A recent Pew Research Center study shows a significant rise in Americans, especially younger adults, using TikTok for news, in contrast to other social media platforms where news consumption is static or declining.

The data is seen as particularly worrisome for many, especially considering the app’s known influence from the Chinese government.

The study indicates a sharp increase in U.S. adults getting news from TikTok, particularly among younger demographics, with 32 percent of adults aged 18 to 29 using the platform for news. (Trending: Jury Reaches Verdict In Paul Pelosi Hammer Case)
