Survey Result: Americans' Verdict on TikTok Ban Emerges!

Forty-two percent of Americans are in favor of the U.S. government’s TikTok ban, a recent survey by Talker Research discovered. Out of the 2,000 participants, only 23% opposed the ban, while 31% remained indifferent. Interestingly, despite 42% of Gen Z and 35% of millennials actively using the app, 36% and 40% from the respective groups supported the ban.

The study unfolded just before President Biden signed the bill requiring ByteDance, TikTok’s parent company, to sell the platform within nine months to avoid a ban in the U.S. Surprisingly, only 25% of respondents expected to be affected by the potential ban, with 45% anticipating no impact at all. The primary concern among parents, stated by 47% of them, was the safety of their children using TikTok; 21% expressed significant worry about their child engaging with the app.

Most respondents, a striking 58%, admitted to not using the app. Of those surveyed, 39% declared they would be ‘very unimpacted’ if the ban were implemented. Top worries circulating among parents included exposure to inappropriate content (58%), potential obsession (51%), and data privacy (44%). Concerns about cyberbullying (43%), content sharing (39%), and meeting unknown individuals online (38%) were also prevalent, with 29% fearing a decreased attention span in their children.

Ultimately, only 20% of parents dismissed the idea of their child using TikTok as a non-issue. The survey’s results shed light on the diverse perspectives surrounding the popular social media app and the impending ban, reflecting the complex interplay between safety, privacy, and digital engagement among users and parents alike.
