Is Tik­Tok going bye-bye in the US? Here’s the low­down for all you scroll mas­ters out there:

Hold on to your FYPs! ByteDance, the com­pa­ny behind Tik­Tok, might actu­al­ly shut down the app in the US rather than sell it This comes after a new law that could poten­tial­ly ban Tik­Tok from app stores.

Why the dra­ma? US law­mak­ers are wor­ried that Chi­na might be snoop­ing on your data through Tik­Tok. ByteDance says that’s not true, but the fight is on.

Here’s the twist: Appar­ent­ly, the secret sauce for Tik­Tok’s awe­some­ness (aka the algo­rithm) is super impor­tant to ByteDance. Sell­ing the app with­out it would be like sell­ing fries with­out the ketchup! So, ByteDance might just say “see ya lat­er” to the US mar­ket instead.

But wait, there’s more! Even with­out the US, Tik­Tok seems to be doing okay finan­cial­ly. Most of their dough comes from Chi­na anyway.

So what now? ‍♀ We got­ta wait and see how this plays out. Tik­Tok might win the legal bat­tle, or ByteDance might call it quits in the US. One thing’s for sure, the dra­ma is far from over!
