first_img 0 Now playing: Watch this: Stronger data privacy laws may be coming to the US Post a comment 1:41 Tags In conjunction with the settlement, TikTok said that starting Wednesday it’ll direct younger users to “a limited, separate app experience that introduces additional safety and privacy protections designed specifically for this audience.” The version for younger users doesn’t allow sharing of personal information and puts “extensive” limitations on content and interactions, TikTok said. TikTok also launched a series of safety videos Wednesday aimed at guiding users through the app’s community guidelines, privacy settings and digital well-being tools. As part of the settlement, the app must also comply with COPPA going forward and take down videos made by kids under the age of 13.  TikTok has reportedly surpassed 1 billion downloads on iOS and Android. Joel Saget / AFP/Getty Images Social video app TikTok will pay $5.7 million dollars to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that it illegally collected personal information from children. TikTok, previously known as Musical.ly, lets users record themselves lip-synching to popular music videos and share the clips with friends. The app has reportedly surpassed 1 billion downloads on iOS and Android. The FTC had alleged that the app’s operators violated the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act by failing to obtain parental consent before collecting personal info on kids under the age of 13, according to a release Wednesday. TikTok also failed to delete that personal information when they received complaints from parents and their children, according to the FTC.”This record penalty should be a reminder to all online services and websites that target children: We take enforcement of COPPA very seriously, and we will not tolerate companies that flagrantly ignore the law,” said FTC Chairman Joe Simons in the release, which noted that this is the larges- ever civil penalty obtained by the commission in a children’s privacy case.

first_imgPeople who are happy and confident about their appearance are more satisfied with their sex lives, have better self-esteem and enjoy healthy relationships with their spouses, a study reveals. According to the researchers, body image is strongly linked to overall life satisfaction and feelings about romantic relationships.“The study shows that men’s and women’s feelings about their weight and appearance play a major role in how satisfied they are with their lives overall,” said lead study author David Frederick from Chapman University in the US. The findings are consistent with the emphasis placed on the importance of being slender for women and for appearing athletic and lean for men.  “It would seem, therefore, that we still have a long way to go before we achieve the goal of being truly happy with their bodies,” Frederick added in the paper published in the journal Body Image. The team analysed more than 12,000 participants between ages 18 and 65 years and asked questions focused on personality, beliefs about romantic relationships, self-esteem, television viewing and personal characteristics.

People who were dissatisfied with their weight reported substantially less satisfaction with their sex lives and lower overall self-esteem. People’s orientations towards their relationships – known as “attachment styles”–were linked to how people felt about their bodies.  Women with anxious and fearful attachment styles were dissatisfied with their appearance. Dissatisfied people had higher neuroticism, had more preoccupied and fearful attachment styles and spent more hours watching TV. “Satisfied people had higher openness, conscientious, extraversion, are more secure in attachment style and had higher self-esteem and life satisfaction,” the study noted. “People who are less confident in their appearance become more fearful that their partner will leave, which further fuels their worries about their appearance,” Frederick stated.last_img read more
