ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “People and businesses are removing their social media accounts | ABC News” – below is their description.

With all the talk about online security and privacy, you may be considering removing your social media presence.

But in a time when many of us seem to be connected online, does disconnecting mean you no longer exist?

It’s not just a question for individuals, but also businesses like the British cosmetics retailer, Lush, which has decided to step away from Instagram, Facebook, Tiktok and Snapchat.

The company says they’re doing this until these platforms “take action to provide a safer environment” for users.

    TikTok, known in China as Douyin, is a Chinese video-sharing social networking service owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based Internet technology company founded in 2012 by Zhang Yiming. It is used to create short music, lip-sync, dance, comedy and talent videos of 3 to 15 seconds, and short looping videos of 3 to 60 seconds.

    ByteDance first launched Douyin for the Chinese market in September 2016. Later, TikTok was launched in 2017 for iOS and Android in most markets outside of mainland China; however, it only became available worldwide, including the United States, after merging with another Chinese social media service on 2 August 2018.
