One South Carolina school is cutting down on social media while on the school campus. Horry-Georgetown Technical College has banned the use of TikTok while on their school’s wifi. Both students and staff members are no longer allowed to use TikTok on any device using the school’s wifi.
WBTW reports that the decision was due to security concerns and after South Carolina’s Governor Henry McMaster’s request to block TikTok would help benefit the school. School officials sent out an email to students and staff members to inform them of the recent decision. The block of TikTok took place immediately and is in the protection of the students, faculty, and staff. Recently, Governor Henry McMaster requested all state agencies to block the use of TikTok to protect and secure each of the agencies.
Will other South Carolina state agencies follow this same action? Not sure what may occur in South Carolina state agencies and if this will trickle down to other states. What do you think? Check out the full story here to see more from those that WBTW talked with at the school.
