Is TikTok Choking Trend?

Is TikTok Choking Trend?

Earlier this month, two young girls died after participating in a ‘challenge’ involving the Tiktok app. This has prompted a call for the social networking site to take action against the ‘challenge’. However, the ‘challenge’ has raised some questions about the role that the social media site plays in spreading dangerous content.

Skull Breaker Challenge

During the past few years, there have been several viral challenges that have gone viral, putting kids at risk. The Skull Breaker Challenge is one of them. While it may be a fun challenge, it can also lead to injuries and even death.

During the Skull Breaker Challenge, two people ask a third person to jump. Once the third person is on the ground, the other two challengers kick their legs out from under them. It looks like the action was a deliberate attempt to get the third person to land on their head.

The Skull Breaker Challenge has injured many teens. One of them, Sarah Platt, broke three bones in her neck while attempting the challenge. She is still suffering from postural tachycardia syndrome.

Another viral challenge that caused serious injuries was the “milk crate challenge” in 2021. It encouraged people to stack milk crates. This challenge caused ACL tears and spinal cord injuries.

A recent challenge on TikTok is the “Blackout Challenge.” This challenge is a variation on the “choking game” challenge. It forces people to perform a life-threatening task until they pass out. The challenge was initially titled “how to asphyxiate yourself.” It is a challenge that could lead to serious injuries and even death.

Another viral challenge that could cause serious injuries is the “Throw It in the Air” challenge. The challenge involves throwing an object in the air. Many people have reported concussions and broken necks while performing this challenge.

Other viral challenges that have been reported to cause serious injuries include the “Penny Challenge,” the “Momo Challenge,” and the “Cereal Challenge.” These challenges involve pouring cereal into the mouth of a willing participant.

Many people are concerned about TikTok’s involvement with the Skull Breaker Challenge. TikTok has issued a safety post urging users to report videos containing the challenge. TikTok also said it would remove content related to the challenge. TikTok has also been involved with other viral challenges, such as the “Blue Whale Challenge” and the “milk crate challenge.”

TikTok has also been sued by parents of two girls. The parents of two girls allege that TikTok served harmful content in their daughters’ accounts. They filed a lawsuit against TikTok in Pennsylvania. TikTok did not respond to the lawsuit.

Blackout Challenge

‘Blackout Challenge’ is a viral craze on TikTok. The trend encourages kids to hold their breath until they are unconscious. In doing so, they cut their oxygen supply to the brain, which can result in serious injury.

Experts have warned young users to stay away from the trend. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued warnings in 2008. There are also cases of children dying after participating in the challenge.

The CDC estimated that more than 80 children had died after trying the challenge in the past. Some of the challenges are dangerous, such as the Skull Breaker Challenge, which encourages people to bump someone over. There was also a video of a girl asphyxiating herself.

TikTok was also criticized for putting videos of Blackout Challenge on the app’s main screen. In 2008, the CDC issued a warning, saying that the blackout challenge was “an activity that is dangerous for children”.

In a recent article, the Social Media Victims Law Center, a nonprofit group that represents the families of social media addicts, warned parents about the Blackout Challenge. In particular, they advised parents to talk to their children about how the challenge can affect them.

Children who participate in the blackout challenge are not always watching for danger. Kids often play the challenge alone. Kids often have their phones in their hands while playing the blackout challenge. When TikTok videos are played on the app, kids often watch and participate in the video.

Children may also take the challenge as a means to experience a brief euphoria. However, experts say the blackout challenge can be deadly for kids who play alone. In addition to cutting off oxygen to the brain, prolonged strangulation can also cause serious injury.

Experts warn that the Blackout Challenge is an attempt to experience a short burst of euphoria. But the blackout challenge can also lead to long-term complications.

According to TikTok, its algorithm intentionally motivates children to participate in the challenge. The company claims that it aims to keep the videos relevant to small children, but it is not always successful.

Parents of two young girls who died allegedly after participating in the ‘challenge’

Several kids have died while attempting the ‘blackout challenge’ on social media app TikTok. The Los Angeles Times reports several children in the tween and early teen range have died. There’s even a 46-page lawsuit listing 20 other dangerous TikTok challenges.

Arriani Jaileen Arroyo and Lalani Erika Renee Walton were two of the aforementioned victims. Arriani was an intelligent and socially conscious girl who loved dancing, dressing up as princesses and playing makeup magic tricks. She became addicted to TikTok. She was 7 years old when she got her phone. She posted videos of herself dancing and singing in the hopes of becoming TikTok famous. She sadly didn’t make it. Her family is now suing TikTok for her wrongful death.

The Arroyo family’s quest to find out what happened to their daughter has resulted in a wrongful death lawsuit against TikTok. The lawsuit names TikTok, Facebook and Apple as defendants. In addition to the lawsuit, Arroyo’s parents are asking the court to compel Facebook and Apple to provide them with a forensic report on Arriani’s life. They’ve also requested that Facebook and Apple provide them with a list of all the Facebook pages and accounts that featured Lalani in any way, shape or form.

The Walton and Arroyo families have a long road ahead of them. The TikTok challenge has claimed two lives and the parents of these kids are determined to see the TikTok off the hook. In the wake of these tragedies, the Arroyo family is doing their best to educate parents and children alike about the dangers of social media and to prevent future squanderings like this.

The TikTok ‘Blackout Challenge’ has been around for a while. Many kids have died while attempting it, but this is the first time the company has been slapped with a wrongful death suit. The company has a legal resource for parents of children harmed by social media. The company’s best-in-class legal department has spent several months researching the case and is armed with an arsenal of legal knowledge and technology. We know this because TikTok recently filed an amicus brief in the case of Lalani Walton’s family.

Social media role in spreading dangerous content

Despite social media’s many benefits, it can also be a hotspot for spreading dangerous content. According to a Wall Street Journal investigation, social media can contribute to stress, anxiety and depression, adolescent body image issues, and other problems. In addition to spreading harmful content, social media has also been linked to cyberbullying.

According to a recent survey, nearly three-in-ten respondents say that social media has a negative impact. These respondents believe that social media plays a role in spreading fake news, hate speech, and harassment. They also believe that social media is a contributing factor in polarization, causing people to believe everything they read, and creating echo chambers.

However, these views vary by political affiliation. Republicans are more likely than Democrats to believe that social media has a negative impact. Those with moderate-to-liberal views are more likely to believe that social media has a neutral impact.

One of the biggest challenges faced by social media companies is identifying and preventing the spread of content that violates their policies. Some content prohibited by the platform includes posts that encourage violence, incite violence, or invite others to commit crimes.

Another issue faced by social media companies is the risk of misinformation spreading faster than a pandemic. For instance, the anti-vaccine movement is using social media to spread anti-scientific content. A study by Merchant and Lurie found that modern electronic methods have been used to spread fake news.

In addition to identifying and preventing content that violates their policies, social media companies should work on developing methods that combine artificial and human intelligence. Several companies are trying to create approaches that allow them to avoid recommending harmful content. Some companies have also implemented fact-checking programs.

Although social media can play a positive role in providing reliable information about the COVID-19 pandemic, it can also be a hotspot to spread dangerous content. For instance, the recent shooting in New Zealand was broadcast on Facebook. The platform has also been used to spread rumors about the origin of the virus, including conspiracy theories.

Many individuals depend on social media platforms for information. As a result, responsible authorities have called on media companies to provide accurate information. However, there have been complaints that the platforms allow content that promotes violence, hate, and conflict.
