“…we’ve certainly found in our most recent research, that TikTok had very quickly become one of the most popular platforms with teens in particular. We also knew that the youth in our research felt that it was important that the digital media literacy and online safety instruction that they got have the same aesthetic and ideally be presented in the same place as the platforms they were using. So all of that put together with the fact that TikTok was probably the platform that parents were least familiar with, because there are some kind of important ways that it’s different from some of the older social networks or video apps really pointed to the need for a specific resource for us to develop in partnership with TikTok that was going to educate parents and by extension teams about both how to get the most out of TikTok and ways to use it safely and ethically.”
