KARACHI: I would like to draw attention to the misuse of an app called ‘Tiktok’, by the youth. Even though I belong to the same generation, I believe the app that was intended for harmless fun has become more of a nuisance. It has slowly become the need of every teenager, and they waste hours using this app. They do not realise that they could be utilising this time better by learning a skill, or gaining knowledge or anything else that could help them in the future. They could also spend their time helping somebody or playing sports, which would keep their mind and body healthy. Instead of focusing on their lives, and prioritising their careers and studies, they are getting addicted to these apps that add nothing of value to their thought process, and waste their time.
