This week on “REVOLT Black News Weekly,” we explore TikTok’s impact on Gen Z users’ mental health as well as the role the algorithm bias plays. Many outlets report that Gen Z are people who were born between 1997 and 2013. This demographic is the social media platform’s most-engaged users. In our segment, we talk to a young man who quit the app, a therapist/content creator, and an expert who studies social media algorithms.
Inspired by Sean “Diddy” Combs’ successful “State Of Emergency: The State of Black America & Coronavirus” town hall, “REVOLT BLACK NEWS” is a platform that is designed to report news from the perspective of Black people for Black people.
“When I started REVOLT, I always wanted to develop a platform to report the news from our perspective, from our lens, from our people, so I decided to launch ’REVOLT BLACK NEWS,’” said Combs. “We’re here with solutions. We’ve already heard about what we can’t do, but this is what we can do.”
