Are TikTok And WeChat National Security Threats?

The secret to the success of higher ed crowdfunding is the engaging portal that is customized according to the requirements of the organization. The user interface must be efficient and user-friendly to achieve the desired results. The design must focus on being able to anticipate what users need to do so that their action will be facilitated.

Meanwhile, the White House has issued an executive order that bans TikTok and WeChat starting September 12, this year. ByteDance, the Chinese owner of TikTok was ordered to give up its US assets as well as any data that were gathered in the country. Previously, the administration has restricted Huawei’s ability to buy computer chips that were produced abroad using American technology.

Many countries have fully embraced China’s approach to the internet because they are uneasy over Facebook, Google and Amazon’s dominance within their borders. Governments are considering new taxes and restrictions on the operations of the American giant companies. With the US crackdown on TikTok and WeChat, other nations are looking at their dependence on US technology providers in a different light.

Vietnam and Turkey have started to tighten their control over American social media. China software and social media companies are beating their Western counterparts in the developing world. China has worked for years to expand its influence in Africa, the Middle East and Latin America by providing low-cost gadgets from Chinese smartphone and telecom equipment makers.

The White House issued a statement that the administration is committed towards American protection from all cyber-related threats to critical infrastructure, economic and national security and public health and safety. China’s Foreign Minister considered the US action as bullying.

Chinese online companies like Alibaba, Baidu and TenCent, the maker of WeChat have a thriving market. The companies have gained foothold in regions like Southeast Asia and Europe. In China, citizens are accustomed to the Chinese-only search engines, ecommerce sites and social media sites.

Campaigns for higher ed crowdfunding can attract major donors through customized interfaces that will allow ultimate engagement, relevant and focused themes, mobile optimization and 24/7 support. Donors usually want an opportunity to be involved beyond just making a donation.
