A TikTok ban in the U.S. may cause severe damage to these online communities

President Biden signed legislation Wednesday that could ban TikTok, leaving users in the United States worried about losing the communities they cherish. Creators are concerned about the potential loss and TikTok has nine months to sell to a U.S. company. Users are anxious about rebuilding close-knit circles if the platform is banned. The TikTok community has been a source of comfort and support for people with marginalized identities or stigmatized interests. Various individuals have found connections, understanding, and friendship on TikTok, helping them raise awareness, seek support, and cope with grief. A ban could mean losing valuable communities, connections, and platforms for many users.
