At a girls group meeting last year I was faced with a teen that kept looking at her phone every break. Laughing and very introverted. “What is she doing” I inquired of my own teen?” “TicTok”, was the reply. This began a conversation about time.
When faced with the concept of TicTok I felt a revulsion that was knee-jerk. I have tried to formulate exactly what about this online social networking app repulsed me but came up short. This article by thinker and writer Joshua Gibbs helped me formulate my feeling into actionable words. TicTok is a time killer and that is not honourable, good or virtuous.
