AUSTIN, Texas — Feeling blessed, never stressed is the attitude we teach our chicas to take on the world —that includes social media. With TikTok’s rise in popularity, we have seen the girls get up and dance to songs such as “Sunday Best,” “Don’t Start Now” and “Renegade.”
This week on Club Latinitas at Home, we showed the girls the importance of staying safe while using social media platforms. Today, technology is how the world works so that can mean running across content that’s inappropriate, unwanted comments and direct messages from strangers and personal information for the world to view.
Using the TikTok app, the chicas were instructed to create a short video dancing along to popular TikTok songs. The video would also highlight their personal tips for staying safe online.
Scope out these TikTokers in the making!
Remember, you can still be yourself and have fun while staying safe. Never be afraid to question strange comments or followers and make sure to let a friend or parent know right away.
During this time of social distancing, it is inspiring to see how society is finding humor and creativity in TikTok, but that’s all it should be —a place for fun so please don’t be suspicious (don’t be suspicious).
