As the world wonders what to do about TikTok some organizations are taking it into their own hands and blocking the use of TikTok throughout their company, one such organization is BBC. BBC has announced staff must begin to delete TikTok from any corporate devices unless they are using the app for editorial or marketing purposes.
BBC’s decision to do this comes shortly after the social media app was banned on government devices as well.
TikTok responded with the comment that the company was “disappointed with the BBC's decision and said bans were based on fundamental misconceptions and driven by wider geopolitics".
Despite BBC’s decision the company’s TikTok account remains active with nearly 4.4 million followers and continues to post content.
