This abstract explores the several complex aspects related to the extensive prohibition of TikTok, a widely influential social media network. The rapid and significant increase in popularity of TikTok has not only transformed the digital environment but has also triggered heated discussions about issues of privacy, data protection, and cultural ramifications. Authorities in several nations have implemented measures to limit or prohibit the application, citing concerns such as potential risks to national security and safeguarding user data. This abstract investigates the underlying reasons behind these prohibitions, analyzing the geopolitical, technological, and socio-cultural aspects that have influenced the decision-making of governments. Furthermore, it examines the repercussions of TikTok's prohibition on the platform's user population, content producers, and the wider social media environment. The study employs a blend of qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, such as content analysis and user surveys, to offer a thorough comprehension of the consequences of prohibiting TikTok. This case enhances the existing discussion on the regulation of social media platforms and their influence on global digital culture by presenting many viewpoints on this prohibition.
