Is TikTok a global threat? The complexity of privacy in the digital age

Have you ever had a marital dispute in a restaurant? o Did you have a lot of business in the restaurant? or did you do some business in a not too orthodox restaurant? Have you proposed to someone at a restaurant? Have you scolded your children at the restaurant table?

How did they plan to do it all in a public place? They are exposed to the obscurity of others.

Conventions about “public”

For Nicolas Alvarado, to do some of these things at the restaurant table, is part of something involved against the state, since it is a social society that leads us not to see the people who eat in the restaurant.

Generally, good manners say that if you go to a restaurant, you should only focus on what is going on at your table and not sleep around other people’s tables. It is this covenant that “protects” the diners and allows us to develop behaviors that would otherwise be private in a public place.

Let’s imagine that the law suddenly changed and all the restaurants were equipped with rice paper shelves, rice paper screens that divided all the tables to guarantee the privacy of all diners.

Given the recent suspicions of the government of the United States of America, about the use and management of the personal information of citizens in this social matter, Nicholas spoke with Leon Ruiz, consultant strategist and innovation, to discuss whether this social network could represent an instrument of surveillance. society

Is the company transparent?

Which opinion, according to the writer, could arise from the existence of more l’acor, more tracking between one table and another, because if someone, let’s say, social pressure not to look at the neighbor’s table, maybe someone can catch it. a little nail and they begin to cut holes in the rice paper wall to see what happened on the other table.

This, for the writer, is a parable of the digital society that we call our time, but it is not his idea, it is the idea of ​​a philosopher and writer named David Brin, who addresses this metaphor. a book called “The Translucent Society”, where he fights for a society of protection, for a transparent society;

“It is false that the society in which we all see each other in an oppressed society, against the means of the digital world, what they suffer, we are responsible for our actions, we are all subject to accountability, because we all he sees and we all see.

About the complexity of maintaining privacy in the digital age

From Nicolás’ perspective, something that Brin does not address is that if that restaurant has a microphone under each table, everything that happens in this restaurant is referred to the tables. According to the writer, what the Congress of the United States of America says is something like that and it’s fine as long as the Chinese microphones are not, so it’s complicated by the possible abuse of the ban on TikTok in the United States of America.

Is TikTok the worst form of digital social media surveillance or is it one like many but is it Chinese?

According to Leon Ruiz, Tik Tok, far from being one part of the Antichrist, could also be one of the authors in this surveillance capitalism, which could represent a threat to the big Big Data companies in the United States, because it is. a social network that allows everyone the ability to reach more than 150 million users in the United States alone, a figure that cannot be compared with any other platform.
