Trump on Wednesday gave ByteDance until December 4 to finish up a proposed takeover by Oracle and Walmart, as indicated by a representative for the Treasury office. —https://www.cnbc.com/2020/09/21/tiktok-deal-unfair-but-reasonable-chinese-state-media-says.html
The news came in the end of September that the U.S. President affirmed the takeover of TikTok by firms Walmart and Oracle. An eleventh-hour victory is how the website CNET put it that evening.
CNBC here yesterday was explaining to readers how that victory is going. It hasn’t worked out all that great yet.
At the time, for perspective on the deal moving TikTok from China to the U.S., I looked someordinarygamers, who were doing videos about it.

someordinarygamers said that TikTok did resolve its problem. here’s the link to their channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/SomeOrdinaryGamers
About what people say on the Internet, so many people communicate on the Internet about fringe. someordinarygamers say that they are a gaming program, but they look at a lot of tech issues that sometimes are only superficially related. The face of the channel is a funny gentleman, able to navigate the game of Minecraft or a Twitter thread, as much as he can make himself heard on YouTube.
You can see the difference between an ambitious young TikTokker aiming for fame, and a fringe TikTokker just kind of shouting out to whoever. It isn’t a subtle distinction.
That said, someordinarygamers does have a pretty good YouTube channel.
YouTube and TikTok aren’t the same at all, other than that they’re both social media apps.

Do you enjoy Star Wars? The inveterately well-known movie, the first one released by Twentieth Century Fox in 1977, can be quoted the following. “It was as if a million voices cried out in pain/And were suddenly silenced,” Obiwan laments to Han Solo and Luke Skywalker, aboard Han’s ship, the Millenium Falcon, during their search for Princess Leia, Darth Vader having kidnapped her.
At that moment in the film, the Empire, under the command of Vader and of Grand Moff Tarkin, has just destroyed her home planet, with the power of the Death Star, and Obiwan knows it thanks to The Force.
That’s how it would have been in the eventuality that the White House banned TikTok (my tie-in). The biggest issue is that the Chinese government would have access to information about TikTok users that would compromise U.S. security.
The Four Benefits of Data Mining: Google’s Side of the Data Story https://www.infosecurity-magazine.com/next-gen-infosec/four-benefits-data-mining-google/
In the late nineteen eighties, not uncharacteristic for a young man, I had a tape duplicate of 1977’s Star Wars. The story of the Rebel Alliance appealed to me very much, the way it does for so many.
The nature of social media is to turn user ideas into content. Idly put, the site Portia’s Content Generator helped turn this subject into a workable draft idea.
Often, like on Facebook, a social media post can be a photo (or several), an emoji, or a hashtag, all of which are elements that add up to a status report, a post. In Silicon Valley, Facebook was like the best idea in the world in the early 2000s, something that earned a fortune, and had an impact on people’s behaviour all over the world. Of course, there have been other good ideas, but you have to admit that Mark Zuckerberg made good decisions.
The 2010 David Fincher film The Social Network is a terrific movie, a masterful film. It may not contain an account of the devastation of Leia’s planet Alderaan, but with The Social Network, you can get some appreciation of how Facebook has the capacity among people, around the entire planet, to favour constant unequivocal activity. Anyone with a social media account can be a keyboard warrior.
If Facebook tossed a rulebook of dictator guidelines at its users, I can’t help thinking about how media would become in a “scene” like that. Ha, well, it would be Orwellian, if it isn’t already.
Orwellian alludes to being of a dictator nature. If you don’t know, an algorithm is a mathematical formula, in the purest sense of the word, and when you put the word into a social media context, the word means the method of delivering content of specific interest to you. That is why social media is addictive.
I surmise that an autonomous voice relies upon that if it needs to communicate itself, in any shape. Without autonomy, it would be, I think, a market with only the dullest of billboards to show, nothing to write home about.
Goods consigned and a surfeit of the ordinary. A random post I chanced to read this all, who I subsequently unfollowed, relayed that regarding the U.S. election, news info should be professionally-packaged, light on ads, accurate and not misleading, and properly researched and based in reality. That is all well and good, but it implies that a beginning blogger may not reach the starting gate without being subject to specific, and somewhat arbitrary, rules of conduct.
I’ve heard, like on someordinarygamers on YouTube, that the component of the Internet which is your most valuable currency is data.
There is a call for public news and music industry Top 40 hits, yes. However, every stipend ought to be made for periphery who have a right to speak as freely as the most prevailing of media.
Everyone who likes YouTube videos experiences this hiccup. Trying to make a living as a YouTuber, when creators on YouTube aren’t getting through to viewers, the views on their videos begin to slow down. Some YouTubers talk about that, contending with the algorithm that holds back videos.
We have to practice diligence using social media, but it is a form of social life in the days of lockdown (2020). TikTok may only be a few years old, but someordinarygamers said he expects it will last for years now, the Walmart and Oracle deal having been approved. Of course, at the moment, this is not so clear, the deal becoming increasingly complicated.
I wouldn’t mind if someordinarygamers looked again at how this deal between the White House and ByteDance might turn out.
You may now return to your regularly scheduled program.
Happy holidays, and good luck. There are more opportunities, despite the pandemic, in the twenty-first century, than there have ever been before.
Take advantage of a few of them.
