among their friends. While many lawmakers and national security experts in Washington and elsewhere around the country are calling for an outright TikTok ban, those concerns are lost on the many millions of tweens and teens who spend hours on the app every day. Nadya and Coco, who is a sixth grader and among the minority of her peers without TikTok, recently talked about how the app — and the omnipresence of technology in just about every kid’s life today — is changing parenting and childhood. The following conversation between Nadya and Coco has been edited for clarity and length. 

I sent it to TSB’s Nicholas Jackson who said that this was great. What do other’s think?
