Rupert Murdoch tackled TikTok hard

When Rupert Murdoch is complaining about you, you are doing something very right or just wrong. His wife Jerry Hall (Mick Jaggers ex-wife) showed a TikTok video to Rupert, he instantly hated TikTok and the very idea of it. Several of his newspapers aroung then took TikTok to task.   

The Sun then tackled TikTok hard. The main thrust being that TikTok needs to respond to concerns about their users' wellbeing. The Sun wants TikTok to open a European office, to actively look after the portal and European users from whom The Sun, it makes the bulk of its profits. No profit without representation.

The Sun won this one. TikTok is opening and staffing offices in Dublin, Ireland as of December 2020.

How to Keep your child and yourself safe. The importance of this cannot be more important in todays tech world. We are at its mercy if we do not take care and this book certainly helps. I would recommend it for all families that want to keep their children safe in this digital world. I have no doubt the stories in it are true and scary. We are all vulnerable if we are not careful. I would give this book 10 out of 10.
