TikTok is Fundamentally Parasitic Says Reddit CEO

Reddit CEO and Co-founder Steve Huffman had put a controversial statement on popular video sharing platform TikTok by calling it as “Fundamentally Parasitic”. The statements are part of a talk with Facebook VP at the Social 2030 event at Silicon Valley.

Maybe I’m going to regret this, but I can’t even get to that level of thinking with them. Because I look at that app as so fundamentally parasitic, that it’s always listening, the fingerprinting technology they use is truly terrifying, and I could not bring myself to install an app like that on my phone. I actively tell people, ‘Don’t install that spyware on your phone.

Fingerprinting technology is a process in which tracking apps users’ browsing activities and the session are done to sell data to the third party.

These are baseless accusations made without a shred of evidence.

A TikTok spokesperson told TechCrunch

Huffman criticizes the app the most at the valley while others praise the app for its innovations.
