With that said, in the past year, Forbes has listed TikTok as the most downloaded application globally. Specifically, TikTok has achieved 656 million downloads, 111 million more than the second application, Instagram. A number enough to make many people see the popularity of TikTok in many countries. This has contributed to making the founder of TikTok one of the richest people in China under the age of 40.
With the popularity and ease of making short clips, TikTok has become a trend in many markets, including Vietnam. Also because of the great popularity, the number of users and the content posted on this platform is also “innumerable”. However, one of the issues that makes netizens concerned about the safety of TikTok is the content that users post on the platform.
Besides interesting, attractive, funny and useful video clips, there are also many clips with depraved and vulgar content. At all costs to get viewers and followers, many TikTokers have made a lot of content to follow “junk” trends with the desire to be famous. After the trend of “buying handcuffs for your children” that once made MXH wobble, in the last months of 2021, many TikTokers have made extremely harmful content.
Surely users of TikTok and popular social networking platforms like Facebook still cannot forget the trend of “turning into evil” with negative, vulgar and depraved thoughts. From pretending to be *** to go to bed with his girlfriend to the content/images/caption and the words appearing in the clip are extremely vulgar, depraved, even defying morals and ethics. fine customs.

Not all but a lot of Gen Z today have created content that goes beyond the limits of ethics. TikTok is used for entertainment, but “thanks to” content that violates standards like this, many people think that TikTok is really toxic and extremely negatively affects the development of thinking, aesthetics and morality of people. young generation, especially children.
